06-15-15 Double Your Pleasure Or At Least Your Fun

While I waited for a few students from the ICP Borough Walk through Brooklyn Heights and Brooklyn Bridge Park to meet us at Jane’s Carousel, I thought I would play with some double exposures at bride central – the boardwalk in front of the carousel. I was there for about 45 minutes and saw 5 wedding dresses with groom tux accompaniment and three engagement shoots happening…in a town this big you would think…

Nah, it is a pretty place.

7-19-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Containers

From “Don’t judge a book by its cover” to “Don’t look at the jug, but at what it contains” (an old Rabbinic saying), we’re constantly taught that the contents of things are more important than the vessels, wrappers, and boxes that hold them in place. This week, let’s give outer shells their due and focus our lenses on things that contain other things.

Ben Huberman – The Daily Post

Since wrappers are included in the definition I feel well within bounds with these two containers.

I walked through Central Park yesterday on my way to see the Garry Winogrand exhibit at The Met. I will have more to say about that another day. On my way to the Met I came across this scene.

Here, the packaging is exactly the same idea but the wrappings are so very different. Do they tell us any truth about what they contain?

Does the way we see it make a difference in our view of the packaging?

Apropos of nothing: This was Abigail’s favorite song when she was three years old…
