(Long) Weekend Reflections


Bathing suit?  Check.  Sunscreen?  Check.
Cool shades?  Check!
Don't know how you Americans out there plan
to celebrate the long 4th of July weekend,
but I hope you get all the hot dogs,
hamburgers, beer, and fireworks you want.

Thursday Challenge—"young #2"


I cannot tell a lie: I was in Battery Park

(at the tip of Manhattan) this past
weekend, and used my long lens to take
a bunch of pictures of this adorable
little redhead and his black Lab.
(I did trash all but this one though; I'm 
not a total baby-stalker, you know.)

ABC Wednesday—Y is for "yarn"


At my local greenmarket, there are some
nice people who raise sheep and
who sell—in addition to meat—yarn in
beautiful saturated colors.

Squad 18


The friendly firefighters on West 10th Street
in the West Village were feeling the
pride and sharing the love on Sunday, as
NYC's huge gay pride parade took
place a block away from their firehouse.

Ladies who lunch . . .


sometimes lunch here at La Grenouille,

where the noontime prix fixe is
less than half what dinner costs (though
that's not saying it's in my daily lunch budget)
and you're almost guaranteed to spot some
celebrity slurping split pea soup
with pumpernickel croutons or chowing
down on filet mignon sliders.

inSPIREd Sunday


This is St. Bart's Episcopal Church, at Park Ave.
and 50th Street. It's just about 100 years old,
and more ornate on the outside than it is on the inside.
They have a wonderful children's choir,
and their pipe organ is the largest in New York
(and one of the 10 largest in the world).

The Weekend in Black and White


Most weeks I see this five days out of
seven.  Somehow it never gets old.
