10-11-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreamy

“Well I just had to laugh
I saw the photograph

And somebody spoke and I went into a dream”

Lennon/McCartney

Nightmares are dreamy too.

10-8-14 In A Fog

I had not checked my spam filter for 2 weeks. There were over 800 spam messages. It is possible that one or two of you might have been caught up in the spam filter and I did not see your comment. My apologies but I simply could not scan 800+ pieces of mail looking for the misplaced diamond.

“A love letter lost in the mail, forgotten, miss delivered and then discovered years later and received by the intended is romantic. A love letter ending up in someone’s spam filter is just annoying.”
B.J. Neblett

Possibly of all the signs I see frequently, this is my least favorite sign in the world.

10-05-14 The New North Section Of The High Line

The last section of the High Line opened last week and despite it being Sunday I decided to venture up and walk it. It is quite lovely and completes the project. Each part of the High Line has its own personality and style. This one is the most open and, to quote a sign I read, has the least amenities. But it does have some unique features.

For instance, this portion comes with a children’s dungeon!

The designers also left many of the plants that had grown up there while it was closed rather than manicuring the space.

It has great views of the city.

I bet this becomes a new iconic NYC shot.

It also has the best views of the river since much of it runs along 12th Avenue.

And happy soft ice cream vendors await as you return to the street.

They did really well. Do visit when you have time.

10-4-14 Borough Walk-Sept 28: Williamsburg – Hipster Heaven to Jerusalem

Last Sunday I was the TA for the first of ICP’s fall Borough Walks. This one was led by the incomparable Andrew Lichtenstein, master of the Borough Walk.  (Damn good photographer and raconteur, as well) We went all about the neighborhood: gentrified; gentrifying; unsure; and old school Williamsburg. Many extraordinary sites around every corner, as block by block the neighborhood shifted.

Take a walk with me.
