So it's the summer solstice and everything is lovely and bright and breezy.
Obviously the moment to go mopey and gloomy and black and white.
Here is the Flatiron Building yesterday morning looking grim.
Here it is without any filters....
Empire State Building from pretty much the same spot I took the Flatiron Building from.
This morning, on the way back from the dog run, I stopped at Intelligensia for a cup of tea. You buy coffee/tea from the back of a charming mobile van and dogs can sit in the outdoor space outside what was, rather briefly, the Desmond Tutu Conference Center and is now The Highline Hotel.
Dogs hoping for crumbs.
All this in the grounds of the Episcopal Seminary where the church is modeled after Magdalen College in Oxford
there are wonderful old trees
and sunlit lawns.
I met a well maintained old truck on the way home.
