The colors in this sunrise inspired me to pull out my camera! I liked the silhouette of the water tower on the right against the sky. I hope you enjoy a wonderful weekend! I'll be traveling next week, so I won't be able to post, but I'll be back!

Going back into my older photos I found this one of a group of statues from a park near Christopher Street in Greenwich Village. They almost seem frozen in time, or are about to come to life. Hopefully I'll be able to find the time to take some new photos one of these days!

New York has so many interesting and beautiful buildings, both old (or relatively old) and new. I don't know what building this is as I took this photo last year sometime, but I like the details and the perspective. I don't even know if it is a residence or an office building. It looks pretty nice though.

I'm really scraping the bottom of the barrel as far as pictures go again. I just haven't had time to take any! I did snap a photo of this corner fruit and vegetable store and wasn't quite sure what was going on with the rubber gloves hanging there filled with water. Any ideas? I wish you a good week ahead.

Our local French Institute is sponsoring a festival called Crossing the Line , which kicked off on Saturday with a dance party in Central Park. Here is a description of the event from their website http://www.fiaf.org/: "Le Bal NYC opens with a dance party/picnic in Central Park’s East Meadow. Choreographers from France, including Germaine Acogny, Odile Duboc, Latifa Laâbissi, and Olivier Dubois present a fresh new take on the bal populaire, creating short dances to be taught section by section to the public." These are the dancers demonstrating a work by the choreographer Latifa Laâbissi that the audience later learned. It was a fun event!

I happened to be near the Broadway Bridge the other day as the subway was crossing over and a Circle Line boat was going underneath. The Broadway Bridge crosses the Spuyten Duyvil creek at the northern tip of Manhattan, linking the Manhattan neighborhood of Inwood with Marble Hill in the Bronx. (Although people have told me that Marble Hill is technically still Manhattan.)

I spent a great day at the U.S. Open tennis tournament this past weekend. It was very exciting to see a lot of great tennis, though I didn't take so many photos. Did you know they toss a coin to decide who serves first. This is the coin toss before the match between Robin Soderling from Sweden on the right and the American Sam Querrey on the left. Soderling won the match. It was great fun!

This picture combines the object-filled window and the reflections from the street. For me it's hard to tell what's in the window and what's in the reflection. I think it was on Madison Avenue somewhere. Have a good weekend everyone! Here's to the end of summer and happy labor day. See you Tuesday.

Many of the subway stations in New York have interesting mosaics. These birds were at the 81st street station on the B,C lines on the west side of Manhattan. That's the stop for the Museum of Natural History, thus the animal theme. They had some lovely mosaics along the platform.
