Prada Gaze Uncanny (Upper East Side)

008 009

After much circling and mounting frustration, I finally found this parking spot at E.70th near Madison Avenue on the Upper East Side. Completely immersed in the task, I shut off the engine, relieved, ready to step out and go about my Sunday afternoon. Looking up and glancing out the window, I was spooKed by the appearance of these three enlarged, illuminated spectral figures peering at me inside from outside the car. The impression was sudden and kind of unpleasant, or at least mixed. At first I thought they were real, but definitely non-human. Most of my revelations “happen” in the car.
