Oooh, these rectangles remind me of the Mondrian painting that Sumanth and my mom and I saw at the MFA this afternoon!
Beautiful designs, both in the panes themselves and your arrangement of them within your own frame.
Hi Emily, After looking at this a while, I started seeing Mondrian too, that's nice. One benefit of Sally visiting is all the art exhibits we see! I might not have gone to the sculpture garden this spring but we had a great time (before it got hot). Tell her hi from me! And make her buy a computer, if you don't mind. love, sussahMorning Glenn, Thanks, another example of anonymous public art! These things do beautify the city, and so do the gorgeous crepe myrtles along Broadway which are vibrant right now. Of course these things are balanced out with some of the other scenery in the street, it's really pretty intense. Blogger is acting up today but I hope everybody goes over to see Parade! That is so fantastic. Talk about compassion of place. I couldn't enlarge it enough to see what it was for. see you later, sp
LOL, thanks for the comment on Parade!It was a gay pride parade held yesterday afternoon, only they didn't seem to tell teh gays, so the only people around were a gaggle of lesbians who were intent on riding on either one of the only two floats at hand.They started late - and in a cloudburst! - so that by the time they had reached Armstrong Park, the police detail accompanying them told them they were on their own as the officers' job was done and they had crimes to manage. The ladies had to all dismount and make their meandering ways back to wherever they had left their pickup trucks.
Hi Glenn, This event, and your description of it, sound like they came directly out of A Confederacy of Dunces. Only they didn't have the SUVs in the sixties. And you made me LOL!! I thought it might have been an old funeral in the pouring rain. thanks, sp
I like this one too, Sussah. Very geometrical. It reminds me of a style that seemed common in the late 60s early 70s for various churches and related buildings in Canada (and probably the US)--esp. the "abstract" stained glass. (Just working from memory, you understand--not knowledge!)
Hi Rick, Thanks very much! I think this may be from that era too. It's just across the street from our campus (Tulane University). The neighborhood has a high density population and a lot of cars parked along both sides of the street, a little claustrophobic for me. We used to live up there but we've been in Gentilly for quite some time now. Much more to my liking, very traditional little houses with private back yards. About 95% are occupied (5 years after Katrina). By and large the neighborhood is very pretty. sp
