23 skidoo

23rd & broadway @ fifth avenue, 100 years ago

an amazing little film from the metropolitan museum's "street" exhibition. the corner of 23rd just east of the flatiron building, men's hats and women's skirts flying. for real, on film, then, now, always.



i've started to photograph sparrows and other small birds (mourning doves) whenever i see them, which is nearly everyday during the week as i walk to the subway or around town. i hear them before i see them - a sweet high-pitched plaintive sound. they seem to live in the bushes and play on the fences. this photo was made on washington square north, just west of university place.
