Took my friend Ska, from France to the top of the Mori building to get a feel the vast, sprawling city that is Tokyo. Was able to click off a few images. The city goes on and on, only does it pause at the edge of the bay, when at times they just reclaim the land and keep on going.

I had the pleasure to venture uptown to Harlem when I was in NYC last month to go to a hip hop jam. To say this was an old school event would be an understatement, this was an ORIGINAL school event. It wasn’t an event to be watched, it was an event to participate and just chill out in. The organizers TOOLS of WAR, Grass Roots Hip Hop, featuring Grand Master Caz from the Cold Crush Brothers, Pop Master Fabel, in attendance to just vibe and meet up with each other, Crazy Legs Rock Steady Crew, Grand Wizard Theodore, ( this is the man that created scratching), his Mean Gene, Bobitto Garcia, The Original Jazzy Jay, and others that started the movement that we call Hip Hop. It was such a relaxed chill event up in Harlem on fading summer day.

Recently released by Posi+tive magazine a new issue 03 featuring a set of images called Doors and Gates.
To check the website click here Posi+tive.
Here is the introduction to the images.
We use gates to control the flow of
humans. to lock people out.
to feel safe. same with door.
they are the entry way into other
worlds. to go from the community
to the private. when they are open
we are free to move. when closed,
locked and chained, we protect our
secrets. we wonder what lies beyond
the door. Example, there was a festi-
val near my home the other day. Most
doors, and gates were wide open.
The community had chosen to let ev-
eryone flow in and out of their own
personal space. It was beautiful.
