The annual New York City Dance Parade always serves up a wonderful cast of characters–and great color and exuberance as well.

Water, Abstracted

I call the nearby woods (where I walk the dog every morning when I’m in Connecticut) my church, but quite frankly I’m sick to death of photographing it. This is the most I could make of it on a gorgeous spring morning.

Intersection #1

Back to the same corner on 56th and Fifth that I photographed last week, I’m obviously attracted to the ordered chaos. Perhaps there is a project that will grow from here; a tad facile, perhaps, but I do have to take 50 to 100 shots to wind up with 2 or 3 worth posting. Whatever the case, the light here sure is gorgeous at 4:30 in the afternoon.

Magnolia and Cloud

A magnolia tree, a cloud, and a brilliant blue sky: after our long and brutal winter the beauty of spring is making me a little delirious.

A quick trip to Chicago to give my daughter a dose of motherly moral support…the sunset from my hotel room was rather lovely…and all I had time to photograph today.
