Having a wee look – Milkweed in Manhattan

with 2 comments

Visited the famed Highline Park in Manhattan last month – end of autumn, all the wild flowers gone to seed. A wee bit desolate. Snapped these two shots of milkweed – and a bunch of other stuff… but haven’t got to them yet. Had to share these… Manhattan1-15Manhattan1-13

The Concrete Jungle

with 4 comments

Echoes of those who came before… I spotted this frieze on an archway over the entrance to a building built in the 30s or 40s walking around lower Manhattan. There was a tonne of construction going on and the pedestrian walkway was eye level with the frieze – obscuring it with heavy fencing and other barriers. But I spotted it – much to the chagrin of my companion who shrugged and sighed and declared I took far too many photos of things I would not be the least bit interested in once I got home. (She was wrong.)

And I deeply, deeply appreciate, admire and respect the sense of humour of whomever authorised this whimsical little masterpiece.
