Welcome to a lifetime of pain : As a West Ham United fan.  

I did a photo search for 'West Ham fans' and a guy had written "If you're a West Ham fan, then welcome to a lifetime of pain" - it seemed a very appropriate comment to me.  My in-laws are from East London and are all die hard Hammers, so most of them know something of how that feels.

I have always loved football since I was a teenager.  My first job was even reporting on football for the local rag.  For some reason I got bored of it for a number of years - probably because I had no money, and going to a Southend United game was a rare treat; also because I spent years not being well enough to even consider going to somewhere as huge as Upton Park.  It wasn't until a few years ago when I borrowed my mate Kane's WH season ticket for two months that the sense of passion and excitement I'd had for the great British game as a teenager came flooding back and I was like - 'I let this go?'

I have met some great people at the Hammers and made some great friends.  It's not just about the scoreline for me (although that helps) - but the whole routine of the thing: the pre-match build up, the camaraderie, the coach trips to this country's nether regions that previously existed only in myth (like Wigan). Even meeting my mates at the best chippy in the world before a game is just what I did when I was a teenager.  

Plus as a photographer - I find the emotions on the faces of the people who attend these games truly fascinating.  Hammers are a rollercoaster of emotions and results and one thing I have found over the last few years is that their fighting spirit is irrepressible.

Welcome to a lifetime of pain?  Indeed.

Flatbush Avenue : Flatbush Avenue is the Broadway of Brooklyn.  It slips from one neighborhood to another and another and another, from the Manhattan Bridge until it reaches Marine Parkway near Kings Plaza shopping center.  Brooklyn's other main roads, like Ocean Avenue, Linden Boulevard, Empire Boulevard, Utica Avenue, and Eastern Parkway, all have an end at Flatbush Avenue.  But Flatbush Avenue is more than a thoroughfare.  It's a place where people flock, either by choice, by economics, by culture, or just because.
