The Morning Perusal

Only in Manhattan is the NYTimes your go-to source for local happenings. Where the arts section actually refers to nearby happenings, and not just a survey of neat events that are happening in some far off land. And it’s wonderful with toast and black coffee.

I have yet to pin down what it is about this image that resonates so strongly with me. Her being small in the frame and smooshed to the side is helping, especially with her downward gaze being met by the tilt of the newspaper.

Also there’s the nice sharp geometries throughout – the highlights on the stovetop, looming dark frames at back, etc…

Back in Boston now.
