These are the beautiful library lions
in front of the NY Public Library. In
the 1930s, during the Depression,
Mayor Fiorello La Guardia named them

This one was shot along the banks of the Tiber River,
in Rome. I took it on 3/20/2003, the day the U.S.

My green things: grasses at the Greenmarket,
my brother Chris on drums, some NYC cops

Wanted to keep this to four photos,
and had a hard time choosing just
four. But here they are: a pink house
(with matching laundry) on the island
of Burano, near Venice; cherry blossoms
in full bloom at the Brooklyn Botanic
Garden; my mom's amazing 56-year-old

Mary enjoying her 1st birthday cake.

My favorite "silver" edifice in NYC, the
