Chinatown!

My good friend, Eric, is in a photography class at Columbia. For a long while, we’ve been planning to take a photo tour together. We decided to head to Chinatown a few weeks ago for lunch and some shooting. We ate at Lao Szechwan–my favorite Chinatown grub! If you haven’t been, you must.

Let’s start with the chow.

Then, with full bellies, we went looking for photo-ops.

This one is my favorite. This is a piece of tilework that is on one of the buildings in the neighborhood. So much of the architecture is really ornate and lovely:
