Last year on a whim I decided to buy a Nikon FG film camera. Even though I’m a musician and if I have any creative expertise the majority of it lies there - it’s not always possible or convenient to create in a musical way so I in order to teach my hands and eyes how to do something new so I could create even away from my instrument and writing I picked up photography.
This was my first successful roll of developed film. The first two I had were exposed because I didn’t know take them out of the camera correctly - which was also a very frustrating experience because I had taken nearly three months to shoot the first roll and then a month to shoot the second. So after this roll I was determined to get it right.
These photos are from a Fall 2012 weekend visit I made to Brooklyn for a show I had with my band, Jungle Fires. During the trip we ventured around SoHo, Brooklyn for the show, Saturday morning breakfast at Le Barricou, and nights in Williamsburg.
