Shot Of The Day: November 29, 2017





QOTD:
They can tell you what to do
But they’ll make a fool of you and it’s all right
Baby, it’s all right
We’re on a road to nowhere

— David Byrne

Love Is The Answer

Shot Of The Day: November 27, 2017





QOTD:
We’re all homeless boys and girls
And we are never heard
It’s such a lonely world
People turn their heads and walk on by
Tell me, is it worth just another try?
Tell me, are we alive, or just a dying planet?

— Todd Rundgren

Backstory: This is Bailey. I met him while walking home last October. His owner told me he’s very, very sweet. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder – not the shareholder…

Locale: Stapleton

Equipment: Nikon D5500 / Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR

QOTD: Then you gazed up at me and the answer was plain to see – ’cause I saw the light in your eyes.

Backstory: I saw Todd Rundgren with Utopia on October 15, 1977 at the Toledo Sports Arena. He was excellent…I saw him again last night. 40 years later. He was incredible. Political (fuck Trump), experimental, diverse, energetic (dancing his arse off), and in excellent voice. And I love that Staten Island legend Kasim Sulton was with him last night (as was Prairie Prince of The Tubes). Kasim, of course, was a member of Utopia. One other item – the amazing Greg Hawkes of The Cars played keyboards and saxophone.

Locale: T-Ville, Staten Island

Equipment: LG G5

Shot Of The Day: November 22, 2017





QOTD:
And you don’t like your medicine
And I don’t mind
No, I don’t mind
You will get used to it
So get used to it

— Dennis Leigh (aka John Foxx)
