The last couple of days have been hectic, and yet to be honest, I probably wouldn’t have it any other way.
During my lunch break on Tuesday, I decided to go into Central Park, and as I was she w taking a picture, a young woman who was half Norwegian and half British, asked with if I could help her take a photo. I had at this point already taken the first photo of the day, and was quickly trying to calculate how far I could get into the park, back to the subway and then back to work — without being late. She saw that I had my trusty Canon T1i out, and she quickly guessed that I would have an idea of what to do. After I had taken a picture of her by the USS Maine Monument, I chatted with her for a few minutes and she seemed quite charming — she had the most unusual accent I’ve heard in quite some time, to be honest. Sadly, she was only in town for the day, and was on her way to the American Museum of Natural History. I went on to finish my photos for the day before having to rush back to my office.
This guy was right by Columbus Circle and several photographers and tourists stopped to take a photo of this man, dressed up as a robot. In an average day, I come across at least two of these guys, sometimes more if it’s a holiday season. But each of them is a unique experience.
Riding a Bike with a Flat Tire Results in Unusual Posture. Or so this marking seems to suggest.
Flat Bicycle Tire Leads to Loss of Limbs and Destroyed Face — Or Watch Out for Zombie Bicyclists. (Because Central Park has been overrun lately with zombies with bicycles — well, uhmm not really.)
Erin was here but what was the deal with the chalk drawing outline? Somehow, that struck me as strangely funny.
This robot was near 61st or 62nd Street, halfway between Central Park East and Central Park West. I love how he perfectly posed for me in a manner that suggest that this man has a mischievously side.
After work, I walked down to the Times Square 1,2,3, 7, A,C,E, N, Q and R station with the hopes of catching something interesting, when I caught a very good jazz and soul band performing by the 7 train station.
