i found myself in the city with an hour to kill, so i went for a walk and saw not one but two great public exhibitions put on by heights arts. hooray for public art!
the knitscape in larchmere was a fantastic little treat to happen upon. let's face it, larchmere is fantastic. there's a great knit shop (just inside that amazing purple door) as well as some seriously gorgeous architecture. plus it brought back memories of driving through there to get the girls to PT way back when they were little and non-mobile. i especially loved a series of apartment buildings i noticed for the first time today which were completely identical save their different juicyfruit colored doors.
then it was time to grab some lunch before heading to a picnic at the girls' camp. i took a little detour to check out the fencspiration i had noticed one very wet + snowy day back in february. today i was the only person on that side of the street and i'm sure some people thought me nuts for taking pictures of it, but if somebody noticed it for the first time, well then yay hooray for public art.
but then there was something else.
something quite alarming, actually.
do you see it?
those are TWO AIRPLANES. one exceptionally large and one midsized. when i saw them through my lens, i just stood there staring. it made me really uneasy, wondering what on earth was going on up there? was that an escort plane? was there about the be a mid-air collision? they were definitely flying in tandem. whether by choice or force, i do not know. what was going on? and who was inside those planes? i can only hope everyone is safe and sound and where they are supposed to be. xoxo

my bag credit at whole foods went to heightsarts.

i didn't even realize the planes were on that photo until this evening. i wonder. and i am still creeped out.
