Devorah is my photographic inspiration for today. Her photos of the city we both call home remind me to stop and look up, really up. And over. And down. Just look.
I’m embarrassed often to take out my camera, least I be mistaken a tourist or something. (Well, that and my desire to take photos of trains and other bits of infrastructure which these days can be difficult to do. But I don’t want to go there tonight.)
For example, one morning last week some water was gurgling out of the side walk near the Croton Distributing Reservoir, er sorry, Bryant Park. ;) Did I step out of the river of people to take a photo? No. I walked to the office as if the buildings and life around me were invisible.
I lost my chance. The next day found that stretch of concrete replaced by a steel plate.
Devorah, thank you for the inspiration. Please don’t stop.
