a day of contrasts

Today was a study of varying degrees of culture: from the dynamic visuals in "Ironman 3" to the punk fashion culture in a red carpet event at the MET ("Punk: Chaos to Couture") and finally the culture of academia in the form of a talk by Dr. Elaine Pagels speaking about "Art, music and politics in the Book of Revelation"

The movie was fictional, the celebrities are artifices constructed by their adoring fans, and theology is eternal, whether you believe or you don't. So, where was the "real", and how did all the stuff I saw and photograph reflect my own sense of what is important and what is real?

I'm not sure but when I know, I'll let you know.
