Sidewalk dispersions…

I find quite elegant the ripped pieces of street-level billboards draped, dangling nearly into the path of passers-by. Often the strips & shards of pasted poster-paper have become impromptu flowers, scrolls & slashes marring once complete photo & graphic images…

The remnants are a giddy whirl of the recognizable mixed with the not so identifiable but for the fragments of color and violated flatness of the advertisements.

And while photographing, a street-cleaner arrived to irrevocably tear-off & throw away into his mini-electric garbage-truck what so artfully had protruded from the huge metal panels affixed to the rising wall of a busy street. Happily, chaos & abstraction could reign again in a new home, but not for long.
