More Gloom

The gloomy weather continues.  I am worse.  I made a mistake this morning and read the news.  There is a nine degree above average heat blob of water in the Pacific Ocean.  The climate is turning against us.  Putin, the Russian scientist, says that many things cause climate shifts.  A slight change in the tilt of the earth's axis, he says. . . .  Yes, Putin and his colleague Professor Trump have studied the problem and cannot say that humans are effecting the climate.  Maybe some, but we don't know how much.  It's a big universe.

This photo was taken in '78.  See?  The weather was bad.  There has always been bad weather.

This is a photo to make your heart sink.  Why would I have taken such a photograph?  It makes you wonder if Eggleston ever had a happy day in his life.  He seems to find beauty where there is no joy.

And then there is Arbus and Winnogrand and the rest.

Maybe I should cast my eye in a different direction.
