No blogging today because I spent it in New York. Here are a few photos.
For starters, a graffiti-covered building which appears to have last housed a bread company near the turn of the century:
NOTE: As graffiti has now been linked to “mob violence,” that’s what I titled the picture.
Next, some red-eared slider turtles (grown versions of the little green ones once sold in pet stores) which live in a “green guerilla” park in the Bowery:
Echoing the reptilian theme, a gargoyle in an otherwise abandoned-looking store window:
And last but not least, a turn-of-the-century, classical-meets-modern sculpture near Penn Station:
That’s it for today!
