Yet Again

It seems like every six months or so the Islamic Republic suffers a major air travel tragedy, today a military plane carrying elite members of the Revolutionary Guards crashed killing 36 people. Russian designed Antonov 74 crashed immediately right after takeoff at Mehrabad Airport. This is the 3rd military jet crash in Iran in less than 2 years.

After all these years of mobile phone camera technology, I finally have a phone that takes pictures among other things. First photo was recorded as IMAGE_001.

Black Friday

For the 2nd year in a row, I covered Rev. Billy and his Church of Stop Shopping on the day after Thanksgiving, which is known as Black Friday by retailers. He is not a religious person. He uses his act (Rev Billy) to bring people's attention to labor, environmental and other issues.
On this day he walked through SoHo and exercised the demons out of the cash register inside the Victoria's Secret shop! Victoria's Secret company prints millions and millions of catalogs using non-recycled paper from trees cut in virgin forests in Canada.

Adam, Eve and Me

I file this under "I really do not get art installation". I actully had to cover this for a client. The artist, Marco Perego, had one of his creations (a giant iPod) placed in front of the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue with extras, and people in monkey masks, the works...(called Adam, Eve and Me) till the cops showed up and made him remove everything.
