Olympic Diner closed down in June due to the hyper-gentrification going on throughout the city. I went there specifically because I read on Jeremiah's Vanishing New York and shot this on 8x10 color Polaroid film made by The Impossible Project. It was a test release that needs some more work. Hopefully they will be offering it again soon. The film is perfect for what I am trying to show.
An image of Coney Island showing a building no longer there. It used to be a theater and from what I am told it was beautiful. You can see the wonder Wheel off in the background.
Ok Ok so my Daliy Pics post has not been everyday, but I am working on it and hope to have some more images for the future on a regular basis. This images is from Asbury Park, New Jersey, a place dear to my heart. I used to go there as a teenager to see bands like Social Distortion and Dramarama. I believe this building is no longer there. I shot it with some of the earliest Impossible Project color film.
Lately Asbury Park has had a small resurgence. Hopefully this time it will last.
