New Art, New Ideas

This is a shot from the balcony of the New Museum of Contemporary Art. Its mission statement is new art new ideas. I enjoyed the architecture more than its current exhibition, Unmonumental, which displays in four categories objects, collage, sounds and montage-internet.

I agree with Woody Allen on that Black & White is the best when it comes to capturing Manhattan's true spirit.

Hello stranger!
It feels like forever...I just read all of your March entries in one sitting and experienced a "literary brain-freeze"; the intellectual equivalent of drinking too much soda, too fast, when you're too thirsty...and basically, that is what happens when I don't stop by here for so long!

I feel like you have such a knack for selecting interesting topics and material to discuss...I can see you teaching. Anyhoo, the last 4 post are my favorites, especially the yada yada and I absolutely LOVE this NY picture. I also agree with you and Woody about NYC best reflected in B&W; timeless.

Thanks for the fabulous posts and for always keeping it interesting!

You are flattering me! I was busy with stupid stuff, but I hope to have a long chat with you soon, before the New Year's.

Dear Anonymous
I am glad you liked the photo; I hope your discovery don't make you change your mind.

Thanks! to be honest it was more the amazing view of that balcony rather than my photography.
