the dynamic duo
Wednesday, August 22, 2007
It's been a rainy week in NB and I've really loved every minute of it. (I've often joked that I have reverse seasonal affective disorder) I know it's dreary, but it makes me feel cozy just getting in my car. I also feel this shared thing with everyone, we are all a little wet and a little trapped indoors, and we become just a bit closer because of it.
Anyway, I passed this impressive grave stone during a walk today and can't decide if it looks better in color or black and white. Any opinions on which one is better?
I had no idea who scudder was and why the name ends in a period, (but it does add an air of importance). I did some research on scudder and found this link http://www.ettc.net/njarts/details.cfm?ID=906 that explains everything.

This was a funny poster to see on the newspaper machines. I did some googling and apparently this is the symbol of a dvd that shows crazy stuff, (that was a terrible description). Here's how www.resistancefilms.com describes it :
"INDECLINE The new BFK production, as politically incorrect as always, hard skate, daredevil graffiti, over the top violent, advertising hijacking, anti-Bush manifestation which degenerates, fight clubs and more generally, misery in its sad and tough reality, the American society is collapsing, here is the testimony… A must-see ! "
I doubt I would enjoy 'over the top violence', but it was an interesting addition the the new brunswick scene and I liked the logo with subtle demonic details.

OK, even though you can't tell at all, this was from last week's MUSE concert at Madison Square Garden in NYC . I know, I know this is not a photo of New Brunswick, but I just think it came out really cool. The band was amazing, (as always), but they really amped it up for the big arena and had spectacular lights and effects. I just happened to catch this photo during an especially powerful boom. OK, I promise it'll be back to NB tomorrow, (I just had to make an exception for my favorite trio).

This is the iron gate of a very old cemetery on Neilson St. In fact, it was so old that I saw a grave of someone born in 1802! I didn't have any particular reason behind taking this photo. I guess I just liked that it was old. Sometimes in the midst of all the redevelopment in the city, you forget that the old stuff wasn't all bad.

while others chose to suffer in the heat (see man in back), one of my best friends and i had some ice cream after work. this place, 'cold stone creamery' is famous because you can customize your ice cream. here jessica enjoys a birthday cake in a cone. so cute.
this is part of the new rockoff dorms on george st. when i went to school here, there was no such cold stone creamery, (or any decent ice cream place for that matter), and i'm miffed about that. i mean, these new kids don't know how sweet they have it.

table for one
I decided to take my lunch break outside the other day. I've passed by this open area so many times and have wanted to eat my lunch there, but just never did. It's a nice, shaded spot on Albany St. with lots of open tables and even a performer once in a while. Well, whatever holding me back wasn't the other day so I got a nice spot and enjoyed lunch for one. This shot was from my lunch's viewpoint.

it takes two
So I was walking down the street the other day when I noticed this man riding two bicycles at the same time. Sorry for the crazy angle, but I literally whirled around as they rode past me and I just had to get a shot.
My guess is that little boy in the white is his son and they just bought a new bike and this was how they had to go home. I can ride a bike one-handed, but I've never been able to master the hand-less ride. Kudos to this guy.

back in new brunswick!
I've been away for awhile; a looong while. I had a temporary position in Washington DC and then did some traveling abroad. But now I'm back in New Brunswick, working and getting ready for grad school in the Fall. (there is a God!)
While in the midst of redevelopment, New Brunswick is going through a number of changes, (which I look forward to documenting). This is a happy shot of the downtown area on George Street. You may notice the Jamaican flag on the right. I was pleased to see that George St. is now lined with international flags to represent the different backgrounds of local businesses and communities.
