My lucky number must be three, as that’s how many times I’ve had the pleasure of photographing the remarkable Lene Lovich. Our first session was in 1981, pictured here. I loved to scout out abandoned or unusual locations for my photo shoots; in advance, if possible, but sometimes I’d just have to wing it. In this instance, Lene was staying in an old hotel in Midtown, so I went off to explore our options besides her hotel room. And boy did I strike pay dirt! Up on the roof I found a long-neglected medieval-looking turret; a secret gothic castle hidden in the Manhattan skyline. In other words, perfect for Lene. The sunlight flooding through the ornate (glassless) windows made beautiful ancient shapes on the floor. About that floor…it was carpeted with generations of pigeon feathers and bird poop. Seriously - every little thing you see in this photo is pigeon-related. The birds had their own hotel suite up there. It’s very possible that if one dug deep enough, one might unearth perfectly preserved Velociraptor feathers. Being a naturally curious native New Yorker and urban spelunker, I was in heaven, and I must give major props to LL for being as into it as I was. Lene and I did another session in 1983 (this time in my apartment, with Les Chappell). I also photographed her and Nina Hagen performing at what may have been one of the best record label parties I’d ever been to, when Stiff Records moved into their loft on Howard Street in the early 80s. (Also one of my favorite labels). The other photo is a piece from when I was doing a lot of hand-tinting and experimenting with my Marshall’s pencils, inks and oil colors. Just a palette...

Catwall in San Gimignaooo😻. * Meow (or gnao in Italian) from San Gimignano, one of the towns in Tuscany I visited this past weekend. SG is known as the Medieval Manhattan thanks to its tower houses. In the Middle Ages the town had 72 'skyscrapers', now there are only 14 of them. * This part of San Gimignano could become known as an Italian Broadway with its own version of "Cats"😺😉. So, gimme a gnao if you agree 😀 . . . . . . #LPPhotoChallengePerfectWeekend #cat_of_instagram #towers #medievalmanhattan #sangimignano #wanderlove #wanderlust108 #prettylittleiiinspo #prettylittletrip #triptoremember #lovetravel #iamatraveller #traveldeeper #traveloften #travelstroke #travelstyle #travelblogs #abmtravelbug #nomads #nomadstories #folktravel #globewanderer #italytravel #italyiloveyou #ilikeitaly #europetravel #europe_pics #bestitaliapics #top_world_photo #tuscanygram

Wandering the streets of San Gimignano aka “Medieval Manhattan” for its many tall medieval towers. It once had 72 towers making up its city skyline, and it is one of the only medieval cities that has remained (almost) intact. Also, it is recognized as one of the UNESCO Heritage sites of the world. 🇮🇹 . . . . . #sangimignano #tuscany #medievalmanhattan #history #vineyards #underthetuscansun #tuscanytour #winetasting #italy #dayoff #tourlife #travel #wanderlust #seetheworld #toscana #whenintuscany #bellissima

Breakfast in Ghent
"Mediaeval Manhattan" and ‘Europe’s best-kept secret’". Its all about Gent! What a vibrant and absolutely beautiful city! I do belive the cities you never planned to visit are the most remarkable! #Gent #belgium #cityvibes #flandreslove #tourism #gent #medievalmanhattan

He descubierto el placer de correr por los senderos de la vía francígena en esta zona de la Toscana🇮🇹. Los olores, los colores, la soledad y el frescor de primera hora de la mañana en contraste con el calor sofocante🔥 de las horas centrales del día en las ciudades y pueblos de Toscana merecen un estudio más detallado de la ruta que, desde la Edad Media, une Canterbury🇬🇧 con Roma🇮🇹. Una especie de camino de Santiago que atravesando Italia y Europa recorre la historia de nuestro continente♥️ . #medieval #siempreviajoconmiszapas #medievalvillage #viafrancigena #medievalmanhattan #runtuscany #correresdevalientes #correromorir #rollinghills #upanddownrun #tcsnycmarathon #corrocuandopuedo #countdowntonycmarathon #cuentaatras #1000miles1year #2018goldchallenge #amerithonchallenge #toscana #tuscany #sangimignano #marathonmom #garminfenix3 #nike #nikewomen #nikerunning #nikerunclub #jusdoit #iruntheworld #tuscanlife

Den fast mediterran anmutenden Terrassengarten in Merseburg gab es zwar zu Kaiser Heinrich II noch nicht - trotzdem hat er hier seine wichtigste Pfalz gehabt. #merseburg #merseburgerdom #mediterranean #weinbau #unstrut #naumburgerdom #romanik #romanic #romanical #medieval #medievaltimes #medievalmanhattan #churchtower #architecture #unesco #unescoworldheritage #travelstory #saalekreis #saaleunstrut #mittelalter #sachsenanhalt #travelphotography #germany #reiselandsachsenanhalt Dank an die Vereinigten Domstifter für das Foto.

Long ago people must have filled this town like in New York, centuries have passed but it seems like the astounding towers, the busy crowds and the tremendous estate prices still remain the same 😛 to be fair, who doesn't wanna come here?
