Backstory: We always used this chant when marching in the streets (or in police parlance “parading without a permit”). I still love the streets and every day I see people I count as friends who I would never see were it not for my lengthy walks, to and from work. Mel works the overnight at a local Vet’s, taking care of the animals. He’s a good man. To Mel, and all of my fellow travelers: See you in the streets. Whose streets? Our streets! — TAG

Backstory: I worked for this hospital when it was part of the Catholic Archdiocese. I was hired here 25 years ago and I witnessed the hospital’s death in 2010. This campus survived, but under a new management and a new name (RUMC) – no longer connected to the Archdiocese. It ain’t the same. I miss St. Vincent’s. — TAG

Locale: West-Fucking-Brighton Baby.

Equipment: Nikon F2 Photomic (DP-1) / Micro-Nikkor-P 55mm f3.5, Ilford HP5 developed with Kodak HC-110

Leaving Arkham (Penguin Is Free)

Penguin Leaves Arkham - 1

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — March 19, 2016. In this week’s episode of Gotham, the Penguin was declared sane by Dr. Hugo Strange and was released from Arkham Asylum. Pictured: the “Arkham Asylum” set. This is actually the historic Bayley Seton Hospital in Clifton, Staten Island. I worked for this hospital for 20 years (1990-2010) and was stationed in the building shown for the last five years of my tenure…I am thrilled that Gotham is filming here.

Dump Trump

This shot from September is getting some hits now (on both flickr and DeviantArt). The woman in the foreground is the UAW’s Julie Kushner (she is a great leader and fun to march with – and photograph – very dynamic). To the right is a guy I’ve marched with many times, my UAW bro Brian Schneck. The locale? Why, Trump Towers of course:
