Luddite, Inc.

Lud·dite - noun :

1. Any of a group of British workers who between 1811 and 1816 rioted and destroyed laborsaving textile machinery in the belief that such machinery would diminish employment.
2. One who opposes technical or technological change
3. Store, disguised as a museum, of amazing curiosities and well worn artifacts located at 27 Broadway, in the shadow of the Williamsburg Bridge.

I fall in love a little bit with any place (or person) that gives me the feeling of being transported to another world or era, and lets me believe in it, wholly.   Walking into Luddite feels like finding a hidden attic of that long lost, very interesting relative - you know the one that was a pioneer and survived the war and was a jazz musician and raised 12 children and made due with basically nothing.  That makes me happy and inspires photos.
