Tribeca, Ericsson Place

Mary Sargent © 2006

This is Ericsson Place on the other side, the north side. I’m beginning to wonder if I got this right; there seems to be too much going on for one little one-block street. Next time I’m down there, I’ll double check. In the meantime, here’s the last Ericsson Place shot. I have to laugh every time I look at it. But you won't think it's funny unless you enlarge it. Just click

And this is an update of the map posted at the beginning of this blog, which shows (the update shows) the barely detectable changes since I renewed my ambition. No matter. I have time.

This one is quite beautiful. It's very finely wrought. I see so much of your painting in some of these last photographs.

I love the varied red tones and pale cobbles. The 50/50 split of horizontal to vertical. Ghostly vehicle. And the very amusing tree grounding it all. I think it just all works.

Hi, Mary.
Thanks for leaving your kind comments at my blog. I enjoy photographing machinery out of context.

The project I had abandoned was similar to what you have been doing. I was shooting street scenes around my city, but I wasn't capturing that "perfect moment in time". After looking at your images, I realized that my perspective and expectations on the project was misguided. I wasn't seeing that each street or neighbourhood is unique in its own right, and this is what you capture so well.

Altho you might find amusing the car making a fast retreat, what about the demon's face 'carved' in the tree trunk???
