FROM NORMAN AVE
As you leave Greenpoint on Norman Avenue you end up in an industrial abyss that eventually gets the new name of Bridgewater Street.
This building seems adequately fortified like a battleship.
Sunlight can bend and refract in very mysterious ways.
You just have to pay attention and look for it.
The sun is setting on this loft building on Norman Avenue and I see these circular light refractions and I can’t figure out for the life of me how they got there.
People are out smoking cigarettes or delivering packages and I’m just blankly staring into the abysss of light wonder.
And thus is my life of the Brooklyn Imbecile.
I’m always looking for interesting abstract images created from every day life in this fine city of New York. Here are 25 of my favorite ones that I took in 2011. The picture above is just rain-soaked newspaper fround on a Manhattan sidewalk.
