Telectroscope again

The fantasy wrapping the Telectroscope is wonderful on its face. The idea of a tunnel under the Atlantic and a "telectroscope" that allows us to see each other is an interesting thing to ponder.

Even better though, is watching strangers on two continents waving and making faces and writing notes to each other. People who would never see each other in the "normal" world writing notes telling the person at the other end to "jump!" or "touch your nose". The skeptic behind me who kept saying "it's way later over would already be dark" laughing when people waved back at him.

It's not riveting theatre, it is interesting real life. Go, hang out a while. You will get hooked and you might make friends who will let you surf their couch the next time you visit.
You might even see a wedding party making interesting photos. This was my second trip to the Telectroscope and my second wedding party.

Why did I get my reflection when I took that photo? I thought that the person looked just like me. I must be doing something terribly wrong.

I'm so glad you are covering this for me - I don't have a reason to go to Brooklyn and I'm enjoying seeing it.
