Better Than Real Because It's Not.

(Sep 11) Some things are touchstones in one’s life. For each of us, these are different things.

pennsylvania station
First stop, arrival and re-departure

bright and blurry
Stepped outside the station and started adjusting my camera

the building that beat donald trump
Saw an old friend

tribeca beckons
Wandered downtown, a reminder of college nights watching the Honeymooners with friends.

knob creek, saw this factory on tv
I’ve never worked at or owned a bar. I’ve imagined it a lot though. Odd.

irony(n): the expression of one's meaning by using language that normally signifies the opposite, typically for humorous or emphatic effect
Nothing screams Amish like an electric sign in midtown Manhattan

This is all Walter White really wanted.

that was two lifetimes ago
I’ve had the Gorgeous George (it’s a burger)

To be continued…

(Aug 31) I suppose it is wrong to say nothing happened or got done, but it would be correct to say I didn’t get out much.

the spores!
There’s a lot of these mutants sprout in our back yard

I got older.

(July 31) Yawn. And just like that, July is gone.

vapor, not smoke
This is what happens when you put a camera from an air-conditioned room into a hot car.

walter white is coming soon!
Heisendog is ready

(Jun 19) Roosevelt Island is about to get a large dose of change. It’s going to be change they won’t like one bit. It’s inevitable though. Underscoring this, it’s a Bruce Ratner project now, who will co-own the buildings, which come with free land, courtesy of the city. I can’t help but think the city is poor at selling itself to have to give so much away to those who will directly profit from this initiative. The idea that anyone has gotten a piece of Roosevelt Island free just seems scandalous.

the one and only subway stop
Arrival. Deep underground.

hello, manhattan
It is a beautiful place, with a view of the east side.

currently in working order
Aside from the subway, and a bridge to Astoria, the tram is the only other way on and off the island.

goldwater hospital
And then on the other side of the tram bridge… you’re there already.

catch it before it's gone forever
Now you see it… soon you won’t.

chrysler building
A familiar sight

renwick smallpox hospital
The old, and falling down

chisel me here
The new and unfinished

cause of the biggest traffic jams in manhattan
The UN-United Nations

(Jun 10) This month has been difficult and frustrating, and for all that, so little has changed.

dog sign language
This means, rub my belly.

not getting any better looking, is he?
The proprietor of this establishment, glimpsed.

the gym is paying off
Rumors of Junior always looking unhappy disproved

what light, through yonder roadway breaks?
The heterochromia of the illuminations

note to self: try this again
The backlight is helpful
