POTD: The Real Deal

The Real Deal
New York, New York
2017

Restaurants in a faux old-fashioned diner style are very common these days. In New York City, it’s still pretty easy to find one that’s actually authentic (in the sense that it’s been around since the genre’s original heydays).

POTD: Northern Lights Boogie

Northern Lights Boogie
Bozeman, Montana
2017

Perhaps I should have called this the $899 dance as the image is comprised of two of the photographs I took before falling and trashing my lens on my recent canyon hike and I imagine I looked much like these figures as I was trying to keep my footing.

POTD: Fragment of Youth

Fragment of Youth
New York, New York
2017

I really like this elegant sculpture of a young man that actually seems enhanced and not ruined by the fact that it is missing its top half. Thus I’m embarrassed to say that the title that first came to mind for this image was “half-faced”; you know, as in not two-faced or shi*-faced but half-faced. Sometimes even when it seems like my mind wants to be operating in tune with a more sophisticated aesthetic, it seems to get derailed by my decidedly unsophisticated juvenile sense of humor.

POTD: Moon Dance

Moon Dance
New York, New York

I don’t know if this is supposed to depict the moon (likely not) or what the entire carved panel in the Egyptian exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art actually looks like. I’m sure I noticed at the time but as happens to me at times,  I was so drawn to this detail I neglected to photograph the whole thing. Perhaps it’s better that way. It tells a unique story when taken out of the larger context.
