Happy 4th of July, everyone! I don’t know about you, but I definitely own a red, white and blue tie-dyed T-Shirt that is worn by me on the 4th of July (and on other hot summer days as well). While mine is not as fancy as the very spangly tops seen in the above photo (taken at Smiths Market in the fabulous Salt Lake City, Utah) it is certainly more practical for the NYC weather — which is what’s important! Have fun and stay safe!
OK, so the vanity plate on the front of this Toyota truck could be translated a couple different ways, I suppose. “DRV PNK” could also be “Drive Punk,” but I think that the pinkish-hued Delicate Arch that you see on the Utah State license plates indicates that this message is meant to read as “Drive Pink.” As in, Drive Pink, Bitches!
Photographed During Another Beautiful Day in May, During My Visit to Moab, Utah.
It is a fact that if my sister had not needed to visit the local Post Office during our recent stay in the funky little desert town of Moab, Utah, then I would not have had the good fortune to discover this fantastic mural of a Black Crow poking its head through a sea of cactus. The unfortunate presence of two trash bins is owed to the fact that the mural faces an alley between the Post Office and the town’s Main Street. Continue reading Crow Mural By Skye Walker

If you don’t know already, it will soon became apparent from my posts that I was recently traveling (on vacation) in the beautiful state of Utah! Our first stop on a ten-day road trip was Salt Lake City, where I was able to see this ‘floating boulder,’ entitled Asteroid Landed Softly (1994) by Japanese artist Kazuo Matsubayashi, from my window at the Marriott hotel!
Aside from being a stunning public landmark, Asteroid Landed Softly is a working sundial that also suggests the image of Southern Utah’s landscape. The sundial works through a slit in the tower (seen in the above photo) as a beam of sunlight is cast on the plaza floor.
The mirrored column supporting the pinkish-brown rock also beautifully reflects the changing faces of the surrounding office buildings and fluctuating weather patterns to offer a limitless number of perspectives that can be captured in photos. I did not realize when I took this particular photo that I had also captured a resting pigeon!
The above photo was taken a bit later in the day, so there’s a complete shadow on the face of the sundial. You can read more about this beautiful and functional work of public art at This Link!
