I fell in love with NoLIta back in 1998. At the time, we were fresh out of college, broke and living in Park Slope. Laziness and convenience kept us near the F-Train, so when we came into the city we tended to stick close to the Broadway-Lafayette train station. The only bar that was anywhere divey enough for us was Botanica, in the old Knitting Factory space on Houston and Mulberry. Sometimes I'd get there before everyone else and I'd wander around the neighborhood- exploring the old streets around St. Patrick's church. Flash forward five years and I'm walking the same streets- but now I don't have to take the train home.

i wonder if this post violates my famous rule #2 about blogging: never write about yourself. i don't think so- rather, it's an illustration of when it might be appropriate to include some personal detail- as supporting facts on a post about something else.

and what about that snow post, jake?
"rules of bluejake photography:
5. you should not appear in any of the photographs in the series- unless you appear nude."

that was a picture of yourself, but not naked. what's the deal. you're just breaking rules left and right.

Thanks for letting me use some of your photographs for puzzles. I really like the West village snow shot next to my friend, Ian's, December beach shot from Sydney, Australia.

those puzzles are great susan! check back here over the next few days- i'll be posting the high res nolita versions on monday.

PSD crop tool: click "perspective" in the options and you can straighten out the distorted shots.
