Backstory: The whole wall idea has been so thoroughly discredited that only Trump could embrace it as a solution. The worker in the photo is Efrain, he’s building a retaining wall, something that actually serves a purpose – imagine a day without Mexicans in the U.S. That might be a (extreme) cure for xenophobia.

Locale: Tompkinsville

Equipment: Nikon D7200 / AF-S Nikkor 50mm f1.8 G

“Gotham” (TV Series) Prop Car

"Gotham" (TV Series) Prop Car (1)
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — July 21 2017. This first generation Buick Riviera (Model Years 1963-1965) is a prop used today at a film shoot for the “Gotham” TV series which airs on Fox. The locale was the old Paramount Theatre (Stapleton – corner of Union Place and Bay Street), which has been used a number of times as a Gotham location. The vehicle was parked on the Union Place side of the Paramount and guarded by some very friendly parking attendants hired by Fox.
