Main Street Flushing, 1976-79, Part 1


I'm going through my old negatives from the late '70s, trying to archive and get a handle on them. After 40+ years, I'm discovering some pretty good images that I had ignored previously.

Why Flushing, of all places? Well, I travelled through Flushing nearly every day for four years, while attending Queens College. It was inevitable that I'd practice the skills I learned from Winogrand there.

Here are a few examples. More to come!

So...what's new?

OK, I did it again. I walked away from this blog for a year. 10 lashes with a wet noodle for me.

A quick recap:

I've been taking pictures on the street. I've also been scanning, digitally remastering, and organizing photos I took in NYC in the 1970s. Why? That's something you'll learn more about in the coming weeks and months.

In the meantime, here are a few relatively recent photos. Inspired by the "Winogrand in Color" show at the Brooklyn Museum (highly recommended), I did these in color. Watcha think?
