Buddha's footprints


And looking at the silver statues in the middle,
where is "see no evil"?  On the other hand,
what does that have to do with Buddha
(as opposed to those turquoise monkeys)?  Oh well,
it's what you might expect at a NYC street fair.

Saving the Planet


There are 12 of these globes on display
(until sometime in September)
as part of the exhibit "Cool Globes: Hot Ideas
for a Cool Planet," which traveled around
the world for years before arriving here in Battery Park.
Each one is five feet in diameter and each
portrays a simple, everyday idea for combatting
climate change.  You can see them all here.

High noon


At the new(ish) Fulton Street subway hub
downtown—the shadows are
compliments of this.

The Weekend in Black and White


This flower is not the only thing wilting in the
heat wave we're having
 around here
at the moment.  (97°F/36°C today.)  And I
haven't turned on my AC because birds
have nested right underneath it.
Am I being foolish?

emerging moon


I was coming home late from work one
night last week and saw this
(just about) half moon playing peekaboo
with the clouds.  Snapped this just
as it was emerging.

Thursday Challenge—"unusual"


Not something you see every day:  This guy
was painted silver and had a parakeet
(on his head) and a kitten.  I didn't hang around
to see what his schtick was; I also didn't
give him money to see if it would make him move.
