Day 95: Something Beautiful—A Canary Door

Something Beautiful is a 2013 self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of the year.

Just a bright and fanciful statement peaking out of dismal, dreary and dirty stone. The canary door—nail polish on an aging hand. I imagine this in a dark London alley. The work of a housewife who could not bear another grey day. A corner in a maze of neglected structures of past Leningrad glory. The diversion of a worker tired of relentless community. A side street in New York’s Little Italy. Immigrants taking a break from conforming. Signaling a “coast is clear” for the sun and passionate appetites.


Much more to this door than the loud scream “See me!”
