new and exciting criteria for plaid capture. There's just SO MUCH of
it out there, its been down right daunting. SO, for the holidays,
instrad of offering you 5,000 run of the mill plaid captures a day,
were going to be selective and offer you the most bang for your buck.
Quality, not quantity, but in this capture, you get both. Quite
possibly our favorite capture yet, and the winner of PVP Holiday
Challenge #1: 3 under one roof!

the case like a pack of hungry wolves.

subject on opposing side of crosswalk. The light is red. I wait
preparing my camera phone. Walk sign appears and subject approaches, I
pause, as if to dial a number, all the while keeping him in my sights
as he draws closer. At just the middle of the White street stripes I
snap him, but as the photo is revealed, a pedestrian in front of him
has obscured his plaid shirt worn under an open jacket from view. I
turn coolly on my heel and snap him from behind. Not the frontal I was
hoping for, but it will suffice. I'm hungry and it's past lunchtime.

Red Fish, Blue Fish...Just one more indication we're not in Maine anymore, aka, our last [double]flash back to summer.
Our Interns have been busy busy bees raking through masses of summer snapshots now making their way into the annals of facebook photo abums. There is SO MUCH PLAID out there this fall, here at PVP, we have really had to develop quite a systematic discerning eye for which pics we feel are worthy of our blog site.
The pair of pictures below, made the cut due to A.) We miss Maine. B.) Foster, our subject, owns not one, but TWO plaid shirts, one in red and one in blue, and seems to alternate them at random, though we did, infact, assign a statistics intern to come up with a pattern, but to no avail. C.) This is the first of many times we are going to say we are no longer posting summer pictures, so don't pack up your bathing suits just yet....

Five Leaves. Wedge Corner of Bedford and Lorimer Streets. Greenpoint/
In the process snapping a pic of himself to post on facebook for the purpose of showing off his new specks to all his friends on facebook, Sparky, pictured left, has unknowingly placed himself in front of a plaid garment of unknown shape, size, and origin. This random act of plaid capture did not go unnoticed by our new CPFI (Collection of Plaid on Facebook Interns) who have been added to the staff here at PVP, just in time to ride the wave of the Back To School influx of plaid-as-mobile-uploads we have noticed on facebook since labor day. The monitoring of this new type of Plaid Voyerism is of such huge interest to us that we have added an entire wing on to Headquarters to house the new staff, and have made it our ONPFF (Official New Project For Fall)
Basically, our interns, both I.O. (In-Office), and A.L. (At Large), are combing the WWW 24 hours a day looking for previously uploaded pictures that people have taken of themselves for any number of reasons, and just happen to be wearing plaid and/or unknowingly capture it in the background.
Stay tuned for further updates. Thanks to Sparky for being our PPC (Plaid Poster Child).

propultion device heading strait for waterfront park westbound on N8th
in Williamsburg. Friend on foot (non plaid wearing) trying desperately
to keep up. (pictured at right edge of photo)
check on Franklin Ave in Greenpoint. Usually, but not always, plaid
of this variety is most often seen on female subjects or younger male
flannel 1 inch square checks. Streakin down Driggs, by the time I drew
my camera she was half a block gone.

For most of us, Saturday August 8th was just another nice summer evening, not much goin' on...BUT in one tiny pocket of the universe, aka Chilly Ranch, in Albany, Vermont, folks were getting a blast of Disco Heaven. Out of this World, Heloise and the Savoir Faire rocked the North East Kingdom Music Festival, with all their usual, fabulously unusual trimmings of spectacular splendor, plaid clad dancers included. For more information and future show dates for Heloise and the Savoir Faire, go to www.heloisemusic.com.

This is a plaid wearer we used to know a long time ago, back when he was blond and wore big baggy, wrinkly clothes. He was a wicked sick trick skier back then, and from what we can gather from spying on his facebook page, he's just as frickin' crazy now... and still wearing plaid.
