Saratoga En Pointe


Saratoga, N.Y., is the summer home of the
New York City Ballet.  Toe shoes like
this one (though most are more colorful)
were originally part of an exhibit
of the Museum of Dance and can be 

found all over town.  See a few more here.

knock knock


Somewhere in Florence . . .
Check out the detail on this thing—
it even has creepy little teeth!

Shadow Shot Sunday


Deciding what to have for dinner al fresco
in Rome—it was a great meal
at Da Sabatino, in Piazza Sant'Ignazio.

(Relatively) New


The 17th-century church of 
Santi Luca & Martina fits right in
among the ruins of the
Roman forum.

Weekend Reflections


A narrow calle is reflected in the window of this
color-filled Venetian art store. Thanks again,
James, for introducing me to this fun obsession.

Another memory


Not long after Sept. 11, these tiles showed
up on a fence in Greenwich Village.
The fence is no longer there and I'm not
sure what happened to the tiles,
but I hope they've been kept safe somewhere
(maybe they're in the 9/11 museum).

ABC Wednesday—J is for "jazz manouche"


Lunchtime gypsy jazz at the flea market:
We looked in at Chez Louisette
(popular place, where you're entertained
with old-fashioned French chansons).
Lots of fun, but a tad touristy—and I also
think the food and service are
better here at La Chope des Puces.
