Putting the Cart before the Horse

North Narrows Road, Staten Island (March 18, 2014)


  1. David, perhaps it's senior dementia, but the plight of an awkwardly tipped scale model animal makes me sadder than it ought to.

    And as I'm half blind, I'm a total sucker for trompe l'oeil. The squnity double-take for perceptual re-set has become pretty much habitual.

    But, to get straight to my nagging concern... Do disposable plastic animals go to the glue factory on the backs of pickups?

    (Somehow I think not... glue made out of melted plastic?)

  2. Tom, I also found the off center horse in the back of the truck disturbing. I debated following the truck to its destination, glue factory or not, but at the last moment continued on to work. A nagging regret that I didn't follow my instinct to follow.
