Through The Viewfinder: Brooklyn Bridge From Manhattan Side

Last weekend I went for a lone wolf (solo) photowalk to lower Manhattan. Equipped with my Nikon D7100 and my newly bought Nikkor 70-200mm 2.8, I set out to capture my findings in the day. Here you’ll see 3 photos of the Brooklyn bridge in black and white captured at 70mm. It was interesting and at times hard using this massive glass to do some street and scenery photography, but I like challenge. It lets me play with capturing a frame a bit different than if I had my 35mm on there. It’s a bit tuff at times, but if you can deal with the struggle you can come out with some fantastic images. I’ll be sharing more of the photo walk in the coming days. For now, enjoy these photos…

A few days ago I UNDS’d one of the most anticipated retro releases from New Balance, the M997GY. Talk about quality, shape, materials and details. This has it all. Just like last years NB M990GRY 30th anniversary, these came out in limited release world-wide (Those that missed on the 990GRY will get another opportunity to buy it again next year). The make-up comes in the classic New Balance grey. A hue that pretty much goes with whatever outerwear you choose. Basically, It’s one of those rare gems that everyone should have in their closet. Material wise, it’s stitched upper is fixed with beautiful buttery pigskin suede, mesh and various details throughout the shoe that you can view in these photos. For me, it’s the best general release of the year 2014. I don’t think there’s any other GR that can come close to this from an overall quality standpoint.  Enjoy the other photo…

F.O.T.B.: Saucony x BAIT Shadow Original “Cruel World 3 – Global Warming”

I was lucky once again and received the email to purchase the latest BAIT collaboration. This time it’s part 3 from their dope Saucony Original “Cruel World” series and what a banger it is. For me, this is probably their best saucony collaboration. Not saying that the others weren’t good, because they were, but this one here has some of the nicest mix of materials of the 3. Perfect for the coming cold weather. Unfortunately, I’m really caught up in some photo work and I’m in the process of changing around my work station, so I took these really quick photos for you to see. I focused on the details so you can have a better look of the materials. Materials like the premium leather, supple wolverine silk suede, and tiger heather textile which is my favorite accent on the shoe. You can see it on the quarter, heel, ankle lining and the back of the tongue. There’s also a 3M Saucony logo and a clear blue outsole.. As of late, BAIT has been pushing out a lot of good color-ways and make-ups; looking very forward to the adidas collab. Currently this is my favorite Saucony collaboration for 2014. Right next to ENDs Saucony Burger. Enjoy the images…

ASICS x Good Will Out Gel Lyte V “KOYO”


asics good will out KOYO

About time someone jumped into the arena with a ‘Really GOOD’ ASICS collaboration in 2014. So far, in my humble opinion, it’s been a very disappointing ASICS x (insert brand here) collaboration year. Everything has been boring, and ugly; shoes that had me plenty of times saying, ‘What The Fuck Is That?”. Well, except for the re-launch of the Sneaker Freaker ‘Alvin Purple’ and a couple of the BAIT collabs. Anyway, The Good Will Out came through nicely with this make-up and story behind it’s color-way dubbed, Koyo (Colorful leaves are to the Japanese autumn what cherry blossoms are to Spring. The viewing of autumn leaves has been a popular activity in Japan for centuries and today draws large numbers of travelers to famous koyo spots both in the mountains and in the cities)…
