Masters of American Art

The Biennial exhibit at the Whitney Museum of American Art in NY is winding down its summer 2019 run. Here is a little sample of the treasures on display, three of the artists most renowned in America's short history as a nation: Andrew Wyeth, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Edward Hopper. Others are here on display too, like Andy Warhol and several contemporary artists using all types of media.

Here is an introduction from the museum, on the wall of this particular gallery full of gems, beginning with Wyeth:

"In 1942 Andrew Wyeth found a dead crow near his home in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, and brought it to his studio to sketch. He later painted the bird as if it were still lying in a winter field, and evocative choice given the mounting casualties in the war then convulsing Europe....

This gallery presents works that complicate our understanding of the natural world and how artists employ nature to explore human emotions, myths, fantasies, and politics....

Georgia O'Keeffe, whose work is the focus of this gallery, looked to nature and its infinite details to enumerate the complexities of the self and the precariousness of both bodies and landscapes."

More to come, here, there, & everywhere. As I can't make an album "here" (titles, descriptions, etc.), I should say that the three here are - (displaying largest to me, but maybe it varies) : Edward Hopper's Railroad Sunset (1929); Winter Fields (1942, with the dead crow, as described above) by Andrew Wyeth, and one from the series by Georgia O'Keeffe, Flower Abstraction (1924)

Chelsea Guitars

At the Hotel Chelsea

I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
You were famous, your heart was a legend
You told me again you preferred handsome men
But for me you would make an exception
And clenching your fist for the ones like us
Who are oppressed by the figures of beauty
You fixed yourself, you said, "Well never mind,
We are ugly but we have the music"

Chelsea Hotel: Leonard Cohen

Bevy of Birds on Broadway

One is an American Bittern (public art work), quite literally "On Broadway" - on New York's Upper West Side, near Zabar's.

The real (living) bird here is much smaller than the heron-sized bittern, and seems to be a native New Yorker bird doing its thing:
Pizza pizza!

I've been curious about this little guy; I've seen many now that I try to be more aware of birds. It's not quite a wren or sparrow.
As it turns out, it is not even a native New Yorker! In fact it is classified as an "invasive species". (Come here to eat our pizza, eh?)
I'm still learning #ornithology. :)) So I finally noticed I had no idea what this little iridescent thing is, everywhere, scurrying about...

And I've just now learned definitively: this is a European Starling in its iridescent summer plumage (like a glossy ibis!).

Who knew? O.K. then... thinking the Benson version would do nicely. After a long day, Cue up a mellow song and take a little walk....

On Broadway....

Rock and Roll History - Quiz # 5


A change from guitars, but equally legendary in rock & roll history.
On display this summer (2019) at #NYC 's #MetMuseum exhibit: #Playitloud !

Whose gear is this, and what is it? What band famously took this sound into mainstream rock music? With what song?

Medium and Message (Times Square, NYC)


Is this really a thing, FB? ("Anti-hemp censorship policy?")

I absolutely see the same trolling-up of U.S. politics as in 2016, for sure. But zero about hemp politics amid the buzz.
I'd rather see billboards focused on the real crisis - the struggle for the soul of what's left of America! No, strike that...
TImes Square displays seem much more pleasant with animated M&M's and Kinky Boots posters. Real fantasy. Not fake reality.

Anyhow... One glimpse of Times Square. It can be overwhelming, &/or energizing.

Joni Mitchell - Tributes at 75

This is Joni Mitchell's Ibanez arch top guitar, George Benson Signature Model - used in 1979 live album Shadows and Light and also on the Refuge World Tour (1983).

Reminded of her recent 75th birthday tributes, as tonight U.S. Public Television is (re)broadcasting a tribute to towering figure of 60's/70's music, her angelic voice coupled with poetic and compositional brilliance. So nice to see her still with us and appearing in a better state than has been seen/reported recently.

The exhibit had drawn some scrutiny about the relatively limited space afforded to the women pioneers of rock. There is some representation here, and certainly Joni Mitchell is one who deserves acclaim. Joan Jet's guitar is here too, Lady Gaga's piano, a few other icons (but not Joplin, or many others who deserve historical recognition). Still, for one traveling exhibit, borrowing from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's collection, and personal collections and estates of the rock legends, well... the exhibit is massive, and rocks!

Photo is mine. ( #playitloud exhibit at the #metmuseum #NYC #Summer2019)

Under a Starry New York Night
(NYC Blackout, July 13, 2019)

Courtesy of power failure/blackout and a cloudless night.
One more here, from my post-event quest to identify some of what I saw on this rare night of seeing night-sky in NYC.

Just as I have more or less settled on believing -from several skywatch reports and charts that I could see without owning an app - I was looking at an unusually bright Saturn and Jupiter, in addition to near-full moon. While 90% of my shots - hand-held, no tripod, near or total darkness - were blurry or too dark, happily 10% (of a bunch) turned out, well, at least "interesting". Including this.

Turns out there may be much more here than moon, Jupiter, Saturn (though I still can't solidly show the two planets in proper position relative to me, moon, and each other). For example, there are surely some distant stars here, but also one red dot which did not move at all, so not an airplane. (The 2nd dot here I don't see in other images, so maybe that's a plane - or not.)

So here's my take-away shot, the clearest I have of the sky and foreground too (I must have used some flat surface like a news stand as a monopod). All sorts of things. Not the best shot here of Saturn (I have a better one, crisp and clear, but still small, as I was using a high-speed wide-angle lens for the street shots). And the moon is hidden here (but popping through in 3D!) from its path and mine (moon constantly changed, while Saturn stuck close by). But.... "Context and perspective"

I'm standing here directly in front of Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center, on 13th July (night of the blackout), at 9:56PM (21:56) EST/New York, under Northern sky, facing SouthEast.

Any astronomy buffs who can get a chart of what we're seeing here??

Meanwhile, I put together a sampler page of Blackout 2019 images @ http://www.fenichel.com/blackout19.shtml

Light Amid Darkness (Color & Natural/Gyro Light)


A little oasis of both light and light dining, near Lincoln Center (NYC) during the recent power failure/"blackout" 13 July 2019.

I would love any feedback - be it personal reaction or photography-specific. One is shot in Black & White (Acros/Fujifilm) and one is Fujifilm Provia emulation, both at very high ISO/ASA obviously, as the city was pitch black here, other than food carts, emergency vehicles, and headlights of cars. (Plus on a smaller scale, people had flashlights and a few had lights strapped to their heads; walking was hazardous.)

Anyone have a preference? Just curious....

OhTaxi?!


The scene outside a subway station in New York's Upper West Side, during this past Saturday's power failure, which impacted many plans - cancelled shows, loss of A/C, elevators, and lack of traffic lights and street lights for starters. Add sirens and full moon, stir. Spooky.

The title is derivative of one I used with a favorite image from Stockholm. It was the title on a collection page of Google +.
Just seemed to fit the scene somehow. So that image is below, and this is the link to the web page and some other favorite images.

Oh waiter?!

BLACKOUT IN NEW YORK!! Underway, mid-town Manhattan for past 30-40 mins.


At least from 71st St south to 40's.
Train stations, stores, elevators, air conditionerrs, television stations too, maybe ...

1000's without A/C, power, people in streets wondering what's happening. Sirens... ugh... Triggers and memories...

Central Park Pond


As fate had it, I just stumbled upon this favorite image which I've never posted before - from 2008 - and on this laptop computer which wasn't even born then. Eh. One of those virtual things. (Truly I don't know how this image traveled, but still... first time posting.)

Now, some "here" may have heard me gripe about how this view from the rocks is/was one of my favorite views anywhere, my beloved Central Park looking over the pond at "the wall" of mid-town Manhattan, and sky.

But no more. Now there are some ghastly ugly rectangular money machines sticking up and destroying the symmetry and sky.

So I guess the moral is that it's sometimes wise to "take a picture" while it lasts.

More classic and new images of NYC on my home pond, to which I've been adding & updating post G+, @ www.fenichel.com/NYNY.shtml

The Vessel


"So I was trying to classify this (for the few places using tags effectively) ..." This is THE new tourist/local attraction in #NYC at the moment.
It is art. It is free. It is hyped. You can climb 1000s of stairs in many directions. As has been pointed out - by @[email protected] - and I agree, it was a huge expenditure with limited apparent impact. Well, I see lines and it is literally "crowded on the High Line" for much of it. Still...

The Vessel is in this new section called "The Spur", where this multi-level thing with crowds and ticket-tackers compete with a circus tent where CNN is giving away promotional things (popcorn on Sunday) I agree with the reviews suggesting a bit of opulence. But there are some photo ops.

Insert Here: Sure wish I could edit. (sigh) But imagine, bcs I'll find this and add it as a comment bcs I'm not imagining it - I took a photo of a wonderful sign separating out the Hudson Yards/Spur from the main HighLine. (Hint: Follow one for the money, one for the show...) Highline still has quiet spots but is also now very popular. Not bad, and in many ways good for everyone, visitors to New York and locals out for a respite.

Spur of the Moment


Now begins the first summer season for the newest (and last) section of preserved rail tracks-turned-greenery: The HighLine. The HighLine has been around since 2014, and before that it was a crumbling elevated rail line last used around 1980. Serving "the meat packing district".

Over the past 5 years HighLine has become an ever-bigger draw for both New Yorkers and tourists, with new restaurants and luxury condos lining the route, mingling with what's left of the old rail yard and meat packing neighborhood. For the residents, maybe better than trains.

What's new for 2019 is this promenade, "The Spur", which is surrounded by a new-gen #skyscape, all mirrored and soaring. And a centerpiece of the #Spur is .... The Vessel. That's what has been getting the buzz and - I can testify - tourists.

To New Yorkers and urban dwellers it looks at first like a parking garage, levels with people, and then you see, like the buildings, it's all mirrors, and art, and people interacting and, well, doing a lot of climbing!

This is just a coming attraction, from my phone actually - with my field day to "do street" and see The Vessel glommed together. I have some hi-res images of various views of that thing, reflections and angles and stairway climbers.

In my camera/card still awaiting space on the 'puter are more images (color & b/w) - both the Spur buildings and the Vessel, which is like a mirrored onion with levels of people looking down at the crowds of selfie sticks.

Ah, summer in the city. [op cit. http://bit.ly/CitySizzle2 ] <<<<<- SOUND TRACK

Or, in the Vernacular, it's about numb-D-tree minutes past the hour of Zzzz
Maybe time to wake up? Because "all the seats are occupied" at the table where they frame the game.

Some great sounds, from blazing guitar to 'human passions' and the genius of Vangelis.

Bird on a Wire


Take that, Amazing Wallendas! We do it every day! :))
City birds.

THE sound track, clearly ... drumroll:

Bird on a Wire - Leonard Cohen

Like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free

Like a worm on a hook
Like a knight from some old-fashioned book
I have saved all my ribbons for thee
If I, if I have been unkind
I hope that you can just let it go by
If I, if I have been untrue
I hope you know it was never to you

For like a baby, stillborn
Like a beast with his horn
I have torn everyone who reached out for me
But I swear by this song
And by all that I have done wrong
I will make it all up to thee

I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch
He said to me, "you must not ask for so much"
And a pretty woman leaning in her darkened door
She cried to me, "hey, why not ask for more?"
Oh, like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free

This is actually from many summers ago, a favorite image - which, FWIW, wound up as a book cover. Preserved on KM/Kodachrome. Anyway, it's looking like summer again today, as we head into Independence Day week/weekend in the U.S. (Happy Canada Day, too.)

And this is the perfect excuse to re-post this sound-track to summer's beginning, as I've done each of 8 years on Google+.

Chelsea Hotel # 2609 (Color)


"I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
You were famous, your heart was a legend
You told me again you preferred handsome men
But for me you would make an exception".....

That was an iconic song ("Chelsea Hotel"), describing Cohen's informal dalliances with 60's music legends in a callous way.
But years later, and in his death, Leonard Cohen is perhaps best remembered for this purely spiritual song he spent years writing:

Hallelujah - Leonard Cohen


"I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah..."

Lyrics - En francais, in the video. In English below.
This photo was taken today/yesterday. It has basically been a war zone for years.
It has clearly seen better days. But here I think you can see its elegance, in B&W.

Leonard Cohen - Chelsea Hotel#2

CHELSEA HOTEL
I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
You were talking so brave and so sweet
Giving me head on the unmade bed
While the limousines wait in the street
Those were the reasons and that was New York
We were running for the money and the flesh
And that was called love for the workers in song
Probably still is for those of them left
Ah but you got away, didn't you babe
You just turned your back on the crowd
You got away, I never once heard you say
I need you, I don't need you
I need you, I don't need you
And all of that jiving around
I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
You were famous, your heart was a legend
You told me again you preferred handsome men
But for me you would make an exception
And clenching your fist for the ones like us
Who are oppressed by the figures of beauty
You fixed yourself, you said, "Well never mind,
We are ugly but we have the music"
And you got away, didn't you babe,
You just turned your back on the crowd
You got away, I never once heard you say,
I need you, I don't need you
I need you, I don't need you
And all of that jiving around
I don't mean to suggest that I loved you the best
I can't keep track of each fallen robin
I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
That's all, I don't even think of you that often

Here is a bridge... would you like to buy it?

Brooklyn Bridge


There are many stories about this bridge! It began as a for-profit (speculative) venture in the boom days of building up Manhattan.

Over the decades there have been countless stories and jokes about charlatans/con men trying to sell the bridge for a terrific price. Wonderful deal! Times change, people maybe not so much. Bridges can be a beautiful thing. To walk on or view. Driving, YMMV

Rescued/re-located from Google+ Collection, RIP April 2019

The Langham (and Dakota)


Here is the Langham, of which I never knew the name despite living/working nearby for decades.
Apparently it is owned by @Brian Millan - :)) - or at least he is a fan, who mentioned the name.

As you walk on or near 72nd St, with the renowned Dakota and Majestic, and opposite Central Park's Strawberry Fields, if you turn left rather than go into the park, one block north is a fairly nondescript white-front building, though with some nice roof embellishment and a distinctive copper-finished entranceway. Well, like finding a new bird, I've learned a new building name. Cheers, Brian!

And a few blocks further North is the American Museum of Natural History, now with an exhibit on T-Rex, illustrating the latest conception of how s/he actually looked, skin/fur wise, and with a "neat" VR experience of hangin' with T... Coming next.

Spooling Out Skyscrapers


An oldie, rescued from a Google+ "album", in the wonderful land of G. "Here's how we make skyscrapers in New York. (Park Ave)

I'm going to try to post the original image of the Skyscraper and have the whole album appear as a thumb. Though that may go extinct in April 2019. But here's this favorite, which I explain as "the way we do things here". Lots of growth, every spring.

Spring is Springing!


Drumroll... I'm predicting a thumbnail image will display if you're logged into anything Google or Chrome, or you will see a login. Either way, today's save-of-the-day, with 10 left, is this one. Some nice flowers there too. Spring, time for growth and replenishing.
