|Fifth Avenue Upside Down|
Our Town Downtown/New York Press made tonight's "New York Scenes from a Bicycle" opening reception at Cornelia Street Cafe a "Don't Miss ~ Pick of the Week."
Here are six of my favorite photos from the show. The fifth one down is a Christmas Day 1960 photo taken by my father, Robert Pryor. The location: east side of York Avenue in front of the Old Timers' Tavern. Pictured: my cousin, Bob Pryor, my brother, Rory, me and my first two wheeler. My interest in photography started a few months later when Dad and I started touring Manhattan by bike. Dad brought his Yashica 44 each time. I own a thousand of those photos from long ago.
Hope to see you tonight under the candy striped awning at 29 Cornelia Street.
"River to River: New York Scenes from a Bicycle" my book of photography will be on sale for $12 at the Cafe during the show's two month run.
