Murray Hill, Third Avenue Between 28th and 27th

I'm in too much of a hurry tonight; I just posted a photograph and almost immediately deleted it. I hope no one saw it. This one I think is safe. I just feel calm looking at it. I took a lunch time walk today, down Third Avenue from 32nd to 26th and across 26th to Park Avenue South where I work. Third Avenue generally not so inspiring but this one is nice, I think.

Yes, this is very calming. I love the reflective white at the middle of the photograph (the truck). In the small version of the photo, the white rectangle seems like an abstract shape and repeats the rectangle (border) of the picture. But not exactly - I like that it is slightly skewed downward to the right.In the small version, the white seems relatively blank which I like (sort of like in meditation, finding a calm in the middle of everything). In the large version, you can nearly feel the breeze as the trees draw their shadows on the white truck. But the large version for me has another aspect that reminds me of the movie Blowup. What is happening at the front of the truck??? The van on the right must have backed up with its back door already raised, because it is too close to the truck to allow the door to be lowered. There doesn't seem to be any room for the front tires of the truck. Someone is there, maybe changing a tire?? But then why is the back of the truck left open. The mystery deepens. I'm waiting for the full movie version.

What an interesting reminder your photos offer: that our world is made up of color and shapes. I know we learned some of this in kindergarten, but this is more fun...

I saw the one you later deleted! Actually, I didn't, and do not feel much response to this one (I never liked Turkish food, and still feel for the Armenians). I am commenting mainly because I love playing around with my identity (so easy to change, unlike one's real identity).
