Some Bass Playing Guy: This isn't interesting at all, Subby.


As a photographer, I do think it's interesting.  It is a style that I'm starting to see more and more, the whole juxtaposition of iconic with the current.

If this was the first time seeing this style, it'd be very interesting.

So apparently everybody had to take a picture in front of CBGBs.

You mean the Patagonia store?  Maybe they just wanted nice comfy down jackets.

New York, Manhattan, Lower East Side, southwest corner (I think) of Ludlow and Rivington. Let's see a photo of that!

There's a goddamn sandwich wrap place there now. But it's not a chain. Small blessings.

/At least that's what I see on Google Maps.

Pre-pandemic, people jack up traffic all day long at the Abbey Road crossing to take pictures.  It was fun to watch.  Now it's kinda sad.  Barely any foot traffic.

Thudfark: Now this is how you superimpose seamlessly, and interestingly, subby

That WAS very cool. Thanks for sharing with the class.

I've seen some of those before, pretty nifty.   Spent some time in London as a youth in the very early 90s, and had a book that detailed the locations where a lot of iconic pictures were taken of bands, mainly from the 60s and 70s.  Got to see quite a few of those, including the stairway in Camden Yards where the cover from the first Clash album was taken.  Was really fun and interesting.  So I see where this photographer enjoys it.   This is Fark though, so 30 year old 'gamers' who rarely see the sun need to crap on it.  Oh well.

Cool concept, but pretty uninteresting to me as I'm not familiar with most of those photos. Not sure a lot of those can really be considered iconic.

There's actually a great tea shop on the first floor there called Physical Graffitea.  Good stuff
