12 - 31 - 10 At 34th & Fifth, the shaggy-haired blond guy stood out with his long straight bangs that fell to his eyebrows. It reminded me of a blond Beatlesque hair from way back when. His name was Louis from Belgium and wore a blue scarf around his neck. The sharp-looking black guy on 34th St., had interested hair going on. His sides were shaved and into circular swirls on his head. The top of his head had a mini-Mohawk fringe that went down the center part. It looked good on him. He wore a large black scarf, tightly wrapped around his neck and over his gray blazer-like jacket and his jeans were tucked into black leather combat boots. The last guy that I saw on 34th St. and had to photograph, wore green plastic fun eyeglasses celebrating New Year's with 2011 over his eyes. Atop his head was a multi-colored clown-like hat with Happy New Year on it. It was my last photo for the year and many more to take in the New Year!

11 - 19- 10 Walking along 40th St., near Madison Ave. were two cool guys from the band Mulholland Drive, getting a bite to eat from the nearby deli. They played Kenny's Castaway's in the Village on Fri. nite and playing a gig in Philly the next day. The guy that I took photos of wore a gray fedora over his scruffy hair and goatee, a black puffy jacket, tight lack jeans and black high-top sneakers. Very cool. The Japanese guy on 34th St. was a bit more subdued in his checkered shirt that he wore outside his jeans, thin clear framed eyeglasses and top it all off with diamond stud earrings in both his ears. The black guy standing in front of Victoria Secret's on 34th St. made me look at him, since I liked his long-dread locks that were down to his collar and under his black cap that he wore backwards. His oversized dark sunglasses were frameless, looking like one piece of plastic across his eyes, wore a black sweatshirt with a bright green face caricature on it, a black scarf wrapped around his neck, under a gray army jacket. On West 38th St., I noticed a tall, slim black guy approaching and his hair was noticeably unique. I loved his hair, very styled and haven't seen anything like it. His top hair was a long swirl of hair on this head and perfect and his sides of his hair was shaved, very unique. His eyes were covered in a pair of oversized black oval framed sunglasses, black sweatshirt, under a gray sweatshirt hoodie, gray sweatshirt pants that came to his knees, black socks and black high-top sneakers and a long-hanging necklace around his neck. Walking into Hell's Kitchen flea market, it has become one of my favorite places to visit, considering all the cool people who go and are in the neighborhood. I photographed this guy before and took him in front of a wooden wall, said his name was Zandra, wore a belted salmon colored dress, over tight gray pants and wore turquoise high top sneakers with lots of multi-colored bangles on his wrist and a broach on his dress, very outrageous, but individualistic, loved it. Nest was a guy dressed almost in all black, the New York code apparel, except for his gray fedora hat, black suit jacket, scarf wrapped around his neck, black jeans, black sunglasses and white shoes.

Took him aside, as he was wearing an army green, short jacket, a grey hoodie sweatshirt under it, tight jeans and had a light beard, looking good. The next guy, was into posing for me in torn jeans, tight gray, pullover sweater, very large aviator sunglasses and carried a shoulder bag and a little wisp of facial hair under his bottom lip. Gave me a nice smile for his portrait. The guy with two cameras across his chest, one he said was for film, the other digital was dressed in a 3-piece suit, each piece not matching, along with a tie and looked eclectic. He had necklace adornments around his neck, one large and a wood peace sign on a chord. Over his curly hair was a colorful knit cap. His wooden piercings thru one end of his ear and out the other, were eye-catching. Walking back to my apt. and on 9th Avenue, a very tall, slim guy, dressed in all black, stood out amongst the crowd of people. He wore very slim, black tight jeans, a long white t-shirt, hanging out from his biker leather jacket. He draped a long wide loose black scarf around his neck and had on a pair of classic black sunglasses.
