Bright Morning/ShadowShotSunday

About 7:30 in the morning. Everyone (except me) rushing to work 

The coffee stand on the corner of 9th Avenue is very popular

as is the one on 8th Avenue where you can see the bagels and rolls.

Back to the stand on 9th, pretty heavy on yummy looking carbs.
(This is not exactly my friend Merisi's Vienna!)

Berch has decorated the windows at the Moonstruck Diner

with pink balloons.......probably to celebrate the birth
 of my granddaughter Gretchen on February 1st...

Happy Weekend!

For other shadowshots from around the world go here
and for pictures of the snowy winter in Europe --a bit different from New York go here


  1. So much fun, Elizabeth! I was looking at your images, reading your witty captures, smiling and then, stopped in my tracks, seeing my name! You are very sweet, thank you! :-)

    I love walking vicariously through New York City, seeing it with your eyes. I love your hometown, dream of returning there for a visit. Thanks to you, dreaming has never been easier!

    A wonderful weekend to you and your ever growing family,

  2. Congratulations regarding a lovely grand daughter. What a wonderful day indeed!

  3. I love your walks about town.

    Congratulations on the new granddaughter.
    One day later and she would have been a Groundhog Baby like my son. (my Wednesday post)

    The Square Ones say woof !
    cheers, parsnip

  4. Congratulations!

    And now I know that Im meant to go to New York - there is a Moonstruck Diner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  5. You are right, that certainly is not Merisi's Vienna, but it has a certain charm all its own nonetheless! I love all the light in these photos.

  6. Ahh, I remember early mornings in NYC and all the commuters rushing to work. The morning sun has always been so bright in NY

  7. Congratulations! What a pretty name for your granddaughter : ) Love the pictures.

  8. I took a picture of the Moonstruck Diner when we were in the area!

    Lovely walk as usual!

  9. February and Valentines and hearts and sweetness are all about Gretchen! She's the ONE! And such a lovely newborn she is!!

  10. Oh Elizabeth, best wishes to little Gretchen!

    Your early morning photos really do convey all the to and fro-ing that we in NYC do to get where we are headed in the a.m.

    This early a.m. only had be to and fro-ing to the apartment building's laundry room, as I was determined to beat the crowd who might not have heeded their alarm clocks.

    What a beautiful Saturday this has been. xo

  11. What a happy, cheery post. I'd love to be in NYC on such a sparkly day.

  12. Gorgeous shadow pattern! Thanks for joining SS2!

    The Idealist Shadow.

  17. A world totally different from my own! Those bagels look yummy. :)

  18. Like Merisi said so well, "I love walking vicariously through New York City, seeing it with your eyes. I love your hometown."

    And I dream of going, "there for a visit. Thanks to you, dreaming has never been easier!"

    Sometimes I'm just fine with agreeing and saying Amen.

  19. welcome to the world Gretchen!!

    lovely city shots

  20. Congratulations on the birth of your granddaughter! So your granddaughter and mine are the same age! Thanks for your congratulations! Will they ever meet? I hope they will live to see a peaceful world in a beautiful world.

  21. February 1st a popular date for celebrations! This side of the Atlantic too - but for a different reason. Congratulations to all!

  22. {{ how pleasing
    to know
    there is
    a Moonstruck Diner!

    smile! }}

  23. NOW--->
    more pics
    of pink~wearing babe,

  24. Hi Elizabeth! Your wonderful photo of bagels just instigated a long search that goes something like this, "now where was that bagel shop?" When husband and I were there in June we went here:


    H&H bagels...which I see is now closed. We were sort of baffled when we saw it (no real sign on the door or anything, and so barren). It looked just like the photo is this article. So it was closing shop just as we were there, but unbeknownst to us. That's too bagel I've ever had.

  25. And congratulations! I love the name old fashioned. Have fun!

  26. Stunning light and shadow in the streetscape! And what delightful, tempting shop windows!

  27. It has been a long time since I've stopped by your blog but everytime I stop , it reminds NYC and the good time I had there . The 1 st picture is so New York , I love the light and the ambiance on it


I look forward to hearing from you!
