waiting


that big guy
 was 
keeping his eyes
 on the door

where's my person
clearly on his mind

sprinkler fun


one of the perks 
of 
walking vs subway or bus
stopping and snapping


these kids were having fun 
running chasing one another 
through the sprinklers 
in the playground

finally!

i think
 of
 all the fridays 
between 
memorial day and labor day
 as
 my fridaycations

its a fabulous perk
 to 
take fridays off for 3 months 

to sleep in on a friday morning
 is 
by far
 more enjoyable than ... well than a lot of other stuff

over the years
 i have almost always
 had 
something 
planned to do

i have
walked across the brooklyn bridge
photo hunted along riverside park south
searched for access to the little red lighthouse
shopped at ikea
walked the mosaic trail in alphabet city
spent the day on coney island
etc 
etc

you get the idea

well this summer 
not so much

i am not sure why 
i have been unmotivated
but 
this past friday 
that changed

a friend i met on instagram
(she posts as @pepster3rd)
took half a day off 
we had lunch
we walked
from
 79th street
 up
 to 
113th street/amsterdam avenue
to 
photo hunt
 on 
the grounds
 of
the cathedral of st john the divine




a summer day camp is in session from 8-6
 so 
we couldnt roam around the grounds
as much as we'd have liked
but 
we did enjoy ourselves


there are 3 peacocks
mr phil, jim and harry
in residence
we only saw two

mr phil


either jim or harry 


the walk up and back
round trip 68 blocks or 3.4 miles
yielded a lot of photos

this week that's what i am sharing



best friends


spotted on the uptown local
not clear 
where 
they were going or coming from 
but
it was clear 
they are best friends

venting


the lower portion
 of 
one world trade
 a green building
has 
louvers 
vents

it also serves as a mirror
reflecting
the surrounding buildings

water tower wednesday


august 
is 
a temperamental month

yes 
i am complaining

i love fall 
but
this faux fall w/rain is not fun

that water tower
 was 
a bonus catch

i was trying
 for
 an interesting pov
 of
 the fire escape 
on the backside
 of 
the beacon theatre!
