Better Than Real Because It's Not.

(Aug 1) The second half of my trip from downtown to Penn Station.

dog urinal
The suburban hydrants are all painted yellow. I like this better.

i love it not
Even the buildings want to be loved

birds are evil dinosaur progeny
How inviting

damaged, though
This undoubtedly is a Jim Power mosaic.

grace church
When these churches went up, they were probably the tallest things around. Today, they seem small indeed.

creepy, yo
Patriotism meets Halloween

this is what amazon.com eats
A relic that will doubtless soon be gone

get your super-expensive produce here!
Passing through the farmer’s market

it sure is shiny though
The statue of Andy Warhol for no apparent reason

no longer the tallest in the city though
Empire, revealed

city rats don't hang out and chill
What have we here?

i wonder who's behind it?
The hoax of the day

but it's cheap to feed
This faux rat probably ended the day stolen

purpleness
Then back to the land of ‘meh’

(Oct 29) No Halloween Parade (again). Maybe next year.

wet
Behind the windshield

flowers
Art?

or neither
Or litter?

And into October, my last month in Brooklyn for now…

steel drums
This guy wasn’t annoying. That’s pretty good praise in regard to subway musicians. In theory some entertainment down there should be a good thing, but really, it’s not.

billy
I’d been thinking about him again a lot, due to my impending move.

william
It really was been all about him for a long time.

zombie sign
This does not constitute proof that crazy sign person is not in fact, a zombie

smith st.
Smith St. and I go way back. I used to pick up shampoo for my boss at the salon 2 doors down back in another life.

yay for terrorist threat alerts
Since the subway system has been crawling with cops, it didn’t surprise me to see the mystery machine turned on at Union Square. I gather it sniffs the air for something, but that’s about all I know.

walnut log
Then back out to the sawmill for a day to turn this walnut log into boards

trimming or art?
This reminds me of this

walnut boards
Unfortunately a big part of the log had been ruined by carpenter ants

firemen
I finally got a good shot here on a swing through Park Slope.

September has been something to endure. And that’s being cheerful about it.

president st.
When the gate’s open, I step in for a few shots.

mural
I keep meaning to just ask someone if I can come in.

union st.
I’d like to get shots of all of it before I move.

union st.
Crazy Sign Person went into re-runs.

the marigolds of memory
I remember when summer meant marigolds

and so is the bank
Speaking of memory, the night depository is a relic now, right?

apple on the sidewalk
Returning from the bank in the early morning, I saw an apple on the sidewalk.

apples on the tree
I looked up.

water supply sampling station
Then I went out to Port Jefferson. I always walk to the LIRR now as well. My legs are cheaper and still more reliable than the subway.

raindrops on the train window
It rained. It was apropos.

train window on the raindrops
Wet. Scattered. Metaphor.

waterspout
Down the drain and on the street.

hiring soon!
Hot Pink. Not the ideal way to keep Victoria’s Secret.

(May 16) I needed to go for a walk.

a case of crabs
I was feeling crabby, but I had a better day than these guys.

whatever those signs say
I went to Chinatown.

though what you get for that...
Where you can still get a $5 haircut.

illusion
It’s a very interesting neighborhood, and I haven’t seen much of it yet.

i couldn't read a thing
I think this is the neighborhood signpost.

manhattan bridge
As usual, dusk was settling into evening.

demolition
This seemed to have captured everyone’s attention.

an ending
The Hong Kong Supermarket had burned down.
