Why is this blog like the Indonesia Pavilion?
Here's a shot of the Indonesia Pavilion during the second season of the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair. If you click on it to enlarge it you'll see a "Closed" sign blocking the entrance. Due to politics and finance the pavilion didn't open that season, and sat there instead as a sad symbol of world politics.
I'm hanging out a "Closed" sign for a few days. No politics here, just a trip that will keep me away from my main computer and my photo files. I'll be in New York and if I get by the fair grounds I'll make a stop at the site of the old Indonesia pavilion. That's if I venture outside much - they're predicting snow and after 35 years of living in Los Angeles I'm spoiled!
