Chili Time

Chilli Time

Chili peppers on sale in the market in Maidenhead in the UK about 3 weeks ago. It wasn’t quite cold enough that I was tempted to buy some and chew them raw, but if it was now I’d think about it. It’s freezing out!

The Echo Seller

The Echo Seller

The Evening Echo seller on Patrick’s Street, Cork, has been selling the evening paper for longer than I care to remember. I took a shot of him back in 2005 and he’s still there, braving wet and cold and every other sort of weather.

PS. shot on Saturday while on a hastily organised photowalk with AJ.

Panaflex

Panaflex

When I originally took this photo in Chicago (on La Salle, near the CBOT) it was a snapshot of a film crew. I took a few more shots of the crew but I was intrigued by the camera. Panaflex, what’s the specs on that then? Turns out it’s a product of Panavision, you know, that name that’s in practically every American film’s credits? Interesting history too although how they consider that big lump small enough to be handheld is beyond me!
