Image from the Underground

I cannot express how much I love this Walker Evans print. He is singing with his eyes closed. With an accordion. On the subway.

Image: Walker Evans Archive, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, but I found it on the Getty website

Next year, at a yet to be determined date sometime between the months of June and December, I will be visiting  Los Angeles California. I will respectably not visit any of the homes or neighborhoods of my youth.  But I feel a trip to the Getty will be in order. And In & Out. And maybe Disneyland. But most definitely the beach. A Pacific Ocean beach. Even if it is December.

Now if you will excuse me, I have to go meet a man named Pokey.
