A Week of People

6th Avenue and 17th St.

This week a collection of the people I've run into on my wanderings round the city. The first holiday season Salvation Army bell-ringer --a welcome sight. I so much prefer giving cash straight away anonymously than getting signed up on things for ever.

23rd Street

Fire Department guys checking the hydrant. How we New Yorkers love them!

Children at the Union Square green market learning about yoghurt.

23rd Street. M23

Evil woman on the bus talking extra loud on her phone about Brad. Does she think that if she looks out of the window the rest of us can't hear her? Hm.....

Guys in HazMat suits cleaning up an art gallery on 23rd St. 

22nd Street and 10th Av.

A photo shoot about to happen at what used to be the Empire Diner. Maybe now the High Line Diner.

Subway to Spring Street.

A nun on a damp afternoon round the back of London Terrace.

Poor lonely security chap at what will be the new doctors' office on 23rd Street.....when they finish it up. 

Who on earth can this be on the subway in Queens? Gosh. So I ask her if I can take her photo and she says they are on their way to perform in Central Park. Perform what? I don't think I'll ever know.*

And last of all a funny face to wish everyone a most
