thursday in the hood


You may recall my love of the artist Banksy.
Well, I was walking up Madison Avenue
the Saturday before Christmas
and this window caught my eye ...
reached for the camera
and
snapped.

  2. Banksy's great but it's the reflected "prick" in the window that really makes the shot so quintessentially NY.

  12. Sandy introduced me to Banksy a while back, and I'm finding out that I've seen a lot of his work and just didn't know it was his. Don't think this is one of those though. But it's a marvelous capture!

    I'm thinking the "prick" isn't a reflection, but it's not part of the artwork either. Banksy wouldn't be above using it for a caption so much, as he'd have just done a better job writing it.

    But the reflected sig? Brilliant!

  14. I had to look this guy up on the net. I had seen a feature on him on a Sunday news show but never held on to the name. Thanks for sharing your real experience with Banksy in his outdoor art world.

  18. I love the way the reflection overlays the figure. He appears to be watching the traffic pass by.

  19. Wonderful! Is that one inside??

    Coming home on American Airlines yesterday, their magazine had an article about this young woman who lives in Brooklyn and does her own kind of street art. You're going to love it! Go to americanwaymag.com and to the article "The Peter Pan Syndrome" her website: ColorMeKatie.blogspot.com
