Nice, the bucket of muddy frogs scares me, not because I’m afraid of frogs, I’m just afraid of the person that is going to purchase the bucket of frogs for anything besides making them all pets or setting them free again…
Anyways, it has always been my goal that at least once in my life time I want to make it to New York to at least visit.
Having just watched an episode of Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern last night, I have an understanding of the bucket o’ frogs. Shane, you should be very, very afraid.
Nice shots, Khoi. I especially enjoy the Apple Store one. Very moody. The Sunrise Cleaners shot is perfectly composed as well. I was going to set the Apple Store one as my new desktop picture, but the enlargements are private. Any chance of moving these to your public album?
Shane: Those pictures should be set so they’re freely available. Maybe there’s a Flickr hiccup going on.
I like the first pic – the bicycle next to the shop keeps catching my eye for some reason?
No kidding, took the same Sunset Cleaners image myself!
It’s amazing what can be uncovered in this city.
I totally freaked at the frog picture. I thought they were being cooked!
Then I read that they were live and felt better.
Love the shot of your nephew.
Nice shots, I also thought the frogs were going to be cooked.
Khoi Vinh: Not sure if you noticed but I think your reply was meant for Sean Flanagan, not Shane Guymon. Or are these two guys the same person. Maybe I need glasses.
Roberto: yes, you’re right, it was me who needed my glasses. I’ll edit it to read properly.
You have a great eye for design and photography.
Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
