7-26-13 The Weekly Photo Challenge – (New Millennium Edition)

So here we go, post #1001!

I was going to do the river but I will have a lot of those over the next two days as Katherine is doing the 10th Annual Great Newburgh to Beacon Hudson River Swim swim tomorrow!

The weekly photo challenge is: Masterpiece.

As it happens before I knew that the challenge was masterpiece, I spent part of the afternoon wandering around a masterpiece which is filled at the moment with a masterwork. I had been meaning to go to the Cathedral Church of St JohnThe Divine for several months to see Jane Alexander’s installation: Surveys (from the Cape of Good Hope) since I first read about it in April. It closes on Monday so I thought I had better get my rear in gear and go.  FYI: This Jane Alexander is not the famous US actress and head of the NEA but the famous South African artist. Her work is challenging to begin with but seen in this context is perhaps even more powerful.

A brief (very) tour…

As always, links to a few other views I enjoyed. Sadly there is not enough time to see all the viewpoints…

However before we get there, I was trolling the internet last night and came upon what I feel is a musical pop song masterpiece. Now first off you must know that I hate the musical Evita and  loathe the song Don’t Cry For Me Argentina so imagine my surprise when I heard this version and said: “damn that is good”…

  4. That must have been quite the experience … love the first shot!
    Sinéad O’Connor’s voice is haunting. MTV played that ‘Nothing compares to you’ video ad nauseam in the late 80’s. Sometimes you get surprised, like you did, with her and that song. I once heard ‘Danny Boy’ with Marian Faithful, and that was certainly different..

  8. Sinead O’Connor never disappoints! And the art installation is provocative. Thank you for sharing it–and determining which Jane Alexander we were talking about. I immediately wondered!
