This just goes to show it is always a matter of perspective. Weather which we humans may consider inclement is downright cozy if the person in question happens to consist of snow! Note the can of Coca Cola at bottom right. Very nice. A shout-out of thanks goes out to Rebecca Poole for bringing this item (which hails from Forest Hills, Queens) to my attention. Thanks!

(For the Love of Big Brother)
As captured today on 70th Place during a sojourn from Woodside to Queens. As far as surveillance signs go— and I have been paying special attention to them of late— I give this one (on the basis of cheer alone) an enthusiastic thumbs up!
better more, it makes for a nice opportunity for self-promotion. I would like to share the status of my surveillance series of snow globes as there have been some interesting developments! To recap, follows are the first two (which I posted June 20th):
My buddy over at Flatbush Gardener posed a provocative question. It went (more or less) as follows:
So what are the people on the other (viewing) side of the camera doing?
I have wondered about this myself. So I decided to take a glass-boat boat tour through the labyrinth of my imagination. I determined three two sided globes were in order:
- One wherein unsavory activity was coming to pass under surveillance and the “eyes behind the camera” do not notice.
- One wherein unsavory activity was coming to pass under surveillance and the “eyes behind the camera” do notice.
- One wherein no unsavory activity was coming to pass under surveillance and the “eyes behind the camera”— well, you’ll see soon enough.
I have embarked upon #1 and #3. (Still waiting for parts for #2.) Without further ado, here they are!
See No Evil, side 1
See No Evil, side 2
And the last part of the trilogy. Just like George Lucas, I have yet to nail down a name for it…
All is well in Closed Circuit Cameraland… or is it?
It is rare that I solicit the Mister’s input— much less presence— in my play space. But in this case I did. I told him it was too bad it was so tiny as I would have liked to have put a red ball gag in the dude’s mouth— but then noted I could paint a mask on him. The Mister said to leave it as is because (and I quote):
Less is more.
So there you go.

As spotted during today’s perambulations around Sunnyside and Long Island City. It is a little hard to decipher but there more going on here than meets the eye. Let’s go in for a closer look, shall we?
Someone has seen fit to add “The Queens Way”. I’ll leave it to you, gentle readers, to ascertain exact what constitutes spreading love the “Queens way”. In any case, I found this discovery downright uncanny given a snow globe I am working on presently.
