Alice goes analog
Hello, blogging world. If I said I could count the number of times I forayed into blogging on one hand, I would be lying. (Two hands may even be cutting it close.) But, recently I've been doing so much lurking on other's blogs and being so passive about starting up again that it started to really get to me. I want a neat little space where I can share too. I kept holding myself back because I felt like there were so, so many fabulous and established blogs out there already, and I didn't know how I would make mine different. And maybe it won't really be all that different, but I will make it mine with my photos. That is perhaps the one thing I can really claim. I'm not saying it will even necessarily be good, but it will be mine. And as cliche as this sounds, it will give you a view of the world from my eyes.
So when I got my first round of film back from the photo lab, I felt I finally had a good reason to post. I hope you'll stick around and stay awhile. :)
The image above was taken in the West Village a few weekends ago. I didn't actually notice the men painting until I saw some other photographer pointing his camera upwards. I have this nosy habit of peeking to see what others are shooting, especially if it seems to be a random shot. For some reason, the men painting the movie poster just felt anachronistic. Everything else in NY seems to be on massive LCD screens after all.
