New York, week 2



Week 2
{Diana Does New York.}










golden stars on a sky the perfect colour, a boy with a dog and a harlequin friend.

people milling, pushing, shoving all in the name of art while outside a city goes on just being what it is.

In a quiet courtyard a boy meets a kindred spirit.

A girl in shorts and green shoes pauses.

pink glass; beautiful, obscene. A neck that aches from looking up.

they stop, they rest, they watch the people and in the darkest tunnel the light continues to shine on those who keep walking.



{more non-Diana pictures from week 2 will come.}

  1. I love that picture of N, it tickles me as that's just what my sister does too. And the Diana shots are lovely it'll also be lovely to see some none Diana shots, nice to have the contrast.

  2. I wondered what you were talking about with the tweet about huge pink dildos, but I didn't really want to ask :P They are pretty...

  6. Nye! That one made me laugh. And now I see the pink glass dildos you were talking about.

    You + that lens seem the perfect match. If either Widdle or Puke is a girl, I wouldn't think it inappropriate for you to name her Diana. ;)

  9. possibly a stupid question: were these taken with a real diana camera or those "diana" lens adapters you were talking about a few posts back?

  13. having forgotten about the dildos tweet, i saw that picture and thought for a moment that it was a chihuly glass sculpture. woman, you've succeeded where dozens of museums have failed: i think i might now find dale chihuly interesting!

  21. Love the picture of N. The one of the dildos makes my eyes water slightly - but you still make them look so beautiful.
