Men at Work and Weather Watching

I'm afraid I have become rather neglectful of this blog since I'm really having more fun with Instagram -where I'm Biffwix (my childhood nickname).
Anyway, I'm still taking photos while wandering round the city.

Here a young man is being instructed in the tricky art of poster hanging. An elegant process - best done very swiftly like watercolor painting. Looks easy but it isn't!

Delivering scaffolding near the car wash seen below.

Quintessentially New York colors - harsh and bright.

Gosh, what a lot of building round here. This near the new 7 line subway stop at Hudson Yards taken on a very brisk, cold day.

Here the police chatting and drinking coffee on Penn Station. There are always lots of policemen there and soldiers (of both sexes) and also State Troopers with their strange hats. I asked my husband if there are women State Troopers and he said there were though I have never seen one.

Ah! Spring in the city. Here blossoms on our roof...

storm clouds at Jamaica Station

and looking west from our apartment.

Pigeons in the almost budding trees in Penn South...

And, yesterday, real leaves unfolding on the climbing hydrangea at the mysterious house on 21st Street that I dream of living in one day.
