Same deal. Found object, half hour of playtime. This one particularly fascinated me as I had one of these "Kathy Walker" dolls before I could even walk--I remember looking up at that face, and I do remember walking along with her. Only mine was brunette and had that famously bristling hair. For those L Word fans, you'll note how this looks like Ivan unwrapped... For a slideshow click here.

Is it or is it not? Celebrity sightings are one thing, but mysterious sightings quite another. So, you tell me: is this guy, being filmed in Central Park last weekend, Michael Moore? I took the photo (one of the most fascinating aspects of the installations for me was how people were attempting to photograph and record themselves within the structure), but then, you can see he was clearly miffed at me and I pulled back. But then I thought, hm... You can just see the leg of the woman filming him, and behind her several cameras etc.

One day she went for a walk in the park and discovered that dozens of couples were getting married, all on the same day! Everyone was politely waiting their turn to pose in the best locations. There was some difficulty finding views without wedding parties in them! If you look close you'll notice that even the squirrels and robins were entertained... Click here for slideshow.

All the morning putting things in my house in order, and packing up glass to send into the country to my father, and books to my brother John, and then to my Lord Crew’s to dinner; and thence to Mr. Lewes Philip’s chamber, and there at noon with him for business, and received 80l. upon Jaspar Trice’s account, and so home with it, and so to my chamber for all this evening, and then to bed.

Here's the slideshow! Enjoy! It's a loop from Strawberry Fields, over the Bow Bridge, through the ramble, around the boathouse, by the fountain, and out again... The guy with the pole is one of the many Gate Pokers--their job is to unravel the material should it get wound around the gates--which it does. (They've thought of everything!) But some critics have frowned on the colour: a saffron, rather than a deeper Tibetan orange. And it is a bit weak...but stunning too, especially when the wind catches the fabric, or, as here, when the sun gets behind... Not sure what the animals think of it. The owl tree has had its branches cut so nowhere for the long ears to hide now.
This cat was wild...nothing like a cab on a cold afternoon, and this one had the dashboard thing all going on...

The Grease Trucks, Rutgers Campus, home of the "Fat Bitch" and other unmentionable sandwiches... This photo was from Halloween night a while back. Usually the crowd isn't as surprising as the sandwich names, which this week, have been covered up by duct tape.

"Ryman's aesthetic practice is further illuminated by his observation in the late 1960s that "there is never a question of what to paint, but only how to paint. The how of painting has always been the image—the end product."3 For his part he has "wanted to make a painting getting the paint across"—meaning getting paint literally across the surface and, more idiomatically, getting it across as an idea.4"
