monochrome weekend

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
Patience (seen here in the foreground)
and Fortitude, two traits New Yorkers
needed then—as we do again now.

weekend reflections

It's the old reflected in the new on 42nd
Street. (The reflective building is the Hyatt
Hotel right next door to Grand Central).

Monochrome Weekend

I found this precious little putti in
a church in Rome. He's probably been
there for centuries, but he looks just
like the child of a friend of mine!

weekend reflections

Here we are at "the world's largest store."
Normally, I avoid it like the plague at
this time of year—made an exception,
though, to take some pix of their
holiday decorations.

monochrome weekend

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.
rolled into Iraq. Who even imagined we'd still be
there almost 7 years later?
