  1. I love all the detail in the third photo. Canal Street, the highway markers, and movement. Gorgeous.

    1. thanks nene, and i've even withdrawn the excerpt. it seems i have a difficult time bearing my interference with photographs of late. i think i'll try to keep me brief. instead i want to see what there is to see...

    1. each time i read this short comment i smile hard with your exuberance. yes! a real town! real life! it's astounding, isn't it? i was so excited to see her and her dog. she was gulping from a big slurp while walking in the cold. i was waiting in the car while james bought doughnuts. she seemed such a revelation to me. it all did, the incredible complexity of being mired in such ordinary things))

  5. I don't know why, but I look at the image of the town and think: what a mess we make of our world. And then I look at the shot of the woman walking her dog and I think: what joy we find in our world!
