Works to Live By #7

Standard Billboard Painter New York City, New York Ernst Haas 1952

I saw this on Luminous-Lint today. Haas took this the same year I was born. He was a great black and white photographer but also a pioneer in color photography. I do believe this image has held up well over the years; certainly better than I have. I love the colors and shapes and the fact that it looks like a total abstract image–at first.
