And On And On

Today was rain. Not shine. Brief shines actually. But one rarely gets accidentally caught in the shine. By midpoint in a wayward walk I was thoroughly caught in a mild shower. If nothing else, it did wonders for my hair.

Part of what’s emerged in this neighborhood series is the constant and unavoidable presence of tree limb and power line. By shooting mid-block I can generally avoid the traffic signs and other municipal detritus, but the American home’s insatiable appetite for energy denies freedom from the lightly curved black lines.

What strikes me here is the incredible uniformity of the primary home structures, albeit in varying shades of off-white, contrasted against the totally wide range of porch styles. Some of’em are hardly even in the same genus. Further down one’s even enclosed, evolved into a brown box on stilts.

NYC tomorrow & weekend, posting may be scant.
