Picnic by the Coal Pier: White Hot



PHOTOGRAPHER'S JOURNAL:  To some of us this is an assault, its transience unsettling. For others, it is merely the natural expression of the chaos of our time.  As art, it challenges the art of collectable commodities out of which we have built our culture.  As political statement, it challenges law and exalts chaos.  Scrawled in endless repetition on our buildings and on our buses and subways it is an irritant and a challenge meant to offend. Here, beyond the chain link fence in the people's park, for good and or ill, it is the law.

In your eyes and hands, Ted, it is a "law" that knows no bounds. One could spend a lifetime absorbed in this kind of art!

You continue to encourage my bad habits. Thank you.
