Bum Poo Alley Becomes a Photographers Paradise


These days numerous fashion shoots are being done in the grungy alleyway called Jersey Street between Crosby and Lafayette Street about half a block down from Houston. It has been named " Bum Poo Alley" by Gwen Akin because the homeless use it as a public toilet. There are even two hand painted signs on the walls telling people not to piss and shit there. I took some shots of both of them and made them into photo grids. Now models and actors strut their stuff for the cameras right there while crews pick up what excrement they find before the working day begins for the actors and models. One pretty young female model even pranced around topless for the camera for a fashion shoot. Needless to say she had great looking boobs. Alleyways are always good for photo shoots of manly men. There an acter can look and snarl like Brando and get away with it. On a Saturday a few years ago I was asked to shoot some extra stills for a short independent film Fiore DeRosa and Steve Shaw made called " Distraction." They shot some of it in our loft because two of the main characters were photographers. My son Adam Lowell Ludwig and I did most of the still photography. The art director on the publicity shoot was very impressed with Jersey Street. He told me he was going to come back and use it for some other stuff he wanted to get down on film. Early on December day I even saw an episode of " Law and Order" being filmed there, and NYU film students are in love with it as well. Bum Poo Alley is getting famous.

I always am hesitant to show people the good stuff for fear it gets 'whored out' by all the photo trendoids.

Flip side to this is I'll show this stuff to people who don't live here because they'll just shoot it once and won't be back with a crew the next day.

Gotta watch those hometown lurkers and "site stealers"

cheers jx

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://viagra.wilantion.ru]Viagra 100mg pills[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
