I saw Homer Simpson at the tanning salon I go to in NYC’s East Village. Someone should’ve told him he needed to remove his clothes first! Can you believe that? Click once on this image to enlarge.

Something catches my eye and I photograph it, always with the intention of reworking it into something I can call my own. My thinking: It’s not what you look at that matters but what it is you see and how you see it. That’s what matters. That’s how the artist shines through.
