Bruce was a great mechanic…He disappeared twenty years ago and was never seen again. He owed some people a lot of dough…Oh well.

Photographing NYC for 25 years, six of them while driving a New York City taxi. Trying very hard to capture the city as life unfolds, meaning I never stage any of my photos! Also I am a close confidant of the immortal Dave Beckerman, (quintessential NYC photographer) and owner of the first photography blog in the known universe.

Great story to go with the photo, Matt.
The added advantage of being the photographer…you’re always privy to the bigger picture. 🙂
What part of Manhattan is this?
Queens…right across the east river…He really was good at fixing cars but not at fixing bets!
Many elements of interest here: the beat up car beneath the “Max” sign, the missing hubcap on the cab, the rolled up cuffs on the attendant’s pants, the prices on the pump, and the incongruity of the attendant just sitting there. I like the way the black hoses curl around to Bruce’s shoe. Nice work! Thanks for posting!
