New York is such a vertical city that much of my time is spent looking either upwards or downwards.
Here a nice dramatic, stormy sky over the High Line.
Here looking down on 14th Street from the new Standard Hotel
-- a mecca for hipsters. Definitely not recommended for those
put off by large doses of snarky attitude.
Joe Pie weed, that usually loves growing in swamps, seems pretty cheerful on the elevated tracks.
Reya often takes pictures of reflections in cars. It works best when the cars are super clean. Here is 24th Street looking askew.
This blog is all about New York, but I sometimes long for England. My list of wonderful English bloggers is long, but when I want to relish English design/illustration at its best I go to Valerie Greeley's Acornmoon. She has kindly mentioned me in a recent post.
You can see how her world is so very different from mine. This is the joy of blogging, I think, that we can have glimpses into other people's worlds. Some thumb nails of her world below.
