Waiting for the April Fool's Parade

On August 12th -- my one-year anniversary in Manhattan -- I shot the last photos needed to finish my first official New York street photography project. A lot of folks who know my work seem confused that I'm returning to the practice of "Street Photography," although they've all been too polite to point out the 1970s are long over.

Secretly I think it's funny that any form of art that's fun could fall out of favor. That is, I understand how it might lose its audience -- "Oh, we saw that last season in Prague" -- but I can't understand how it can lose its practitioners.
