Back to MOMA - more abstractly.



Back to Penn, heading to the E train, morning commute.


For Frances, a MOMA moment man.



I've been working on the railroad...

Men do make less interesting subjects than women do, even though I'm a woman, I can still say that,

I smiled at your MOMA man for Francis!

The first and second images are mysterious and interesting abstractions. I can feel something modern in them, like Duchampian (the Nude Descending the Staircase) or Bacon-esque (as in the painter, who does those blurry surreal figures with great color).
The second also feels like a light sky blue kimono with an obi of the same color.
Volumetric in the blurs.
Solidity in the ephemeral.
Keep on blurring:)

Sorry - something happened
What? No freaky types looking at art? He looks like my imagined stereotype of a New York teacher. LOLLLL - a boring dresser and no skin to speak of - the man on the train is a bit more interesting...
Thanks for trying, though. Next time find someone wearing what we in England call shorts... men sometimes have very nice legs.... you could take closeups of male skin.... (I think shorts are underwear in the States, but not sure. Here they are outerwear)
I agree with Irene, but I think it may be down to heterosexual loading in the pics of women, gives the pics an edge of voyeurism and hunger not apparent in the pics

John...photographing a women with her legs in the foreground (reading lady) isn't going to be flattering unless you have stick legs. You will get yourself in trouble doing this! Us woman don't just have good sides...we have good angles you know... :)

Lisa Sarsfield said...

Oh, I left that wide open didn't I? lol

Lisa Sarsfield said...

Don't worry John, I meant by trouble I meant for not photographing a womans best side/angle. It's an unspoken rule! lol

I am not worried about my address, that sort of information is available to anyone with access to a phone directry and these days it's online! I've already been rung once by a random person who looked up "sarsfield" in the Tauranga pages...it's hard to hide these things now days with out being anonymous!
