5-24-13 – Weekly Photo Challenge: In The Background

“What I’m proposing, to myself and other people, is what I often call the tourist attitude – that you act as though you’ve never been there before. So that you’re not supposed to know anything about it. If you really get down to brass tacks, we have never been anywhere before.”

John Cage

This week’s Photo Challenge is In The Background.

In honor of Mr. Cage ( I am reading Kay Larson’s book: Where The Heart Beats – John Cage, Zen Buddhism and the Inner Life of Artists), I pulled out the first ten “self portraits” I found in the archives, printed them, shuffled them, split them into two piles, and labeled each of them 1-5 and then rolled a pair of dice, one for each pile. If a six came up there would be no picture from that pile. If both die came up six, this would be the first Quotidian Hudson without a picture.  As it occurred, that did not happen.
