Shadow Shot Sunday
Back in New York at last!
These pictures are for Hey Harriet's Shadow Shot Sunday - but I haven't got too many shadows in New York.
This first shot is of the unending escalator at the 42nd Street bus terminal that we use when getting a bus to go to visit our son. We are resolutely car-free in Manhattan and make some efforts to be 'green'.
For example living in an apartment with one boiler for 70 units is much more eco-friendly than 70 individual boilers.
From a building on 13th Street where I have my hair cut, you can see the red brick of Chelsea Market - the huge old Nabisco factory on 15th Street.
Here schoolgirls have their lunch sitting on stone benches.............
..............and you can buy real Italian food and all sorts of "Imports from Marrakech".
We went to the newish "T-Salon" the other day - very swanky and stylish - but the iced tea wasn't cold and the breakfast tea wasn't hot. So we have crossed them off our list.
This last picture hasn't anything to do with shadows at all. Just a shot of Saturday morning in New York.
The paper, peonies and herbs from the green market in Union Square.
Real strawberries - small and sweet - which rival or even exceed the ones in Morocco.
