Lovers with a Watcher

Lovers

 

Watch while we love

and watch while we fall

in love we watch each other

and hold one another

and look for a future

together

that is limitless

but not flawless

that is full of surprises

that are unavoidable

watch

and you’ll see

 

 

Sometimes I look at a photo and make up a poem on the spot…all I do is watch.

Best Friends

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.

Stickers

 

 

“Boy, I don’t want all those stickers on Me!”

Bambi

 

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.
