Bloody well right: Four photos "Of Place," rescued from BSB and now placed in my house.

During the winter of 2013-14, there was a top-notch exhibit at the Carnegie Center for Art and History, which is located across the street from Bank Street Brewhouse.

Of Place at the Carnegie: An "antidote" to the tyranny of our white bread Bicentennial.

Reminder: "Of Place" at the Carnegie, through January 11, 2014.

Subsequently, I purchased four of the black and white photos being shown in the exhibit by David Modica, a photographer I first got to know 35 years ago playing pickup-basketball.

In August of 2014, I got around to mounting these classy silver gelatin photographs at BSB, where they looked just fine in the spaces between the garage doors. Alas, with the remodeling and conversion into a new FOH schemata, they were judged superfluous.

So I said you know what and brought them home.

We hung them earlier tonight in the stairway.

The three portrait-sized ones were grouped together, and the landscape was placed on the left. at the landing.

Little Chef at Night, For Edward Hopper ... 2009

Say Cheese! David Thrasher ... 2013

Of course, neither the wall nor my beard exists any longer.
