overrated. have you seen it?

in the louvre in paris, 1980. i saw it from the back of a crowd after being amazed by the renaissance art in the front hall.

i will post a favorite foto for you. view from notre dame. a cloudy, summer day 1980.

i never understood why my good friend, michaël wertenberg would want to live anywhere else but paris, (or lisbon.)

paris is my favorite city in the world. always will be, (but i don't like cities.)

thank you, mr. van Griethuysen.

new foto: the pile of burned branches on the hill in my “back yard” — looks the same as it did five years ago when i took the foto, later published “predictions from podunk” on medium.com

the hills north of carson city were burned to the ground during a summer i was visiting friends in port bruce, ontario, canada. maybe 2003.

another summer fire that burned the eastern sierra foothills happened when i was on my way to or coming back to nevada from port bruce…
