Anthony DeRosa wowing a crowd of kids doing wheelies on department store mountain bikes last summer in Philly; shot on my dads old Minolta X-570 loaded with some Kodak Portra 400, probably at f/8 or so and a shutter of 1/1000th.

New York In The 80′s

Went back in time looking through this “New York in the 80′s” photoset on Steven Siegel’s Flickr. There’s currently 386 photos from when NYC was a totally different place than it is now. The photo above was titled “Hole in Manhattan Bridge Walkway”. Crazy.

If you want to go deeper, he’s got a lot more sets to get lost in.

Matthias Dandois rolled through Chicago to take part in some Bakery projects last summer and during his time in town we got to shoot some photos on the roof of the Bakery. Kachinsky had a stage built by the midwest’s favorite carpenter, the one and only Jeff K for Mathias to shred on and he didn’t disappoint. It was an amazing shoot and I had a hell of a time hanging off the edge of the top of the roof to get some crazy angles; it was a great summer day spent with some new and old friends. This photo never really had a home, so I figured it was best to share it here.

Good times in a backyard playground.

Documentary: Carson Leh

Carson Leh has been making custom leather bicycle seats and cycling accessories for 4 years. He started in 2010 recovering torn BMX saddles and in 2013 he founded Leh Seats. He not only manufactures leather bike saddles and handlebar tape, but has recently branched out with new leather goods such as Macbook cases. He produces small production run leather goods for contract in the USA.

Filmer Brian Chace visited his Austin based workshop this winter to speak with him about his work and inspiration. This short film shows the process of one of his custom made BMX seats. Each BMX seat is guaranteed for life against tears.

You can find Carson at www.lehseats.com or on Instagram at @lehseats.

I recommend starting your day with the above short film by our friend Nicholas Maggio. It’s 2.5 minutes long and mixes romance, crime, and the world’s fastest 4-door sedan (in 1985) together very nicely.
