A walk in Nakameguro

A walk in Nakameguro

I just got a hand full of rolls of film back from the lab.  I still love the surprise I get remembering photos I forgot I had taken as I am looking through my developed rolls.  This is really the enjoyable part of photography for me.  I have also recently stumbled upon a few photography sites that I have really enjoyed and added to my Blogroll: Dear Photograph:  This is a very simple concept but a great site.  People bring a photo from the past to a scene in the present.   It is hard to not feel nostalgic about some of these photos.

Vivian Maier:  Was an American caregiver who lived in New York City in 1951 and spent her free time shooting the streets of the Big Apple.   She left behind more than 100,000 negatives when she passed which were discovered at a thrift store in 2007.  Her work is simply amazing.   There was a Kickstarter Project to fund creating a documentary 'Finding Vivian Maier'.  It will well worth your time to review some of her work.  I ordered her book.
