  • What is this a photograph of? Contrast of colors. Contrast of ideas. Why did the photographer take this picture? Is it a good photograph? What context can you gain from the image? What does your eye see first? Does it make you think anything? Where is the light source coming from? Is this a candid shot? What does that add? Where could you see this photograph? 
These are the questions I ask kids as we view a slideshow.

    How funny you are today New York
    like Ginger Rogers in Swingtime
    and St. Bridget’s steeple leaning a little to the left

    here I have just jumped out of a bed full of V-days
    (I got tired of D-days) and blue you there still
    accepts me foolish and free
    all I want is a room up there
    and you in it
    and even the traffic halt so thick is a way
    for people to rub up against each other
    and when their surgical appliances lock
    they stay together
    for the rest of the day (what a day)
    I go by to check a slide and I say
    that painting’s not so blue

    where’s Lana Turner
    she’s out eating
    and Garbo’s backstage at the Met
    everyone’s taking their coat off
    so they can show a rib-cage to the rib-watchers
    and the park’s full of dancers with their tights and shoes
    in little bags
    who are often mistaken for worker-outers at the West Side Y
    why not
    the Pittsburgh Pirates shout because they won
    and in a sense we’re all winning
    we’re alive

    the apartment was vacated by a gay couple
    who moved to the country for fun
    they moved a day too soon
    even the stabbings are helping the population explosion
    though in the wrong country
    and all those liars have left the UN
    the Seagram Building’s no longer rivalled in interest
    not that we need liquor (we just like it)

    and the little box is out on the sidewalk
    next to the delicatessen
    so the old man can sit on it and drink beer
    and get knocked off it by his wife later in the day
    while the sun is still shining

    oh god it’s wonderful
    to get out of bed
    and drink too much coffee
    and smoke too many cigarettes
    and love you so much

  • Starting a darkroom this summer at the camp I work at. Stoked to the max. Any ideas for how I should share the work that comes out of these young minds, seen with young eyes? Website? New blog?
