Two Worlds

Where would you want to live, the tower or the old house?

This shot, taken in Astoria, makes me think of "Up," where the old man stubbornly stays in his house as skyscrapers rise all around. There's a car in the driveway, so someone still lives in the house. Someone who can no longer see the sunset.

Things like this always remind me of the woman who lived in the little tiny outside of the Macy's on Queens Boulevard. She was blind, and refused to move. She lived there, with her astroturf grass and lawn ornaments for years and years, I guess until she died and then they tore the house down.
