And once again, I had! Still looking fabulous, you two. Both of the pictures from this year were taken by Tod Seelie, and I have to concede, his pictures are better than mine. I love how his photographs look up the street and take in Fifth Avenue. It gives them life, and drama, and majesty. Mine definitely look ordinary in comparison. (Must try harder.) (Actually, you’ll probably see me copying the looking-up-the-street thing. The Humans of New York guy prefers that angle as well.)

Oh God, I just visited Seelie’s blog and his photographs are freaking mind-blowingingly amazing. He is so talented. They are breathtaking, Seriously. You to look. Here is the link again.
