The Ribbons

Fans of the Gates should not despair, the city will still have plenty of orange vinyl to offer. I found this lovely display in midtown for free.


The bottom image is after Photoshop had its way with it. Makes it a little easier to see what the subject is, but I also like how the original has that film of blue over it. I took this through a window, that's how the blue got there.


Actual sign of spring

They're called snowdrops. Central Park, before last week's snow.

Sign of Spring?

As spring approaches, the young fireplugs outgrow their green shell and bloom into a lovely red.

Not the crispest shots, but still a worthwhile look at come cute body postures.

Color serendipity

It seems like I could eventually put together a series of "what are the chances" shots. In this installment, what are the chances that while taking a photo of a collection of folded colorful tents (Union Square Greenmarket) a van with almost those exact colors drives behind them? And what are the chances that the light would turn red and hold that van there while the camera caught up so I could take the second shot?

These are the delivery bikes at Gee Whiz diner. What I was liking was the wheels and the little arches in that fence thing around the tree. I tried to make that more explicit with the crop. What I should have done was left my omlette for a minute and gone outside to frame the shot properly.

Orange white orange white orange snow white

Tonight's snow.
Bottom: I've been meaning to take a picture of this sign so tonight is as good a nigth as any. I like how simple yet clear it is.
Top: My thinking, in addition to the idea that the snow would continue the orange/white pattern, was that the oval positive space of the cylinder would work compositionally with the oval negative space of the hole. Not sure.

My mojito

Paint paste paper

I'm not sure if this is an actual old sign or if it's relatively recent art. Attractive either way. How's that blue sky?


Sometimes keeping an eye on the neighborhood downtown (or anywhere in the city probably) means peeking through some construction walls.

With the low clouds in the buildings in the background, the ones in the foreground seem to stand out more. The view down Nassau Street was one of the best places to see that effect.


(7 World Trade has only 5 rows of windows left before they get to the top by the way)

More yellow

What could be more yellow than a big yellow truck in front of two yellow awnings?

How about adding the yellow nose of a taxi? More?

How 'botu a whole taxi? More?

How about two taxis? That's all the yellow that fits!

I know, I'm a wildman.
