Scenes from Dream Street

I love the idea of diptych. It's brilliant. Combining two unrelated photos to tell a coherent but different story -- different from the original context. Diptych has been around sin
ce antiquity and continues to be useful in modern art. Compare Andy Warhol's 1962 Marilyn Diptych. Triptych is more wonderful but very difficult to execute effectively. [That's pronounced "trip - tick". No it's not the one on the Steak House's menu.]

Taken on the street but at different places. Different times. Yet they could have been be playing together.

Hope your day is going well.
