NEW YORK, NEW YORK – This is a poor day for photographing and for photographs. New York is heavily overcast. The light is heavy, without any charm or grace. I’m rushing around to prepare for a trip to Oregon. While walking on the Upper East Side I saw this precursor to Halloween. It’s odd because the building is unoccupied; it has a number of building permits posted on it, as well as a stop work order. Carpenters with a childish bent?
