Archival photos

These images were shot in Washington. DC at an anti was demonstration. The sad thing was that behind the rhetoric and moral indignation, there was a great element of having fun. This could not been helped in view of the general youthfulness of the demonstrators. This was really a sad outcome of these rallies.

Cafee' Mille Luci

A Saturday morning back in 1986 in the Mille Luci Cafe in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. I was shooting for an Italian client who wanted to make a book on the various Little Italys in New York. People relaxing, talking and standing at the bar for their caffe'. We simply call it  un caffe' and not un espresso because it's understood. Also, in the Italian style, espresso is drunk in a hot cup, standing at the bar and in one or maximum two gulps. It is followed by  small drink of water. It barely seems possible that these images were shot over 30 years.

Old trains

Strasburg, PA is a wonderful place to visit. The town is old and quaint in an authentic way. It is the home of the Pennsylvania Rail Road Museum and a wonderful old station with coal locomotives that features a very nice train ride. A real must place to visit if one goes to Lancaster County.

The aftermath

This is what happens to the countless evergreen trees that are used for a brief period of time during a Christmas that has been totally commercialized. I noted that some trees were already put out as garbage on December 26th. Go figure.
