When we were on the verge of evacuating our house a few weeks back, I remembered the first thing I took were my basketball cards. I wasn't the biggest collector but my cards included some of the greatest players of all time. According to the Beckett, they are surprisingly not worth too much haha. You would think my slew of Shaq rookie cards would be worth some good money, but I guess not.

As seen on NEVERODDOREVENLA.COM
Macau! Spent day five roaming about the streets of the once Portuguese ruled nation. Considered the Las Vegas of Asia, Macau was an impressive area with classic architecture muscled by the commercialism of their neighboring friends in HK. For locals and tourists alike, it seemed like a haven to get away and sin it up a bit.
Flash it back day 5 muh!
took us 3 hrs to get out of customs!

Hey gang! My name's Chris Guy, and I'm a writer and photographer living out here in Brooklyn, New York. I did some shooting with Tikko Studios last year in SoCal, and moved out here to New York at the end of August. New York has been nothing but absolutely rad for the past couple of months, and although the weather dips down to the teens and the sun hardly ever shows its face, there's nowhere else I'd rather be. I can't recommend this city enough for anyone in their mid-20's with any sort of creative aspirations whatsoever.
Anyway, last month Louis came out to NYC for some R&R and photo fun. He asked if I'd like to post on the Tikko Blog from time to time for some FRESH perspective, and we had a couple drinks, one thing lead to another... and here we are! But first, mad props to Louis and Tigran for letting me post here with them-- they're amazing photographers and even more amazing dudes, and I'm honored to be posting some shots on the same page as them.
So last month here in NYC was really rainy and wet-- nothing but gloom and doom from sunrise to sunset. For whatever reason two Sundays ago, the sun decided to pop out for a little 4 hour window. I crawled out of bed, grabbed my gear, and headed over to Central Park to try and grab some shots while I could. It's pretty weird, because there's this thing called "the seasons" here, which is a trip coming from SoCal where it's perpetually summer and the coldest it ever gets is in the low 60s.
I guess what I'm trying to say is even though it's colder than a mother here on the east coast, autumn is absolutely gorgeous. The trees, colors, and overall feel of Central Park is just insanely beautiful, so here are a few quick shots that don't do the actual thing any justice whatsoever...
A not so friendly game of futbol in the mud. These dudes were way hardcore.
Autumn is awesome. Til next time!

..or at least that's what I thought this car was when I passed it going 85mph on the freeway on my way home last night. It was a creeping silhouette leaning over the divider, then I noticed the tires and the break lights from the side and came to the realization that someone had just dropped the car from the sky.
Anyway, I went off the freeway and thanks to my techy iPhone I found the route to the nearest bridge there. By the time I got on top of the freeway, there was firetrucks and police helping the driver, a tv crewman showed up 5 minutes later.
looking in the other direction, I realized it was the same spot that my car was totaled 5 years ago

Crazy morning. Probably the biggest scare this neighborhood has ever felt. Fire was literally 3 blocks down the street, no ones house was damaged, everything was under control by day light. We definitely lucked out. My heart goes out to those who lost their homes in this weekends terrible events.
