Image of the Day

Robert Adams, Kerstin Enjoying the Wind, 
East of Keota, Colorado, 1969. 
As recently reported by Carol Vogel in the NY Times,
Adams has selected 169 prints from his personal 
collection, covering the span of his career, for acquisition 
by the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.

Two comments:

1. This is the kind of photo that made me pine for the West when we lived on the East Coast.
2. Every time I start thinking about paring down my 7-day subscription to the Times, I get the Friday arts section and change my mind.

I'm a little lukewarm on the heel, and they are definitely better in brown, but from the front? Dope.

Training Day

I could not care less about the Dolphins (sorry, Miami) but I'm so stoked to have football season back.
