Derick, August 4, 2013

Today I met Derick who lives on Randall's Island -he's been enjoying the views from my bench. I filled up about an inch of water that had evaporated (the white pigment at the top had dried up and was cracked like old oil paintings). I tried out a polarizing lens to cut reflection (the bit of blue is a reflection from an IKEA bag.  Kind of fun to see in the composition, even if it's an artifact, as I've never seen blue bacteria and I suspect it is because blue wavelengths are so powerful that no organism is foolish enough to toss those wavelengths away.). Dogs have dug up one leg so Derick helped me place a rock there until I get out there with a shovel to fill in the soil.  Day 54.
