Wow - was it ever COLD yesterday. The weather report said 24 degrees at 1 p.m., but it felt colder.
That was about when I was walking on Fifth Avenue near 19th Street, and I became interested in these barricades, with their fluttering ribbons and interesting shadows. Pictures just didn’t do them justice, though. The fluttering was essential. So here’s a short video.
There’s a bit of shake at the end because a woman walking her dogs INSISTED that I step forward so she could walk behind me. (I was standing against a wall; maybe she didn’t want to be in the picture.) Also, notice how the light changes at the very end when the sun goes behind a cloud.
