For about a week I’ve been cleaning house and I barracked myself in my Chelsea apartment until it was done–though reading, non-blog writing, sleeping, web-surfing, wedding hopping and other things also got in the way.
Now I’ve finally did what I’ve been dreading to do….I’ve abandoned my old Picasa account (barely anything there now) and moved all my 2007 photos over to the infinitely better Flickr service. Here’s the hit parade:
- my Bushwick Open Studios 2007 set;
- my photos of the Gordon Matta-Clark & Rirkrit Tiravaniga at David Zwirner;
- my pics of the “Trigr: A NYC Street Art Show” at purePROJECT on Mulberry Street;
- my photos of FAILE’s street art agitprop on the LES (and I don’t use agitprop with any type of negative connotation that some political die-hards seem to think it has);
- my photos of my beloved OLD WORLD ORDER mural by Kim Holleman in my former Bushwick loft;
- photos of a glorious Americana Home in historic Sag Harbor in Long Island, NY;
- photos of the Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial in Holmdel, NJ…including the U.S. War Dogs Memorial;
- photos by photographer Aram Jibilian of the Armenian Genocide denial rally by the Turkish government and lobbyists in Times Square in 2007; and
- photos of the northern Manhattan neighborhood of Inwood, where my good friend Jack lives.
It has been a cleansing process but one wrapped up with sad feelings and fond memories. I love Google for everything else in my life (email, docs, calendar, reader and even finance) but the photo application just sucks…what can I say, any chance Google can fork over a few billion for Flickr before Microsoft snatches it up?
Needless to say, my more regular blogging will resume this week…
