Daily photographs by HANS VON RITTERN, with humorous, artistic and social commentary on life in the big city.

From the gallery: LITTLE DOT

LITTLE DOT: She is known as the ‘dot lady’. She reminds me of a 1950’s Harvey comic book character by the same name.  She haunts Greenwich Village around 6th Avenue near 8th Street. ‘Dot’ will rummage through the local garbage to find any in tact items she can and then obsessively paints dots on the things she finds…including herself.
Her ‘paint’? Diluted Pepto-Bismol! At night she tries to sell her ‘art’, but in the day time – I was told not to get too close to her, or she’ll get angry and dash off. . .

  1. Love this! You need to buy one of her pieces next time you see her at night.
