New York People and a Short Journey


A different incarnation of the tax-flyer man, cheerful on a very cold day.

Is there light at the end of the tunnel? Subway at Penn Station.

A glimpse of yellow and very high heels on 8th Avenue.

The dog was so astonished at this trio....

... that we had to skip town and look back at the mysterious skyline from Jersey...

 ...and visit a very young gentleman upstate
and try out silly camera lenses....

...through the bus window.

This last photo, taken near Macy's on 34th Street is so trashy and brash,
I couldn't help but include it.



  1. I wish I had the money spent on blue dresses and foam liberty crowns. Those guys in blue drag must be EVERYWHERE.

    Buster has a right to be flabbergasted by the three in odd fashion, although I did like the yellow dress and the fine legs going into those high, high heels.

    Fun as always to get a view of your world through your lens. Hi! To Buster. I'm reading "The Art of Racing in the Rain." It makes me think of Buster a lot.

  2. Great - thanx for sharing!
    Miss NY sometimes.....

  3. The one photo of the trio reminded me of your little street garden. Is it still covered in 6 feet of snow ?

    cheers, parsnip

  4. That girl with the high heels is so stylish! I wish I could wear heels but I really can't-thye hurt too much. I have a couple of pairs but they don't come out often. Love the man in the statue of liberty costume and the colourful trio. Thanks for your comment earlier-I have heard of hipstermatic but don't know what it is! I am using photoshop elements and textures from Kim Klassen. All lots of fun!

  5. I always enjoy your pictures and captions. It literally takes me in a New York state of mind. I <3 NY!

  6. There's nothing like the diversity of New York for interesting photography. Such great fun.

  7. The tax man has a twin that lives in Kansas, who also braves any weather.

  8. Elizabeth, every one of these photos shows what a clear, open eye you have.

    Of course, my favorite features that noble nose of young Buster. I would also have been astonished.

    Let's hope it warms up a bit tomorrow.


  9. having difficulty reading the font- might just be my computer- Your photo journey is fabulous- I think that Buster is asking the guys how many brain cells do you have and they are telling him with hand language... That baby boy is too little to be be soooo walking!

  10. Interesting choice of pictures!

  11. Thanks once again for such a lovely slice of your New York. I look forward to it everyday!

  12. Thanks once again for such a lovely slice of your New York. I look forward to it everyday!

  13. I love your pictures; they bring me right back to a city that I loved years ago and miss very much!

  14. I really like your through the bus window photograph. I wonder if the windows were tinted? BB

  15. Wonder what the Statute of Liberty was all about!

    The dog says it all!

  16. I love your NYC photos. You completely capture the spirit of NYC. It's one of our favorite places to visit and your photos make me feel like I'm there. I saw one was taken in New Jersey. Have you taken the PATH from the WTC to the first stop (Exchange Place)? You can get some lovely shots of the skyline next to the PATH station.
