permalink Block by Block, Brooklyn’s Past and Present
"The borough’s a patchwork of the old and new, but traces of its history aren’t spread evenly. There are 320,000-odd buildings in Brooklyn, and I’ve plotted and shaded each of them according to its year of construction. The result is a snapshot of Brooklyn’s evolution, revealing how development has rippled across certain neighborhoods while leaving some pockets unchanged for decades, even centuries." -Thomas Rhiel

Zacuto Great Camera Shootout 2010: It’s all About Latitude (by Zacuto)


permalink This man is arguably the first ‘silver fox’ to enter my life. I raised myself on Matlock - the suits, the smirks, the beautiful women, the puzzle-solving. All of it. What a goddamn handsome and charming man.

I guess part of me saw him as immortal. Or at least immortal to the point when I would get to meet him in person, at which point he would be free to leave this earth. In a way, he was a bit immortal. He played the role of Matlock starting in ‘86 - 26 years ago - and seemed like quite an old man then. Which just goes to show you, 60 is the new 40. 
What a face. Thank God for reruns.
