How about a Subway Series for New York City!! I know, I know! It’s a little early to be predicting. But it’s opening week for baseball and there’s nothing wrong with wishing! Why not? The Giants just won the Super Bowl, the Knicks just beat the team with the best record in the NBA in overtime and the Rangers are in the playoffs. So Why Not?
I understand! The Yankees are down 3-0 and the Mets swept the Braves 3-0. So what are the odds? Vegas has the Yankees 7-1 to win the World Series and the Mets are 40-1 odds. Not looking good! Time will tell.
In the meantime, take a look at these subway cars from decades past that transported baseball fans to and from Ebbets Field, the Polo Grounds and Yankee Stadium. Courtesy of freedomstudiosnyc.com
If the end of the world is coming, then someone forgot to tell the Mexican/ Mayan people.
The western world has interpreted the end of the Mayan calendar cycle which ends on 12/21/2012 as some sort of prophecy that means the world is ending.
When actually it’s the complete opposite. According to the Popol Vuh, the sacred book of the Mayans, time was divided into eras. Each era lasts 13 baktuns (periods of 394 years)
Adding up to a total of 5126 years. The era we live in began on August 13, 3114 BC which makes this era end on, you guessed it 12/21/2012.
Following the Mayan belief that a new man was created in each era (mankind as a whole and each of us individually), a man better than the one that came before, we are now given the great opportunity to renew ourselves and our lives, to turn into a better version of ourselves, so this new man can re-establish a balance with the planet, the universe and all other living beings.
Mayan wise men said that in the teachings of the past, we find the knowledge to live a better future. Therefore, 2012 should not be thought of as catastrophic, it is merely the start of a new era, A NEW BEGINNING!
Which I think we all can use! It’s funny how we hear what we want to hear without listening to the facts! Just the facts!

Since Valentine’s day is only 29 days away. I thought it would be appropriate to post things that people love through my photography. SO, most of the posts will be LOVE related. 🙂
The first one is for guitar lovers. I just finished reading “Room Full of Mirrors” about Jimi Hendrix and his music. I’ve been listening to a lot of Jimi Hendrix lately. Great blues!! It made me go to a guitar store and hear guitar players jamming together. And to take these shots, of course!
They’re perfect as gifts for the classic rock n roll or guitar lover! Click Here to see more images.

So I’m a huge cop show fan!! I’m talking classic shows like Kojak, Baretta, Starsky and Hutch, The Rockford Files, Ironside, Law and Order AND Criminal Minds. Just to name a few! I mean, I could keep going!
The bottom line is that New York City has always been the BEST city for cop shows! 6 MILLION viewers tuned in to watch NBC’s new show Prime Suspect starring Maria Bello and it looks like it could be a re-make 😉 classic too! So when NBC was looking for “Classic New York” images for their set design, who’d they come to? Me!!
I’m excited to work with a network and especially on a cop show!! Subscribe Now and I’ll keep you posted on my progress.
STAY TUNED FOR A PREVIEW OF THE NEXT POST EPISODE! 😉
Check out some of the images they selected for their upcoming episodes.
