Everything–almost–is beautiful!

In 1970 Ray Stevens wrote a theme song for his TV show. The song: “Everything is Beautiful.” Stevens was better known for comedy songs like “The Streak,” “Ahab, The Arab,” and “Harry The Hairy Ape,” but that didn’t deter America from treasuring this particular ditty. Nor did it keep us few chosen souls from accepting it as truth. In testimony to that truth I submit the following snaps.

First, nothing more than a dark hallway .

175 W 76

 

Next part of the front of a building that used to be something else.

Madison Av in the high 70's

 

An old Japanese jug…

The wet street outside a gallery with not much of interest inside.

W 22 in the rain

 

Another gallery with art so uninteresting as to make me admire the ceiling:

Gallery skylight

 

And another gallery where the high point was the stairwell:

Hansen-Worth Gallery

 

And a gallery where even the floor beat what was on the walls.

and another tree growing in Brooklyn.

  5. Ha ha! I’m beginning to see a pattern here. I think I’ll stick to bike rides and give the museum visits a rest! Great pictures & commentary, Richard!
