Serenity - continued. Finding photos to go with this week’s theme has been satisfying. Thanks for looking at today’s gallery of images that feel peaceful in a variety of ways.
Eighteenth century figures. From my recent visit with my sister.
Merry Christmas 2014.
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Yellow.”
Yes, they said they threw us a curveball with the challenge for yellow right in the midst of silver and red and green holiday colors. No lemons available in the house.

I ordered a piece of New York Cheesecake when I visited my sister in NYC. With the fresh fruit on top. A generous amount that contrasted nicely with it.
There is no crust.
I thought it tasted really good and had a smooth texture, satisfying and rich but not too rich or sweet.
Mary said when she took a spoonful, it felt like she was biting into a block of cream cheese.
Her pastry looked delicious, filled with ricotta.
Here is the piece I ordered and ate, almost to the last bite.
Just wondering how you feel about cheesecake?
My sister-in-law Bobbie has a great recipe I have baked for parties over the years and guests devour it.
That is, if they like cheesecake.

One more gallery of New York City. I’ve been home a week.
By looking at the photographs, I’m still enjoying the time I had with my sister.
I was a tourist for sure!

“By covering surface of an object with transparent glass beads, the existence of the object itself is replaced by “a husk of light”, and the new vision “the cell of an image” (PixCell) is shown.” Kohei Nawa (artist based in Kyoto)

Looks set up but this is just as Mary spotted it for me to photograph.
Right across from the building where the opening credits of Friends was filmed and tour groups flock.
And a tour group just a half block down the street on Grove.
Friday night the Metropolitan Museum of Art is open until nine.
We saw the tree lighting and walked through some of the major exhibits to check out others.
(the Christmas tee is another post, stay tuned) The Holiday Sugar Sculpture of the Museum was fun to see.

Because it was raining, I just got the fountains looking like this. Didn’t want to stand in the rain.
Information in the center of the lobby. You could smell the magnolias.
View from an upper window.

Credits to the pastry chef Randy Eastman and his assistants.
I try to keep up with my sister as we head for the subway. It was still raining. The magic of wet pavement.
