|This was actually growing in the rose garden at the|
Brooklyn Botanic—and not a plant label in sight.
(Even my friend the horticulturist couldn't ID it,
and she knows everything.) Any guesses?

|It's rare on a weekend—even late in the |
day—when you can take a shot of this bridge in
the Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden at the
Brooklyn Botanic with not another person in sight.

|Up on a hill overlooking Florence|
is the beautiful 12th-century basilica
of San Miniato. For me, a visit to Firenze
is not complete without a hike up
here. After spending some time in the church
and in the cemetery, I step through this
doorway to head back down to town.

|I borrowed this bucolic reflection from|
my daughter Lila, who got in a boat and rowed
out on a pond to capture this shot of
her friends' home north of New York City.

|These are in Père Lachaise cemetery, one|
of the most beautiful, peaceful spots in Paris.
Though it makes for a good photo op, it
also saddens me to see how some of
the graves have fallen into a sorry state.

|I came by Rockefeller Center on my way to|
work recently and snapped a few shots of this
famous bronze gilded statue (apparently the most
photographed piece of sculpture in NYC).
He's being photobombed by that couple, but . . .
|He's being seriously photobombed|
by Jeff Koons' gigantic half-pony,
half-dinosaur topiary. You can
learn more about it here.
