These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

To read my grudging babblings about design, click the button.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

- Less Than Jake: Is This Thing On?

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

-Chris Orbach: Jane

I could be condemned to hell for every sin but littering."

- Soul Coughing: Idiot Kings

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

This place is just *obscene*. NOTHING can prepare you for what it's like in there.

Here's the website, but honestly. You have to GO there. It's like a willy wonka factory with a zillion Hasidic oopma loompas. It's just outrageous.

EOS 300D (used) £250.

Sick, sick price..

my local camera shop. it's about the size of a large wardrobe, and stuffed, floor to ceiling, with cool old tech. Richard (the owner) has given me more stuff than I've bought from there (including a drop-dead gorgeous f2 50mm lens)

My educated guess on size is that B&H; has 50,000 or so square feet.

That's not a typo.

They have EEEEEEEEEVERYTHING. I took one more shot inside (I had to sneak it.) hangon....

Ahh, the holy mecca of photographers.
I just got my Canon 20D from them yesterday. Second time they've gotten my moula.

Would love to visit the shop in person some day. It would be like crack, I tell ya!!

Though, I can't find a decent small camera shop near me - only freakin Ritz. They bought out everyone!!

I love watching the items you're purchasing zoom overhead on conveyer belts- while little hasidic men take your money at one station- and you pick up your product at another.... it's so well planned and thought out-that place. I fully expect the staff to break into song at any minute - though after seeing a clip of a mastisyahu performance i am expecting the hasidic reggae!
