All in New York City

Hey Gene, Is It Loaded?

Suddenly, out of nowhere, I see former KISS co-founder, Gene Simmons, strutting down the street dressed in black and wearing model studded boots.  All that security is not for him, but that doesn't stop him from enjoying the stage as he struts his celebrity.  New York's finest are enjoying the spectacle, as Simmons poses for photos with dozens of cops.  

120mm

Two days in New York, and one 120mm lens.  That was the right lens this past weekend.  Although there were short spells of blue skies, for the most part, the sky was white or middle gray.  None of my landscape shots worked, which I knew would be the case, but when I am there, I gotta try anyway.  Close ups were the order of the day.

Enchantment

Saturday morning, New York City, Central Park, Bethesda Fountain, Fall.  The smart looking street musician caught my attention.  Gotta love the scarf, glasses, and exquisite beard.  Performing Cat Steven's Morning Has Broken to nobody, although his collection plate was overflowing with money.  And then this couple arrived, hardly noticing the musician, but they certainly noticed each other.
