At left we have a downhill skier with the message: “MORE snow dreams, please,” with an a promotional offer for the Killington ski area in Vermont. At right, we have an empty ad panel […]

Not Warhol’s Soup Cans
As an artist and former art history student, it’s hard to see a Campbell’s Soup Can without thinking of Andy Warhol. However, when I saw this crushed Campbell’s Soup Can laying in the street in Glen Ridge (NJ) below left, I wanted to photograph my own version of a Campbell’s Soup Can. Then, just for […]

Celebrating UFOs
There’s an interesting exhibition opening tomorrow at Andrew Edlin Gallery titled “April 14, 1561.” The date refers to an unusual event that occurred that day in Nuremberg, Germany: residents of the city saw what they described as an aerial battle, observing hundreds of spheres, cylinders and other odd-shaped objects that moved erratically overhead in the […]

It’s that time of the year for the Abominable Snowman
My guess is that the Abominable Snowman makes himself scarce in the New York City metro area during most of the year, but come December each year, he has a calling as a fashion model on Madison Avenue. I’m sorry to say I didn’t notice the name of the store, but here he is this […]

Cabinet furniture suggesting a NYC skyscraper
I saw this maple and bakelite (a type of plastic) cabinet by Paul T. Frankl at The Met this past weekend, and while I like it a lot as a beautiful piece of furnture, I also like it as an early 20th Century homage to skyscrapers. Despite being made as furniture, it does have a […]

Wear some Keith Haring
I walked by a store on Madison Avenue in NYC the other day, and some Keith Haring clothing in the store window caught my eye. I like this shirt, but it looks like it’s only made for women, so I guess I’m out of luck. The store is Alice + Olivia, and their Keith Haring […]

A man takes his half-mannequin for a walk
A man takes his half-mannequin for a walk … it almost sounds like the set-up for the punch line of a joke, but I guess I don’t have a punch line for this photo. I just noticed this guy walking down 10th Avenue in NYC the other day and thought it made for an interesting […]

Toothbrush street art
Did you brush your teeth this morning? If not, there’s a pair of oversize toothbrushes attached to a wall on the corner of 10th Avenue and 28th Street in New York City. While there was no information about these street art pieces at this location, from what I can gather online, it’s part of a […]
