(Apr 27) It is now undeniably spring. And it becomes time to ponder the reasons why I am still here.

too familiar
Familiar turf.

i'd never really noticed this before
Though I still have not seen it all

hundreds of thousands? millions?
I wonder how many times people have walked past this sign.

unless the building goes away *cough*
This will now always look the same, every time.

anything for a buck, yo
Disney, stayin classy.

i don't care if worsener is not a word
Beer. The cause of, and worsener of problems.

(Jul 9) To kill some time before dinner with Preed, I finally returned to Roosevelt Island.

modern dinosaur
Out on Long Island, What is this scary thing?

awaiting a hotel no one wants
Destruction complete

its residents shipped off to a vastly suckier location
Over to Roosevelt Island, the shell of Coler-Goldwater Hospital

a total ghost town
Typical of work done by large contractors,

hurry up and do nothing
It’s the middle of the day, and no work in sight taking place

i saw a total of *one* vehicle behind the fence
This is why it’s going to take years,

what's the hurry, right?
Everything takes forever when you’re not actually doing anything.

cheaper than doing the right thing though
All this blocked off for the convenience of the construction that’s not taking place

(Jun 16) I have been busy. Busy is neither good nor bad, just busy.

the skeletal remains of signs
So many things nailed to this pole …. that absolutely no one cared about.

need to change the settings
This is not at all what I expected when I decided to shoot this scene

this is more like it
Because, it was dark outside

stairs noir
Now this, is what I was looking for

what was is gone
This view will never be the same

a hotel is coming
Not because of the demolition and coming construction

we miss you, howard
But because the man whose office this was for 30 years has died.

(May 25) I don’t know where this month went. It seems to have been largely consumed by drama in the house. The housemate with the screaming, crying, children will be gone June 1. Those kids are doomed. Doomed. Even their father has given up on them already and they’re only seven and eight.

employment walk of shame
Junior got fired

power plant exhaust
Port Jefferson smokestacks

new job
This time, Junior didn’t get canned.

this is what spoiled looks like
Romeo continues to lead a hard life

fulton st.
Back in one of the most familiar places

It’s not as tall as the Twin Towers, unless you count the oversized pole on the roof. It’s not even going to be the tallest in the city. But finally, that’s as tall as it’s going to get, and the pole is on the roof.

(Apr 25) You thought March was over. We lied. But April too. Honest!

walking through the ruins of a grand building
Peeking at the past

it's taking forever
Slowly. Oh so very slowly.

why am i in east setauket at dawn?
Moon at dawn

April started with reality TV stars in my midst

costco meat (mostly)
What’s $100 of meat look like

romeo romedoze
The warm has arrived

time marches on more quickly than construction has on the wtc site
Does it look like it changed any since the one above?

i'm about to elevate my day
This way up
