Due to budget cuts, as of the current issue of City Paper Charles Steck will no longer be taking the photos for my column, Cheap Seats. He had worked with City Paper as a freelance photographer since the late 1980s, and shot pretty much everybody I’ve written about for the last 11 years.

The photo Charles took of Stead Park’s resident free-throw shooter Robert Triolo in 2006 is as good as good gets.

I’ve been thinking about that shot a lot this week.
