At McSorley’s, honor, respect, and tradition live and breathe in unique ways: Back in 2002, on the first anniversary of 911, at 3:43 PM, Richie Schmidt stood atop the bar and gave the most loving, poignant speech about the brotherhood ever heard. The sawdust covered floors soaked up more than spilled ale.
In tribute to Richie Schmidt, the FDNY and the NYPD, and to all who serve selflessly to protect, McSorley’s artist Gregory de la Haba created the sterling silver McSorley’s Firemen Helmet with the hopes that the honorable deeds of those who put their lives on the line each day, and to those who gave the greatest sacrifice, will be remembered each day —a tangible tribute to Never Forget.

Sometime in 2007 we (Fusebox) built the website for MTV’s 44 1/2 billboard, they let us run Empressr ads on the billboard. Pretty cool. Also some night shots of Times Square 2007, it has changed a lot!
I forgot to post these to my blog July’s Party Goat full moon. All shot with an Alien Bee ring flash off camera using a very low shutter speed, 6 seconds to 20 seconds.
