NEW YORK, NEW YORK – Today was packed with activities. Meetings in the morning, a business lunch and cooking all afternoon for a dinner party at home. I was planning on getting my picture for the day at dinner, but realized after the last guest had left that I had gotten so involved in conversations that I hadn’t picked up a camera. 11:00 PM and no picture. I’ve vowed never to post a picture of our dog, so that’s out. I tried shooting out the window at the dark city scape without much success. Finally I shot a pair of images on our wall by Penny Umbrico – blown up images from a curtain catalogue. Here’s a link to Penny’s work: Penelope Umbrico
NEW YORK, NEW YORK – Well here we are back at Tom Sach’s statue, Hello Kitty, in the sculpture garden at Lever House. This is a real urban oasis As I’ve noted elsewhere Hello Kitty is a Japanese toy character owned by Sanrio. Here’s a link: Sanrio
WARREN, CONNECTICUT – Emmet Gowin, Nancy, Danville Virginia, 1969. Nancy is now 47 or so – probably just starting to experience hot flashes. The physics of how photos freeze time is well understood, but odd, nonetheless.
NEW YORK, NEW YORK – This is a daily photo blog. I’m posting one image each day from now until I run out of space on my server. The “each day” refers to when the photograph is taken. Uploads will happen whenever I have the time.
On October 16 I had a meeting in the Wall Street area. Afterwords I wandered in the rain over to One Chase Manhattan Plaza. Still an impressive urban space even though the bank is no longer an independent entity. There is a Jean Dubuffet sculpture called “Four Trees” – a half dozen tourists were hanging around it snapping with their iPhones.
