People and a Hot Dog Stand

One of the great things about New York is that you can dress exactly as you please

and no one will really take any notice. This is a pirate trying to get the dog's attention

and here someone whose hair screams: Look at me ! Look at me!

This litte old lady had sensible shoes and a nice bright mac and
 a splendid crochet hat which matched her stockings. 

At the dog park

This is the new St.Sebastian in the window of Kleinfeld's. He is not
 pierced yet. In fact he looks rather calm about the whole thing. Gosh!

A particularly eye-catching hotdog stand near 14th Street.

What a study in yellow it is!

Pouring with rain now and set to do so for the whole weekend.
Hope your weather is better.


  1. I love the lady with the bright hair! Too fun! That was one of things I loved about NY when we were there this can dress any way you please : )

    Fun post!

  2. Pouring rain! Send some our way will you? It seems ages since I've enjoyed some pouring rain.

    Hmmmm, perhaps I should relocate to NYC so I can dress like a Victorian lady in white lace whenever I please! Wouldn't that be fun!

  3. Your people photos always make me smile and think how lucky that you are in the midst of such characters. I could walk a couple miles and possibly not see another soul.

  4. I always enjoy seeing The Big Apple through your eyes. Even if nobody else noticed I'm glad you did.

  5. hot DOG!

  6. It's the portraits that really catch me - because you have captured something. Love the way you see the underlying colour too. Oh, to be visual!

  7. Oh Elizabeth, with today's rain, drizzle, mist and fog, my hair has given up the will to duel with gravity...a very bad hair day.

    I do agree that our city is full of folks who know about style, don't know about style, follow fashion, don't follow fashion, and just have fun with it all.

    Have you been to the current show at FIT?

    I do want to see it.

    Best wishes from me to you and yours. xo

  8. That girl in bright colored hair and the lady in red coat were really funny.

  9. ...and that`s why we love New York City! Wonderful shots.

  10. I love the way you manage to grab such good pictures they all seem to have a story to tell.

  11. Fantastic freedom! Love the colour and the atmosphere. It makes me smile happily.

    Check out my Ireland posts whilst I am in England. Back mid October.

  12. What a delightful post. I, too, love seeing that great city through your mindful eyes! Nothing escapes your lens!

  13. loving all of these unique NY captures.

  14. What a super fun post! I love the pirate and that funny coloured hair. Over here, if anyone dress different or odd, you'll draw stares - non stop :)) Hope you have a fab day

  15. That was superb post... My mouth started watering by looking the hot dog stand


I look forward to hearing from you!
