This is kind of an odd tour, but here it is. There are several of these videos showcasing the everyday shops in and around our area. I don’t know about you, but I like shouting at the screen when I see places I know on T.V. or the internet.
Take a look at places you probably see every single day.
This week’s image comes courtesy of reader Soo Koon Lee, who writes that “the dissonance of this photo is pretty funny.”
Here at Bensonhurst Bean, we were quite shocked to learn that in these tough economic times, even the famous chef character seen on pizza boxes has to moonlight in order to make ends meet.
Lee caught up with the hardworking cuisinier, whose likeness was gracing a sign outside of local restaurant Istanbul [2202 86th St], slicing up delicious döner kebabs to appease the hungry lunchtime crowds.
The above photo wasn’t taken in Manhattan or Brownstone Brooklyn.
It was taken right here on Cropsey Avenue and Bay 22nd Street. This image proves that there are plenty of gorgeous, neglected old buildings and hand painted signs in Southern Brooklyn just waiting for someone’s tender loving care to restore them to their former glory.
With this beautiful shot, photographer David Tan goes digital, and yet still manages to achieve his trademark muted colors.
David captured this classic street scene using a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS 48mm,
f/5.6 at 1/125s, ISO 100.
