All of these except for the skeleton holding the cat, which was taken in Gramercy Park, were taken in my neighborhood, the West Village. AND, the Tardis has once again crashed into a building on Perry Street. I can’t wait to take a picture of it at night with my new camera. I should finally be able to capture how cool it looks, when smoke pours out of it and colored lights flash in the windows.
Halloween is almost here! Haven’t seen the crashed Tardis yet though. This shot is from a previous year. The pictures following that are from one of the best holiday decorators in the West Village (and are up now, at Charles and West 4th Street).
Meanwhile, I’m getting a tooth pulled today at 2pm, after spending over a thousand dollars trying to save it (sob). Getting a tooth pulled is usually not a big deal right? I’m going to treat myself to a great big plate of macaroni and cheese to compensate for whatever I must endure this afternoon.
I want to see how my camera handles night shots and low light levels. I took this last night at the Loser’s Lounge tribute to the Beegees. This is singer Anna Copa Cabanna performing out among the audience. I guess this isn’t really low light though. It was a GREAT show, everyone was at the top of their game. I especially loved this song I never heard before called They’ll Never Know (it was recorded by Wayne Newton!) and sung at the Loser’s by Richard Barrone. I was also charmed by Clay Pigeon who has a morning show on WFMU.
That is me in the bottom row center with a bunch of co-workers from the ASPCA’s Kitten Nursery. The job only goes through the “kitten season,” which is April to November (or December-ish). I hope to able to get a temp job in another department at the ASPCA which will allow me to return to the Kitten Nursery next April. I also hope to return as a Medical Nursery Caregiver. I am currently a Nursery Caregiver, and the main difference is, and this is pretty self-explanatory, the Medical Nursery Caregiver gives meds. (But who knows, maybe I will love other departments even more.)
Medical Nursery Caregivers also get to wear the more flattering dark purple tops, where we wear the lighter colored lilac version.
