"Yup. I love those signs. The creative folks behind them probably inspired this initiative. I think those were private projects though. With this change, the City will start developing projects like that - and paying for them."
"I heard that the City had just redefined the definition of Public Art to include orphan signs and murals on private property. Meaning that the City's cool Public Art office will be able to fund the creation of art in broader ways around…"
"At first glance, and without blowing up the photo, these could be Canada geese flyng north or hawks flying south, although i have never seen hawks in a flock, not even chicken hawks. Pretty trio --geese, yellow cottonwoods, blue Sandias.
"I guess power lines, missing signs and concrete empty space are three ways to see where public funding and business advertising does not go. Barelas, ain't Corrales or Knob Hill. A little equity, please Albuquerque.
Really enjoying your photos of our quirky town, especially Vulcani * Zadora. Do you think the tire fell off the space between words and rolled to the sidewalk? My photos tend to be tightly cropped, I appreciate how airy and loose yours are in contrast. Cheers, Dan Shaffer, aka AlbuquirkyPhotos. Go to AlbuquirkyPhotos.com for more...
Caught a glimpse of some comments posted by you on DCFix; your approach to life seems friendly, so am hoping to ask a couple of questions. I just joined the club (?), and am unsure of its meanng and purpose; it was suggested to me that DCFix was qualified to help with my web page layout on Etsy.com. I have 5 books -written over past half century - and a number of oil paintings that have been reproduced as Giclees; so need better photos and an attractive layout. Anyway...
Here's a short poem you may like, to be offered by your mostest friend:
Great poem. I use Zuzu Petals because I started using "Zuzu" as a "counter name" you know, the name you give people when you order at a counter, because my name is not very "sayable." I used to write a great deal of poetry, but then I started grad school (ha-ha). I enjoy reading your writing, post more soon. I didn't know that Zuzu's Petals was a poetry website, but I'm glad it is. I live in Santa Fe, but I'm Duke City native.
