Marsh marigolds picked by small children who haven't quite grasped the

idea that you need to have stems to put in water...

Trailer Park on 23rd Street looking specially trashy in the bright sunlight.

Important maintenance going on by the car wash under The High Line on 24th Street.

Bright coat in a gallery

Bright building towering over TheHigh Line

and bright everything where the Lukoil Station on the corner of 10th Avenue - was where I'm sure something large and swanky will be erected.

Medium bright dog wondering why he has to look at large photographs in art galleries.  I rather liked these portraits - sort of Velasquez meets Murillo...

Wonderfully sunny today. Hooray!

Monday: Pouring with rain and chilly again...

 UNICEFMARKET Giveaway update:
Frances of the splendid blog Cityviews/Countrydreams was the winner picked at random this morning. I'm sure she will be able to find something really lovely there. I got a silk scarf for myself. See it here.


  1. such a sunshiney post! Love it.
    Enjoy your weekend x

  2. Wonderful bright colours - those celandines wow!

  3. I enjoyed your comment as much as your photos.
    Rather like the portraits. And I agree about Velasquez meets Murillo very exciting.
    I was looking at the ones in the reflection of your photo also.
    Plus who ever the The model is in that photo I would love to hear his story.
    The first photo is so sweet. I remember picking wildflowers with my little ones.
    It is one of the most lovely times to spend with your child.
    I so miss the little hands and studious faces bending over to get a better look.
    We always planted seeds and enjoyed much fun.

    cheers, parsnip

    1. I quite agree that the subjects of the portraits are novels in themselves.
      Are they Spanish or Eastern European? Failed to make of photographer's name or gallery...though I could walk there! mea culpa.
      Yes, gardening with the kiddies is fun. Three rather over bright daffs in the vegetable patch that we planted in the fall are now impressively in bloom. Henry very thrilled.
      Happy weekend.

  4. So true about the stems:) I have received heads of scillas..imagine the impossibiities..
    It's finally starting to look a bit spring-like here.
    The sun feels like heaven.

  5. Elizabeth, I do love all these colors.

    The short stemmed marigold would have very on enough of them in a shallow container, and the drama will unfold.

    I also admire the oily reflections at Lukoil...remember when V Putin was in town for the gas station's grand opening. I am amazed that other NYC media have not covered this closing. Perhaps it is I who have missed the reporting. Dunno.

    Fun to see you this week, and wonderful to realize how many more sunny days are on their way.


  6. It looks like spring has well and truly sprung.

  7. Love it all, but that Trailor Park photo! Wonderful! xo

  8. Beautiful and bright, a feast for the eyes.

  9. Oh spring at last......the sun has been shining here too...such a difference!!

  10. Oh yes spring in NYC! I love these walk-about posts Elizabeth. Oh dear, I'm sure Buster doesn't mind terribly having an enforced culture boost. :)

  11. I always look forward to your street photography!! Spring in New York is so wonderful. We have our heat back on and Megan wore her winter coat to school today. Feels more like winter again!! : ) Have a beautiful weekend, Elizabeth!! xo
