The Gates in Snow


    Taken with Diana Camera

Well, as I expected, I have made a lot of barely adequate pictures of various small parts of The Gates by Christo & Jeanne Claude. It is one of those subjects that sort of defies photography. I have looked at a lot of web based images and have not seen a great image really anywhere. Though I am sure they do exist.

P.S. on the New York City notes... We went down to Times Square before leaving and also made it to Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum. While making photos, a taxi splashed a rooster tail of freezing water on me, hick tourist that I am. So, as you might imagine, I was thrilled with the attention. Or chilled maybe. Anyway, I may post a few more of these images if they are worthwhile.

~i just learned that Christo, or the artist I may have his name wrong, is considering suing people for photographing and using images of this PUBLIC ART installation...~

I believe that the NYC way to do it is to pose the art against something more important; a celebrity like, say Laura Bush or Paris Hilton.
