Let’s make this New Year’s Eve one for the scrapbook. The digital online scrapbook that is. Baristanet now has its own Flickr photo-sharing group and our own photo editor, Frances Pelzman Liscio, who also caught this picture of a grasshopper celebrating New Year’s Eve. (In Photoshop, we think. And if not, we’ll have some of what she’s having.) And what better timing, a tipster who prefers to remain anonymous has already sent us a picture taken from his cellphone of the ball being tested this morning in Times Square!
Liscio, by the way, is a well-known photographer of the punk rock scene and a former photo editor at Rolling Stone. Her work is currently on display at Parlor. Check our her website, “Punks and Roses,” here. The winner of our photo contest wins a Punks and Roses 2008 calendar from Fran. Please upload your photos to the Flickr Baristanet group, but if you can’t manage the technology send them to tips. And yes, we want to see it all: all the over-eating, over-drinking, balls dropping excess of this final night of 2007. And especially snaps of First Night! (iPhone users note: Join Flickr and can send your photos directly from your phone.)
