A noble effort, but a long way to go

In Greenpoint, a mother and son take the new bike around the neighborhood

Mother and son in Greenpoint.

I saw this scene across the street from my Brooklyn apartment in 2001, and snapped a quick shot with my Olympus 35mm point and shoot. This is cropped from a much wider shot. The wide angle allowed me to get a snap without pointing the camera directly at the subjects. Tri-X film is pleasantly contrasty and grainy, and holds adequate detail even after a severe crop.
