Bob and I went into the city to see the Georgia O’Keefe/Ansel Adams and other exhibitions at the MOMA there last Sunday. Then over to Chinatown for him to do some photography and me to sketch. I felt rather conspicuous in the park there where half the population of Chinese people in the city were congregating. The card playing ladies were a good subject though, so engrossed in their game that no one was looking my way. I loved the way they all seemed so close and harmonious, like a big family, sitting there on their plastic crates and with almost the same identical hats. THere was a live music performance with vocals going on, which to my western ears sounded a great deal like someone shrieking in pain. So I lasted long enough only for one quick sketch!
