A Sunday morning walk along 10th Avenue towards the old meatpacking district - but also an essay in basic New York black.
This first a shop under the High Line - not a promising location.
nothing seems to last here.

Marble on Gansvort Street - sort of echoing the sand in the bare trees post.

A most amazing shop front picture of the city - elegant people, a drunk etc. A hint of Edward Gorey perhaps and also of toile which tends to have happier themes.......

Outside Park where we used to have brunch sometimes.

Back on Gansvort Street. White vans reflected against basic black.


  1. I've never been to New York so I'm enjoying being taken around by your photo's.

  2. How interesting, this black and white theme.


  3. Bunny: I hope to give you a little idea of what it's like.
    I was yelled at by a worker on the subway today - apparently we aren't allowed to take pictures........
    Oh, dear.

    Paz: I'm sort of missing Moroccan colors here.......and you experimenting taking color out.
    So many of the most famous photos of NY tend to be black and white.

  4. Sorry the worker yelled at you. They're not supposed to. There was a time, I believe, they said you can't take photos in the subway any more. National security, etc... because of 9/11 but I think that they said it's okay to do now. Hmmm... I'm not sure but I take photos on the subway when I want. I suppose, I take it so quickly, I don't give anyone a chance to say anything to me. ;-)

    I didn't know that the famous city photos are in black and white. Hmmm... Well, I posted something different for you. ;-)



I look forward to hearing from you!
