Yesterday morning, while out with the dog, I noticed a man collecting and arranging found wood in Prospect Park. By the time we were ready to head back home, the man had made a sort of Adirondack chair and was sitting on it, to try it out. His creation was still there this morning, so I took a photo. He doesn’t seem to have used any tools or any nails. Maybe this is something that everyone on the internet already knows about, but I’d never seen it done before and thought it was ingenious.
And then, since I had the camera, I photographed the dog fetching his plushy donut.
I’ve written a review of Earle Labor’s Jack London: An American Life for the 28 October 2013 issue of the New Yorker. (The image above is via Pets in Collections.)
