William W. Heffner, friend and A Life’s Work’s secret weapon (many of the links and photos on the ALW Facebook page are posted by Bill) sent me some photos he took with his tourist eyes.
On a warm summer night leisurely walking home I came across this tableau and it just struck me to be part Greek tragedy, part Peter Paul Rubens, with a whole lot of Twilight Zone thrown in for good measure. I just took them on my phone, and at first glance you’d never know they were color photographs — only a neon sign in some of them betrays that. This window is the complete opposite of what we expect: color, fashion, something new and exciting.
I love these photos. In addition to Peter paul Rubens and the Twilight Zone, they remind me of a Roxy Music cover (or several), and to me, that’s a winning combination.
Send me a photo of something in the place you live, taken with your tourist eyes, and I’ll put it on the blog [if you want], and I’ll send you an origami crane. You can attach it to an email:
