Orange Tree

Orange Tree

February 28, 2009

 The orange tree in our back yard is heavy with fruit. It seems to give two big crops a year, now, in late February and again at the end of May. (Strange that they aren't evenly spaced.) The fruit is delicious. When fully ripe the oranges are more sweet than acidic. The segments are thin skinned and don't hold together well, so if I eat one I usually peel part of it and eat it like an apple. Otherwise, I juice them. The fruits have looked ripe since mid-January, but they are just now ready.

The Invented Camera

Jo Babcock

"Repurposing a (usually) manufactured object aligns Babcock on the one hand, with Warhol and his Brillo boxes … but, in contrast to the Pop master, Babcock reintroduces his creations to the world as a new kind of functional object - a representation that now makes representations." (from the essay by Douglas R. Nickel, director for the Center for Creative Photography)
"Resolutely low-tech but conceptually adroit, the images he produces have a raw, antique sometime "terrible" beauty." (from the introduction by Bill Berkson, poet, art critic, teacher, curator)
