Scott Lynch – best friend and beau – (aka Scoboco) has snapped photos for years, mostly of his daughters and, well, of me, but it wasn’t until about a year ago that he took photography on with a vengeance. Today he’s got almost 5,000 photos in his flickr photostream (and there are probably another 5,000 that didn’t make the cut!) His primary subject? New York City. He’s covered Occupy Wall Street from the beginning, compiling an impressive collection of OWS photos with rarely a day missed. His love of street art is also evident in his NYC Graffiti and Street Art photography set. And then there are his photos of art exhibits. But, for me, where Scott truly stands out is in his ability to see and capture the humor (and/or poignancy) in everyday New York City street scenes. These are my absolute favorites. And, though not necessarily evident in the photos I’ve selected, much of the time his captions are as clever and humorous as the photos themselves. In some cases they even make the photo (see Awed by art at the MoMA above).

The photos here are definitely in my top 20 but, as you can imagine, with 5,000 to peruse, it’s hard to narrow down to a handful. So, take a look for yourselves at Scoboco’s photostream, and you might want to wish him a happy birthday while you’re at it.
