Yesterday in Pictures

I took the day off mostly.  Wherever I went I took my time getting there, stopping to smell the roses, or look down at the pavement.  I wonder when this was scratched into the cement? When they were in their heyday, or later, as a tribute?  I forget where I was, east of NYU, kinda in CBGB’s territory.

A pigeon I loved for a few seconds.  And fed cornbread crumbs.  “Cornbread crumbs kill pigeons you know,” Howard lied.

Screaming gargoyle-ish female faces!  That top room is lovely inside, I bet.

The Chrysler Building, seen from Grammercy Park.  What a work of art.  I never tire of seeing it. Who does?

A jacket I can’t possess.  


From Howard: “That’s too matronly for you.”  Hmmm.

Not sure I agree. I love the collar.

I want to take today off too.

And tomorrow.  I’ll compromise.  I’ll take half a day off each day.

Summer movies!  

Terminator Salvation!

Night at the Museum!  (I liked the first one, sue me!)

By the way, I seem to have developed a problem holding the camera so all the lines are straight.  I had to rotate the image of the Chrysler Building for instance, in order for it to be standing up straight.  That’s why the top of the building got a little cut off.

Why is that?  What sort of weird spatial problem have I developed??
