A view of New York City from the Jewel
Watch while we love
and watch while we fall
in love we watch each other
and hold one another
and look for a future
that is limitless
but not flawless
that is full of surprises
that are unavoidable
and you’ll see
Sometimes I look at a photo and make up a poem on the spot…all I do is watch.
Today at Mary Mitchell we celebrated Valentine’s Day.
A lot of the children were quite when Miss Josefina, who is Dominican, explained to them that Valentine’s Day is not only about love between a woman and a man but is also about celebrating your friends. In the Dominican Republic the term they use on Valentine’s Day is el dia del amor y la amistad. She said in DR it’s more about friendship.
Here is a photo I took last year of a group of friends who happen to be in the right place at the right time.
They are posing in the Bronx in the West Farms Area near the 2 and 5 train-station. The art work is a sculpture done by Gabriel Salazar.
Bambi, a photographer and instructor for the International Center of Photography shows off silk-screen art done by a Japanese artist in Brooklyn. I thought it was extra cool that she got the print done on a plaid shirt rather than a plain white tee.
If you look at the whale closely, there is a shape of a man.
