What is this chalet of which you speak?

I'm not sure I even understand what a "2 bedroom chalet" could possibly mean.

172/365: Tuvan throat singer

Tuvan throat singer

Today is Make Music New York, so a few of us went to see Alash, a group of Tuvan throat singers. Throat singing is notable because a singer can produce more than one tone at a time. It's some pretty cool stuff.

Photos of other groups performing at MMNY are here.

171/365: East Village kitties at play

East Village kitties at play

It's hard to read in this photo, but the newspaper covering the cat on the right reads "Lower East Side Rejoices as Yuppies Commit Mass Suicide".

Today's photo walk was a testament to the bizarreness that is the East Village. Check it out, including some photos are from the 6th Street & Avenue B Community Garden, which has a huge sculpture made of detritus found on the streets of Manhattan.

169/365: But will it clear my head?

But will it clear my head?

When we were cleaning out the department today, we found a box of stuff from my predecessor, who became emeritus and left the university something like 20 years ago. One of the things that we came across was this head demagnetizer. While I know what it is, I still couldn't help but think the name is funny. Maybe magnetism has been the problem the whole time. I wonder whether it would clear my own head, if I just brought it close enough and turned it on...

The graffiti is speaking to me

I was uninspired on my photo walk today. It's like the street was speaking to me, telling me to snap out of it.

Today was a toss-up. Here is the other contender.

162/365: My sentiment exactly

My sentiments exactly

If I were the type of person who's searching for a religion, I would probably join this church. The Guantanamo sign is new, but the ever-changing quotes that Judson Memorial Church displays on their signboard always resonate.

161/365: Abandoned in Fort Tilden

Abandoned in Fort Tilden

Today we biked around Fort Tilden, an former army installation, now part of Gateway National Recreation Area, that's been many things over the years. Today, all of the buildings are abandoned, and therefore, by definition, creepy. If you carefully look at the windows in the larger building, you'll notice you're looking straight through to the dunes on the other side.

159/365: I thank summer for giving me fountains

I thank summer for giving me fountains

Julie said a lovely thing about my fountain photos the other day. Well, in exchange, I also must thank summer for offering me so many fountains to play with. That said, I promise to diversify my subjects—both to maintain viewer interest and to broaden my photography experience!

(Here's a shot of the same fountain creating a rainbow.)

When you don't know what else to take a picture of, there's always cold sesame noodles.

BCN has whimsy but NYC has quirk

I was rather pleased to find this today, as one of my contacts just invited me to join a flickr group called "Random NYC". Random, indeed.

155/365: Coffee cupping

Coffee cupping

This is not a technically good picture at all, but the story behind it is kind of interesting. I walked into Cafe Collage to get a cafe au lait today, and ended up joining the staff in a coffee cupping. A cupping is to coffee as wine tasting is to wine. Of course, like wine, it apparently has a vocabulary of its own, and learning to associate those words to the coffee is not something you can do adequately just by walking in off the street. But it was fun, and that kind of thing doesn't happen to you every day, so here's today's photo.

Well, at least it wasn't 90 degrees, like I was expecting.

153/365: Goodbye Barcelona!

Goodbye Barcelona

I guess I have a thing for fountains. Water is, indeed, a super cool subject. And I wanted something suitably wonderful as my last picture, so I give you the Magic Fountain. For more shots, see Flickr.

Tonight is my last night in Barcelona, so unless I take photos at the airport tomorrow, you may expect a return to New York City starting Sunday.
