untitled (the ramp) 2007

This is a view of the hole, taken from a chink in the fabric of the temporary Vesey Street bridge late last night, although it looked to me more like the construction site of a moon base, especially since there were no human figures visible, and no sound. The starry night effect in the left background is produced by the work lights on the Deutsche Bank Building which is slowly being demolished.

Didn't anybody notice this triangular lot when these two buildings were going up?

This had almost nothing to do with the Manhattan Mini Storage advertising campaign, and almost everything to do with bold and angled lines - and the English bond.




I shot these images while crossing through our courtyard garden on my way to the market late this afternoon.







I do think that until you've visited the high prairie you don't fully understand the term, "Big Sky Country". I've been to Montana several times, and I understand. But today I live in a Manhattan canyon, so I also understand how much of a difference even a slightly more low-rise neighborhood can make.

When you finally surface after a ride on the L to Williamsburg or beyond the world always looks very different, not least because of the huge importance the sky assumes when buildings are only two or three stories tall.

When I was very young most of the other kids pretended they could fly, but I just couldn't get very excited about a Superman cape. In the summer, if I wasn't on my bike, I would often lie on the lawn and imagine myself climbing through the clouds, especially when they looked as sturdy as these do.

These pictures were grabbed early in the evening yesterday after Barry and I emerged at the Morgan stop (which is really Bushwick) to make the opening at Pocket Utopia.

For those who might be wondering, the wavy line dangling from the top of the fourth picture is a loose telephone cable. I really liked its intervention there, and I would have tried to get it into focus, but I didn't want to make Barry wait while I dealt with it.
