5-16-12 Of Selfies and Minnie and Bocce – Oh My

Today, for no particular reason, while on my way to the Union Square Greenmarket (where I later found the first Sugar Snap Peas of the season) I decided to stay on the subway and take some shots while crossing the Manhattan Bridge. What will probably not come as a surprise to most is that shooting off a moving subway while crossing a bridge leads to a LOT of truly awful shots.  However I did find a few that I liked.

I don’t often take self-portraits (let’s say hardly ever) but just as I clicked the shutter the subway rocked and I came up with this, which I rather like…

Later, on my way to ICP I went through Times Square which has a big rat problem…

and then took a moment in Bryant Park to watch some guys play a little Bocce.
