Gettin' jiggy on the A

I meant to post this image last weekend but life has been busy lately. I'm really looking forward to finishing this Psych class I'm taking at Lehman College.

Image taken last weekend on the A Train.

Boy Scout

I saw this character and his dog crossing 32nd Street this afternoon. He reminded me of one of my parent's nativity scene figurines; the shepherd who carries a lamb draped over his shoulders. I knelt down and snapped a few quick photos of him and his little friend and on the last shutter release, he looked over and smiled at me. I got up smiling and said "take care" as my wife and I made our way down the 7th Avenue.

I didn't realize until I got home, that he and his dog were not alone. I noticed the woman standing next to him and that, like a gentlemen, he had given her his arm. Perhaps he was carrying her blue bag as well? Is it his mother? His girlfriend? A random stranger?

He's just another particle in the construct of this great city, like his shirt says: NEW YORK FUCKIN' CITY!

Red Hook Part Deaux

One more from a visit to the Red Hook Grain Terminal in Brooklyn this past weekend. Haven't been there since December.

Nighty Night

I've been taking a Psychology class at Lehman College in the Bronx this month. (A 3 credit class crammed into one month; wish me luck) Each night I get out of class at 10:00pm I can't help but frame scenes around the campus in my mind. The other night I took my camera and tripod and had a short period of fun before Campus Security forced me to stop. I was only able to pull off one capture that I'm fairly pleased with.
Here is an additional shot of this building taken head on.
