About the blog:
Park Slope Lens is a photography blog that focuses on the daily life of one of New York's greatest neighborhoods. It features the work of many local photographers shooting what makes their community special to them. These pictures are intended to help Slopers see their neighborhood with new eyes and to help foster community as well. You won't find this stuff in the newspapers. You won't find it in the City. You certainly won't find it anywhere else in the country. Come here to experience Park Slope via the people who love it the most.
Spencer Ritenour is a transplant from the midwest who is proud to call Park Slope home. His three primary modes of transportation are: 1) New Balance runners, 2) super rad bicycle, and 3) the F train. You may find him reading a book at many of the Slope's cafes. And he takes pictures. A lot.

Greg has called Brooklyn 'home' since late 2004 and has lived in Park Slope since 2005. He is currently a full time graduate student and resident artist at Jewish Theological Seminary in Manhattan. When not struggling to learn Hebrew, Greg enjoys photography, ink drawing, biking around Park Slope (as well as the rest of the city) and being with friends. A relatively recent (and reluctant) convert to digital photography, his favorite camera format is black and white 4x5 film. Feel free to visit his art blog at Aemiessence Fine Arts.
