Kling Klang

Shot Of The Day: January 16, 2017





QOTD: Kling klang, du und ich, die Straßen entlang.
— Keimzeit

Backstory: The side of the old Pape building which now houses Eden II is festooned with murals. Staten Island is becoming well known for its street corner art. This is the newest. The music is from my favourite German band, it’s technically Ostrock as the members of the band are Ossies but the style is really more jazz than anything else. Can you dig it? — TAG

Locale: Stapleton, Planet Earth – Happy MLK Day!

Equipment: Nikon D5500 / Sigma 18~200mm f3.5-6.3 DC

QOTD:
Life takes from us the things we love
And it robs us of the special ones
And it puts them high where we can’t climb
And we only miss them all the time

Tomorrow Revisited

Shot Of The Day: January 13, 2017





QOTD:
Tom Snyder: Where did the name The Sex Pistols come from? Who thought that name up?
John Rotten: Some animal, I can’t remember. It doesn’t matter. It’s history.
Tom Snyder: Well, I think history matters a little bit! When you say ‘some animal,’ was this a member of the band that made it…
John Rotten: History does not matter. I mean your program’s called Tomorrow – there must be a reason behind that!

— Tom Snyder, Keith Levene – and John Lydon

Backstory: A very nice sunrise, starring the Verrazano Bridge. The quote is from an episode of Tom Snyer’s Tomorrow. I saw this episode in real time in 1980 and never forgot it. John Lydon was in full character mode and he and Keith Levene had a bit of fun at Snyder’s expense. — TAG

Locale: Clifton, Staten Island

Equipment: Nikon AW120
