Summer of ’15

I am a wuss. No polar bear stuff for me. I like August and September when the water is nice and warm. There are other reasons too…

Coney Island 1985

Coney-1985! copyI’m sure I didn’t even bother to get out of my cab. I was pretty lazy at first. I think this would’ve been Stillwell Ave. and Stauch’s bathhouse in this picture, but I’m no expert. Had I a chance to go back in time, I think I would have concentrated on that colony of telephones poles, in search of an “artsy” snap or two.  I might have even dropped a dime into one of those meters and taken a stroll…

“My Last Roll of Kodachrome” 2008

Progress is hard to swallow sometimes. Even though I’ve shot black & white film for a very long time, once or twice a year I’d shoot a roll of Kodachrome just for posterity’s sake. When Kodak stopped manufacturing K-64 it came as no surprise to anyone, but hurt almost anyone who’d been raised on the stuff. It wasn’t a high contrast “big color” type of film, but it was the closest thing to reality that one could put in a camera. It had a long run and now it lives in our scrapbooks and 8mm home movies from our past…

When he gets home to his children, he’s a family man.”

I’m not a fan of violence but I have always run towards fights. What I have repeated many times is “I like motion and emotion” I suppose fights are as good as it gets in capturing both at the same time…©Matt Weber**Coney-Bike-Fight! copy
