The pretty fall flowers were briefly covered up this weekend with a coating of snow. The storm was certainly unusual for this time of year. But hopefully it will melt quickly and we'll continue on with some more fall-like weather. Happy Halloween!

This is another shot I took on my trip to Cold Spring. I loved the colorful leaves surrounding the window. It might snow around here this weekend! Hopefully winter won't come that early. Have a great weekend.

And while I'm on the subject of public art....this was a statue I saw recently at the "New York Museum of Conan Art" a temporary exhibit in the Time Warner Center. It's all paintings and other works of art with the subject being the talk show host Conan O'Brien. This particular one is made of pencils (no idea who created it). I guess it will all be on TV soon as part of his show.

Crow and Apples

I seem to be taking a lot of photos of public art lately. This one is part of an exhibit sponsored by the Broadway Mall Association with sculptures all along Broadway by the artist Peter Woytuk. This particular one is at 79th and Broadway on the Upper West Side.

Cold Spring

This is a photo from another weekend trip I took recently. This is in Cold Spring, NY, just over an hour north of the city. They have gorgeous views of the Hudson River and the beautiful mountains on the other side of the river. I'd recommend a visit.

Start to fall

The fall colors are just now starting to appear in Central Park. In a few weeks the green will be all gone. These people on the bridge were enoying a beautiful fall day before the colder weather begins. Enjoy your weekend!

This is a section of the sculpture "Tornado" by the artist Michael Sailstorfer and is on display near the Plaza Hotel as part of the art in the parks program. I believe the sculpture is made of the inner part of tires. You can read more about the work here.

Red Bulls

These were the opening festivities at a professional soccer game I saw a few weeks ago in Harrison, NJ. It was a game between the New York Red Bulls and the Los Angeles Galaxy. It was the first professional soccer match I've seen (actually the first soccer match of any kind I've seen in person.) It was lots of fun!

Maine sunrise

Sorry for the long absence, things got busy! This is a photo I took from my time in Maine. The photo is sunrise over the cove and islands. What beautiful sights there are in Maine.
