The island of Inishbofin looking decidedly tropical for the West of Ireland... First time shooting Velvia 50 on a Yashica Mat - tough film to get right, but good weather and a great film lab definitely help!
Many thanks to the folks at T&C Live for a great review of this shot 'Missed Bus'. Shot taken with a Kodak Portra 400 / Yashica Mat
G. La Rosa and Son Bread Co. Inc. Elizabeth Street, NYC.
Established in the late 1910s, G. La Rosa and Son Bread Co. Inc. operated as a bakery until the late 1990s. The “G” was for Giacchino. In 1917, when he was just 17 years old, he came to America from a town in Palermo Sicily called Bagheria which was famous for bread making. Now operating as an antique shop, this photo was taken 2015.

The sign indicates this shop has been around since 1947 and it likely hasn't changed much since then (save for the advances in grafitti). It wasn't until after I snapped a photo of this storefront that I learned that Debbie Harry had lived in one of the apartments above for a few years in the '70s (her and Chris Stein reportedly thought it was haunted and that 'all the standard poltergeist nonsense went on there'.
A few images from my latest foray to the wilds of Connemara.
