Most recently I became a contributor to Hidden City Philadelphia and my last assignment led me to making arrangements with the Philadelphia Port Authority to tour and make a photo essay of the soon-to-be-demolished Mustin housing in the south Philadelphia Navy Yard.

And this lead quite unexpectedly to meeting up with WHYY/NewWorks reporter Emma Jacobs for a conversation about my experience there and about exploring abandoned places in general, which will be airing on the radio (!!!!) Friday (tomorrow!), December 30, 2011 between 6-7pm EST. If you are not local to Philadelphia, you can listen to WHYY here live. They will also be showing some of my photos from the Navy Yard online as well as a video of the interview, in which I look like a hot mess. I was expecting to be making a videotaped appearance that day, I was expecting to be shooting outdoors in the rain and dressed accordingly. Oh well.
To cleanse your eyes of such things, I offer a slideshow of the best of 2011:

There is so much I missed posting about these last few months, including one of my Lensbaby photos being featured in a full page ad for the Sweet 35 running in most popular photography magazines for the past couple months! but! to make up for my lack of presence a bit, I am having a 2012 calendar giveaway. I try to lay low for Christmas, but the New Year I can get into, so to celebrate I am giving away two calendars. All you have to do is leave a comment saying you would like to be entered in the drawing - you can do so here on the blog, on my Facebook Fanpage, or an reply to @helveticaneu on twitter. One entry per person, one winner per household. You must enter by midnight EST, December 31, 2011. The drawing will be January 1, 2012. You can pick whichever calendar you like from my redbubble shop.
