This is an image from 2008 during an overnight in New York City. I’m not sure where they are from but something in their faces tells me they are not from the city.

Whispering a secret in front of the Red Lobster in New York City.
As of August 2008, New York City has 5,538 highrise buildings, with 50 completed skyscrapers taller than 656 feet (200 m). This is more than any other city in United States, and second in the world behind Hong Kong. This image of the GE building taken from 5th avenue last November when Kirsten and I had a long overnight. The GE Building is an Art Deco skyscraper that forms the centerpiece of Rockefeller Center in Midtown Manhattan. The 70-story building is the 9th tallest building in New York City and the 32nd tallest in the United States. One thing about Midtown Manhattan is the lack of horizons. You will find yourself almost always looking up.
I can’t let Paul have all the fun with black and white street shots. So here is one from New York City a few weeks ago. Of course this one was not taken with an M6. 🙁 I don’t remember where I found her but she had her own little place on the street.
While making my latte this morning I grabbed one of my favorite cups and thought of my friend Beth. I smiled. Since then she has come to mind throughout the day. I remember our talks, the trip to NYC when her daughter sang at Carnegie Hall, the carriage ride through Central Park, seeing the Phantom of the Opera, sharing a bottle of wine and the time we watched the fireworks from the top of her moms house. What a gift those experiences are to me. But what really has touched me today is her simple gift of the four coffee mugs. I’ve had them for 5-6 years now. I like them and use them almost everyday. When I’m in a mindful place while making my latte, I think of her and lift up prayers or positive thoughts for her. And, of course I smile! Continue reading »
If you’re into wines then I suggest visiting the Morrell Wine Bar & Cafe in New York City. It is located at One Rockefeller Plaza. As part of our wandering around the city this past week, Kirsten and I came across this place. She had talked earlier about drinking a glass of wine at an aoutdoor table overlooking the plaza and Morrells fit the bill. We went inside to get her wine and I noticed this woman sitting at the bar enjoying her glass of wine and emailing with her PDA. It made for an interesting photo so I asked if I could take her photo. As with most people when you ask them they want to know why and this can lead into some good comversation. The three of us had a good conversation and I got more than one photo of her. We shared a bit about each other and why we were there and where we were going. We discovered this is one of her favorite places when she visits New York CIty. I am embarassed as I did not get her name. Anyway, as you can tell from this photo there are some beautiful people in New York City.
