Somehow we make beautiful things simply by working. Found on the wall of the rooftop car park at the Dominicks store near the corner of Damen and Chicago St in Chicago, IL.

Trains, planes and toilets

On a recent trip to New York City I flew from Toronto Island Airport to Newark New Jersey and caught the train to Manhattan.
The Newark Airport and it’s companion train station were exactly as I expected — the set of a near future scifi movie thriller. Something akin to scenes from Dave Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas.
Even the toilets had a surreal quality to them. Stainless steel over porcelain, who would make that choice?

Wooden Water Tower

My first visit to the Big Apple and this is the view from the window of my hotel room on 57th Street. Way more interesting than I expected. It’s like finding a hidden city underneath the glass towers, honking horns and crowds.
I glimpsed someone across the way cleaning up their dinner dishes one evening, then I knew I might never know New York.
