The Newtown Pentacle

Altissima quaeque flumina minimo sono labi

Short one today, just two shots I kind of like. Having to tow a tow truck just strikes me as some sort of karmic parable in the first one.

Speaking of karmic parable, in the second are two nicely red Panavision trucks.

There was a fair amount of activity going on near Dutch Kills this weekend on 29th street and the impression I received was that the sitcom “30 Rock” was filming something in the orange building to your right.

Major posting coming tomorrow. I’d suggest making a cup of tea or coffee before wading into it. I found something incredible in Long Island City recently, which will be presented tomorrow at this- your Newtown Pentacle.

  1. Karamic parable. I take a different view: It’s a symbol of Man’s eternal strugle to assert himself against, and suffering the occasional, inevitable, defeat, in a universe governed by randomness and entrophy. Even the machines devised to overcome the deleterious effects of the laws of thermodynamics are subject to these same laws. A musing one should enter with caution as down this path is the madness of nihilism.
    One may also consider if quis custodiet ipso custodes then one may ask quis tractus ipso machina tractum?

    It’s a bit much pretentious pontification for a lousy broke down tow truck, isn’t it……….
