“The Concorde Lands” 1985

One day I dropped someone off at JFK and decided to go to nearby Gateway park and just sit there and wait. British Airways and Air France were the only companies flying Concordes and I knew I might be waiting for a long time. It looked so different, and really was a beautiful bird as it landed…I don’y fly but I would’ve liked to have gone for a ride on that plane. I think a one way ticket to London was at least $5,000 but maybe it was $10k, I forget.

Peekskill Hollow 1985

Finally scanned this picture of a “Real” gas station which was still in all its 1950’s glamour. The pumps were still operational and my pal’s car was a 1967 R/S small block Camaro…

“Der Rote Lastwagon” 2014

*BigDaddys-RED-Truck-der rote lastwagen-2014 copyAmazing how one picture can change everything.
This one almost did just that. I saw a man with a red backpack adjusting his yarmulke, when suddenly “Der Rote Lastwagon” made its fateful left turn. Suddenly the Bechers became seekers and had me over to their house, full of other important Dusseldorfians. Shore swore it was not a bore. Ladd was glad. Bram said Damn! Stuart said screw it, and almost stopped taking pictures. Gilden left the building. Peters said it was sweeter. Turpin started chirping. Blake said it was Jake. Eric became hysteric. Harper said it was sharper. Poor Vivian, almost came back from oblivion. Meyerowitz hired it for Bystander. Even Colberg called to apologize for bashing “street” for so many years…
But then Frank said it stank and it was over.
