Boat & Church Interior

Remember when you were in 2nd grade, and they'd take you out to look for things to stick together on a piece of construction paper. And you'd come back and glue leaves and twigs onto some paper and the teacher would say: oh, that's nice. And sometimes they'd hang it up on the bulletin board?

Yep. That's all this is. High tech blending techniques, but just looking around, now with a partly adult brain, for things that go together in some mysterious way. The boat was on the hudson river and shot from somewhere in Spanish Harlem - from a cemetery if I remember correctly. The church interior was in the Bronx - I think it was St. Raymond's.

Well, at any rate, I will admit that I picked the most banal thing to begin this collage experiment with - and it may not appeal to everyone, or anyone, but I actually like it as much as any of the more traditional things I've done in the past, and not so much for what it is - but for what the technique opens up with other subjects.

I have a couple of orders that have been sitting around while I got so infatuated with this curb thing; I will get them out today (apologies to all) and I have an idea for another collage of Central Park that I want to do.  The thing there is that I won't be able to just hop downstairs every time I find something is missing, so I'm going to plan it out a bit more, and I'm going to use - or at least I'm planning to use - the 'degree' readings that are on the ballhead of my tripod.  My idea, is to shoot a certain section of the park over the course of an entire day.  Beginning around dawn and ending up around dusk, possibly night.
