Chilly scene of winter

February 28, 2014

very chill

Most respond to winter by covering up more. Then there are those who favor mini skirts and drinks on ice.


Your phone is a remote

turn down the volume

Think really hard, hold your head up and your phone forward, and start pushing the buttons. The world is at your command, sort of.

rush hour

Sometimes I forget to avoid the area around Penn Station at rush hour – I mean rush hours. In exchange for being mobbed by commuters, there’s a lot to photograph.

Stroll down Seventh Avenue

May 23, 2013


We’ve been having a taste of summer the last couple of days. Temperatures have been in the mid-80’s and the humidity has been high. Thanks, but we’ll take more spring, please.

Her hair is rather sixties, and the sneakers-and-socks look harkens back to the eighties. (Too bad she’s not wearing saddle shoes.) In this up-and-down spring weather, it’s hard to know what to wear.

They’ll usually get a NY Yankees baseball hat or two while they are at it.
