Good Day


Had a terrific morning yesterday, wandering around and shooting photos. I walked from my apartment on 29th Street all the way down to Henry and Grand on the Lower East Side, and then back again. It was quite a hike, but the weather was spectacular.

I was sorry to see that this piece is gone entirely. It’s been painted over. But such is the temporary nature of street art.

Then, in the evening, Bob and I walked over to 91st Street to see the most recent crane collapse. When I saw that on the news the other morning, I couldn’t believe it. What’s the likelihood of two crane collapses in just a few months? The reality is that there’s a whole lot of construction going on in this city, though.

Bob and I watched “The Third Man” last night. If you haven’t seen it, definitely rent it. It’s a great movie. The cinematography is amazing.

no doubt new street art will emerge in the days or weeks to come....ofttimes it's difficult to resist such a blank 'canvas'

Love The Third Man. It's fabulous. Never really understood what was going on, but it didn't seem to matter.

What a beautiful pic. Wow!!
