New York, New York
This collage of an imagined Manhattan skyline was created from a Playbill from the Shubert Theatre for the show Crazy for You, which we saw on a visit to New York in 1993. I originally posted it in January 2015 just before our last New York visit and early in my 365 day blogging challenge that year. You can see the full image here on Day 26.
For today’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Grid, Michelle asks us to “…take the humble grid out of the shadows, and make it the star.” After seeing Leanne Cole’s wonderful photo homage to New York yesterday and Vladimir Brezina’s photos of New York today, it was out to the studio and the creation of an imagined grid of the wonder that is New York. As you can see it is very much a work in progress but good things may come of it I think.

Auguste Rodin’s Eternal Spring is the perfect image on Valentine’s Day for lovers everywhere.
From a photograph I took during our visit to New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art
last Sunday, together with the Museum’s description.
“The human body is, above all, the mirror of the soul, and from the soul comes its greatest beauty.”
Auguste Rodin, from Rodin on Art, Horizon Press, 1971
No day shall erase you from the memory of time…Virgil
This quote from Virgil, which I posted on thechangingpalette three days ago, is displayed in the hall of the 9/11 Memorial Museum. It seems appropriate to post it once again to accompany today’s images.
