“So often
We are
Missing

Out on it—
Ill-equipped
To imagine

The day any
Different than
We hoped it

Might be…”

Alex Lemon, from “Marooning,” in The Wish Book (Milkweed Editions, 2014)

I shot these through the window scrim in our city art museum. In a room of wall-sized, technicolor abstractions, these street scenes caught my eye. Photographing out the window in favor of gawking at the art caught the eye of security, and I thought I might be asked to leave. I do like abstract expressionism, I explained in my defense, but it’s so sunny outside. The distortions in the images, minimally edited (he said in self-defense), remind me at newsprint halftone under a loupe as I was, and these subjects were, in what might or might not have been a rather panoptic moment.

“Taxi” appeared as part of a recent feature post of my work on Creative Thresholds, an arts and literature journal. Please visit and show your support for this fine journal and their hard work. Thanks.
