The City Is Alive With People

The City Is Alive With People

🌆 On Witchy Poo’s 1995 “Everybody Looks Good in a Helmet,” the second track “The Poor Man’s Parnassus” has quite a few lines that talk about The City.

“The City is filled with people.
The City is filled with bars.
The City is filled with street signs,
so people will know where they are.”

I sing (I guess it’s actually more talking than singing) that song in my head whenever I’m waking around the city taking “city pictures.”

“It’s all my fault. All my doing.”

I feel like this photo is a good representation of what “city pictures” look like in my head: building, solitary person dressed interestingly, shadows, and the sky.

A bunch of essays, photos and thoughts by Pat Castaldo.
