The Weekend in Black and White


I usually forgo my morning walk over the
Brooklyn Bridge when the temps
dip down to the low 20s F (with wind chills
in the teens), but I did walk this
week—and it wasn't so bad, especially
with that bright sun shining down.

Weekend Reflections


In honor of Valentine's Day on Sunday,

here are some silver hearts—seen
in one of the world's most romantic cities:
Paris, of course.  (These are meant to 
hold solid perfume, I believe.)

Thursday Challenge—"lots"


. . . of  extra-large farm-fresh eggs
for sale at the weekly organic market
held each Sunday on the
Blvd. Raspail in Paris.


There's LOTS more too.

ABC Wednesday—E is for "entertainer"


I took this picture of monsieur and his
portable piano when I was in Paris
in 2014.  I took it with me when I went back
in 2015, in case I ran into him again.
(I didn't, though I was able to give pics to
some other people).  La prochaine fois, peut-ĂȘtre.

Eve's forbidden fruit?


Some claim it was a pomegranate that
got Adam and Eve kicked out of the garden.
Such a sensual fruit—I wouldn't be
surprised.  After I cut into this one, I

decided it deserved a close-up.
(And then I used it for this. Yum.)

Good grief!


This six-story mural by Jerkface adorns
the side of a tenement building on
12th Street in the East Village.  It's been
there since October 2014.
