One forgotten post. This was the post I thought I’d posted last week. This new WP editor played a trick on me. Apologies to Joe whom does such a great job on this site.

Anyway here it is a picture of one of me favourite flowers.

Cafe People

One of the things I miss photographing right now is people in cafes. This was taken in a cafe in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I loved the simple scene of every day life.

Out Of The Past

Black And White Photography, Emilio, Photography

For those of you who have no idea what film noir is, the movie, Out Of The Past is one of the best examples. Think guns, dames, and hats. Noir’s visual style had its roots in German expressionism with dark, rich blacks and vibrant whites. For my money, the best writers were Raymond Chandler (The Big Sleep, The Maltese Falcon) and James M. Cain (The Postman Always Rings Twice, Double Indemnity). Cain did uncredited rewrites on Out Of The Past and came up with lines of dialogue like: “She can’t be all bad — no one is,” to which another character responds: “She comes the closest.”
