A Trip Across the Waters

My slide away from words more and more into photography continues.

Dave Lutz

Good Buddy David–who has a greater knowledge and a deeper appreciation of our city than anyone else I know–took me on a walk through the epitome of new construction and traffic noise, Long Island City. Our mission: to see how much of David’s Human Enrichment (aka, quality of life) suggestions for the area had been rejected by the Ultimate Powers. What we found delighted my shutterbug aspect if not his dreams.

Graffiti Realismo or something else?

To be sure the visit concluded with an hour or so spent in one of the many foin Irish bars in LIC: coffee for David and for me Bushmills Black Bush. A good time was had by both.

    Great pictures. But the bike math is too complicated for me.I hope the guy’s daughter doesn’t get expelled for non-payment of her school fees.

    You do make Long Island City look nice. But with my luck, the frog would be gone by the time I got there.
