besides being that guy i used to hear about in those random radio free hawaii commercials back in the day, otto is part of the new influx of young, fresh, local small businesses in the chinatown area. recently, he’s run into trouble with the less-than-legit people who hang out near his shop. you know the ones that the cops seem to be too busy giving jaywalking tickets out to deal with? yeah those guys.
i was happy to take a few photos of him for an article in the chinatown newspaper. i kept it simple, just my trusty konica hexar af and a roll of kodak ektar. i snapped like two frames off with the 5D to be safe, but really loved how the ektar rendered the scene. thanks for baking that red cheesecake, otto! and we all hope the best for otto cake.
