Dear Diary....


Behind these doors are 40 lanes of classic bowling, tucked under the arm of Menands, NY's industrial district.




I'm going to complete a photo project this spring that will feature Olympic Lanes as its centerpiece.

I have to act fast, though, because the building is slated for demolition in April.

Stay tuned!! -LEON


It's been five years since primary shooting for The Wedding Present's "Mystery Date" video began.

To celebrate I'll post some exclusive never before seen shots from the weekend.

Here's lead singer David Gedge preparing for the opening shot, looking out over North River to Jersey City.

About two feet of snow fell on NYC the night of the Maxwell's show in Hoboken. I somehow made it there (and back) alive.

In this moment I wondered: Could this be the taxi I shot two days prior for the video? It has the same movie ad on it.

I wish I had thought to brush off the number and compare it to the reel. Forever a mystery.

Maxwell's 2/8/13

They also played at Diana's office

And finally, the poster:

This video was so much fun to make, and a landmark moment in my career in photography.

Thanks for checking it out!
