I took 281 pictures today in the space of a three hour tour…
Admittedly some were for a new side project I am working on about the Lady in the Harbor but still…
I figured I would run another slide show, particularly since the East River, where the tour started, was jammed with police and Coast Guard boats and we saw the President’s Helicopter landing just south of the South Street Seaport but then I thought – three days in a row of not being able to find the right picture to express the day?

1: Is trying a new format in hopes of being more open, involved, interesting, exposed…or something else in that area.
