It has been a remarkably dry fall.

The skies are mostly blue and clear - all the better for plane spotting. Yesterday afternoon on 15th St.

and the other day in the early evening when the sun's rays hit the plane's belly.

Some pretty evening skies

and such clear day ones.

 This was taken this morning

and this one on Long Island on Monday - a pin oak with lots of leaves left.

The silver birches near our apartment are at that interim stages of only a few leaves.

Brooklyn on Saturday

and the ferry back to Manhattan.

Now a few random blue pics...

Poster person on 22nd Street

an egg plant on white paper that managed to seem blue by contrast

and some berries that are more blackish than blue-ish but I rather like them.

On a quite different note, my friend Frances' etsy shop FoakleyArts is up and running. She is the most astounding knitter and her hats and scarves are works of art in themselves -quite breathtaking in their complexity.


  1. certainly looks clear and blue. sorry (😉) to hear about your dry autumn, we could send some of this rain your way. though, i think i'm glad it's been just rain, not snow. we'd be buried by now.

    stay safe, belly rub for king B!

  2. Beautiful blues!

    Frances has a nice shop.

    Happy plane spotting! :-)

    Oh! And see you after Thanksgiving! xox

  3. Beautiful beautiful blue skies !
    Wonderful perspective on the building photos.

    cheers, parsnip

  4. Lovely post - thank you Elizabeth. I love that one of the guy from behind.

  5. Beautiful photos of one of those cities that has always captured my imagination. I would love to visit New York one day.

    Greetings from London.

  6. I guess the dryness has been washed out now with a mighty wave of slushiness. I love your friend's Etsy shop! Superb knittables. I have one too if you want to take a peek. I do pet portraits mostly
    Have a wonderful thanksgiving and keep your wonderful pics coming!


I look forward to hearing from you!
