Serra at Momenta

I saw a post for the Serra installation at momenta on greg.org.

I found the top nighttime image particularly striking (photograph from greg.org)

However, upon looking at it again, it doesn't have the 'enveloping' quality that I like in a lot of Serra's work
Such as his retrospective at MOMA last year -- which was, if anything better than all the reviews said it was.

Or his pieces at DIA Beacon (photograph from DIA)

Green Bicycle

Thanks to whoever did this green bicycle in Allston.


I pass it almost every day and I enjoy seeing it.

Staten Island

Last fall I chartered a fishing boat from si fishing (I would recommend him and recommend chartering a boat from someone licensed -- too many surveillance cameras in the area to do otherwise) to take some shots of "abandoned ships" in Staten Island -- .kmz file here.

I got some really nice shots, some of which used the Tiffen filters described previously


Some of which had some minor photoshop tweaks


and some of which oddly (for me) just worked as is

I was at Bukowski's in Cambridge the other day, and noticed that they had installed a nice urinal.

It made me remember a site I had visited a few years ago urinal.net, happily it is still around.

There's a lot of urinals on this site, some just noteworthy for their existence
but some are "true works of art" (whatever that means). My favorites are these at the Kohler Art Center.

This one by Clark Sorenson (slightly marred by its use of conventional/old school plumbing)

And then the reward for urinal with the best view
