Happy New Year

Happy New Year!

2015 - it was only yesterday that we were all worried that the computers would all crash as the new century arrived. Instead all sorts of other things happened - both good and bad. I imagine that this fire hydrant, like me, has lived through it all. I found the festive glasses abandoned on the street.

We have now lived  for 17 years on 23rd Street (well, fifteen if you deduct the two in Morocco). This shot is from a friend's apartment looking down to Petland Discounts...

Flowers in mid winter - at the very luxe Dean and Deluca.

This taken on the evening of Christmas Day from the roof looking south past the Google Building to the new Freedom Tower.

Last -  light reflected through a prism. I hope to keep spotting the lovely, the unexpected and the trivially important in the coming year and hope to keep visiting your blogs too, to get glimpses into other worlds. Happy 2015.


  1. I adore the Christmas evening photo and the prism sweetie.
    Dean and Deluca is a lovely shop. I drool looking at the catalog every year.
    The Happy New Year glasses are very stylish.

    cheers, parsnip

  2. I wish you all the best for 2015 .... Many thanks for sharing your pics with us .... Have a lovely day !

  3. Oh Elizabeth, with this splendid collection of photographs, you've gotten this new year 2015 off to a very fine start.

    Fun to have the feeling of being aloft, too!

    I look forward to seeing you soon. xo

  4. Lovely photographs Elizabeth - especially that last one - not so much the prism as the dear little boy (grandson)

  5. Rainbow antlers, how lovely.

    Happy New Year, Elizabeth!

  6. I hope this new year brings with it loads of adventure and happiness and Buster wags. Of course the children!!! So much love to you and best wishes!

  7. Happy New Year! I love all these but I think my favourite is the one out of your friend's window. Brilliant. x

    1. Yes, Margaret's apartment is full of 19th century china - and the street below is very 21st century!
      are you still freezing in Devon?

  8. Fabulous...I really hope I make it back for a visit to NY this year.........happy new year!!
