New York Shitty Photos Du Jour: Special “Stick or Carrot” Edition

WARNING 600

Touche 600

Same zip code, (more or less) same premise: no dumping. As you can see, gentle readers, asking nicely seems to work better than signage and surveillance.  On an eerily related note I am proud to share my two most recently completed snow globes. Meet “Detente” versions two and three!

In progress. Surveillance cameras + exhibitionists = a match made in heaven.  The yellow sign reads “SMILE, You’re looking great!”

Given what I saw— and smelled*— on Courtlandt Alley today:

  1. Credence is given to the argument that surveillance cameras do not make people more safe. They are not a deterrent against crime and/or other activities generally frowned upon by “polite society”. All they do is record it. They’re only as good as the person watching them. I can only imagine what the person “manning” the CCTV on Courtlandt saw.
  2. Methinks “Detente” version six needs to happen. (Yes, I already have two more versions on “the list”.)

Anyone interested in acquiring any of these objets de arte (once again) can/should shoot me an email at missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. Be sure to note which one piques your interest. Happy Friday!

A fellow named Mark writes (regarding the above image, which I posted October 2nd):

Hey,

So I was clicking through my tumblr the other day and discovered a picture someone took of one of my pieces has 7k notes on Tumblr. Kinda shocked about that, but its cool there’s that much interest in a piece.
This photo (You May Paint Over Me But I Will Still Be Here) you took is my street art:
Proof:
Any chance you’d be willing to credit me on that page with my name, help a brother get more of his art out into the universe?
Would be much appreciated.

Straight up: as many of you, gentle readers, are quite aware I get a mite bit angry when folks (“journalists” mostly) take credit for my work. Therefore it is only right that I give Mr. Samsonovich credit for his work.  What’s more, I fancied quite a few of his pieces. Take a moment and give ‘em a looksee— and thanks for contacting me, Matt!

Spotted On Green Street: Us & Them

Yes, gentle readers, it would appear our fair burgh— or at least Allen Green Street— has been pressed into service as Chinatown.

The film shoot in question is “Us & Them”

And here’s the rundown per a flyer located nearby as to what this endeavor is about…
