It's All About the Hair - Adam, Walnut St.

Adam describes his style as "traditional with a twist." The twist might very well be the hair. Or possibly the eyebrow piercing hiding behind the aviator sunglasses. You'll just have to trust me that it's there. Interesting that piercings are so back in vogue again. It happened so subtly I didn't even notice until I took to the streets with my camera. I still remember all my college friends taking them out at the end of 1990s. Seems like this time, though, they've come back without any of the scenester implications. Whatever happened to all the "indie kids" and alt culturists of whatever shape or stripe? Hard to find anyone who fesses up to being anything anymore—at least as far as subcultures go. Maybe Polhemus is right. The era of the style tribes is over.   
Adam and I talked cameras and apertures. We both share an affection for flattened out depths of field. Here's an example.
