Famous quotes containing the words street and/or crescent:

    The invention of photography provided a radically new picture-making process—a process based not on synthesis but on selection. The difference was a basic one. Paintings were made—constructed from a storehouse of traditional schemes and skills and attitudes—but photographs, as the man on the street put, were taken.
    Jean Szarkowski (b. 1925)

    On me your voice falls as they say love should,
    Like an enormous yes. My Crescent City
    Is where your speech alone is understood.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
