  •   joephilipson @shanerobinson thank you! I'm trying to do what we talked about. Still a very steep learning curve, trying to find my market, all that jazz. But I'm going to make some stuff to pass around and see if it leads to an open door. 7d

joephilipson Ever just sit and watch a stranger, then make up a whole back story about their lives? I pretend this guy's wife of 40 years died and now he can eat all the ice cream he wants. Pretty much the opposite of Pixar's "Up". #livethedream #moreicecream #nyc #nycpeople #cuteoldpeople 1w
  •   alistof did you ask to take his picture? do you ever/always ask? thoughts on the etiquette of photographing strangers? (i, too, enjoy making up backstories) 1w
  •   joephilipson @alistof it depends on the situation, but when I'm out making street photographs I never ask, unless I'd like to make a more formal portrait. I don't give someone the opportunity to reject me, and I don't want to disturb the scene which made me want to make the photograph. If they catch me I usually just smile and walk away. If they seem like they've been exploited sometimes I'll share the image and maybe why I thought it would make a great image. Sometimes that confuses people other times I make a friend. But never be afraid to make a photograph of someone or you won't. 1w
  •   alistof @joephilipson thanks for that. 1w
  •   katherinemitchell I have a whole series of made up stories about strangers on the street. :p 1w

In the coming months, I am going to be self-publishing a magazine with my #kink work over the past two years. This will be a limited first edition run. This is also the first time I'm talking about it so you, yes you reading this, are one of the first people to know anything about my intention to publish. I am still in the layout and design stage, but if you're interested in keeping updated and getting a copy when it's ready, head over to my Facebook page and give it a "like." #puppyplay #puppy #ny #latex #fetish

joephilipson If you've never been to the Mummer’s Parade in Philly on New Years day then you're missing out. I think this photo perfectly describes the craziest block party I have ever been to. #crunk #mummers #Philadelphia #philly #mummer #twostreet #2street 2w
