Can we tawk?

Let's face it, dead and abandoned blogs are oh-so common, as those who frequent the Blogosphere (to use the buzzword-compliant term) can testify.

I just want to assure all of you that I do not intend to let this blog become one of them!

It's just that with work, family, various projects and such, my opportunities for shooting and my time for blogging have been close to zero the past few months. :(

I actually have three items in the works here, one of which just needs the "ok" to post a certain photo.

What I really need are a couple of clear weekend afternoons with non-sucky weather when I am otherwise free. Unfortunately this has not happened in the past few months, with "clear" and "free" appearing to be mutually-exclusive, and it's highly doubtful that it will happen until January.

I don't want to come off as teasing you, but here are a few things I do have in the works and just need to finish up ...

  1. Forgotten Cuisine II. I'm concentrating on chicken places, drive-ins and a few others and focusing on several of the places which have been mentioned in the comments on the original item.

  2. A walk-through which seems to get more extensive all the time. I have pieces of this shot, but I need to get back for at least two sessions. I'm going to cover Farnam from roughly 30th. to 40th, including, yes, the Midtown Crossing area. Now before you start rolling your eyes at the thought of yet another Midtown Crossing shoot, I plan on doing this a bit differently, using cross-processed medium format.

  3. A "Then And Now" nostalgia thing, scenes in NYC as they appeared decades ago and now.

I really wish I could give you more of an idea of when these should appear, but as of this day, I don't know, and I don't even know when I will know, if that makes any sense to you. :)

So anyway, I wish everybody a Happy Hanukkah (early this year, huh?), Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, and I do promise I'll have some meaningful content on line here just as soon as I am able!
