Took most these photographs of Steam/Smoke Streaming from around the city in various locations specifically for this week’s challenge ephemeral
and added the light sabre on a knit blanket from home which is totally not with the NYC street scene but then
added the New York City store window with the Shadow Lettering from the light.
PROM 2015 It wil be here soon and then disappear in a blink.
A man and his dog. Central Park Sunday. He was calling and waving to his family. Before the Greek Parade on Fifth.
Is this a Basenji? no, says Dog Expert Juilia. Thanks She sent this pic of an Ibizan Hound
I asked these girls if they would pose with their selfie stick so I could show my high school students in photography class next week. Later I asked where they were from….. Long Island!

My sister and I had a good trip to MOMA, seeing the photographs and then a walk through to see Starry Night and some familiar favorites. We walked up Fifth Avenue and I spoke with the flag vendor near the Plaza Hotel and he liked the sock monkey on my lens.
Mary took me to see the snow leopard and their baby snow leopard at the Central Park Zoo. The fuzzy black feathered penguin who would drown if he fell in the water until his other feathers grow in.
We could hear marching band drums and Mary knew it was the parade. The Greek Independence Day Parade was in full swing marching up Fifth Avenue.
We walked toward the police barricades and watched the floats and I took a ton of photographs. We heard a lot of Greek being spoken, it was a nice family day, people calling to the parade participants and waving. Sunny but cold!
How some of the women marched in the fancy heels is beyond me.
This nice woman offered us two tickets to the Grandstand to view the parade but we were cold, too.
The owner let me take a close-up but the dog was more interested in the people walking by.
The photographer on the right was so friendly to me, telling me he wanted to be in two places at once- 79th Street where it ended.
7th Avenue South at Bleecker Street-

Thin NYC crust. Let the vacation begin.
First the rotated version.
Looks like the beach instead of the Pittsburgh Greenway Parking Lot.
and the original – with a bit of a blur on the PA license plate so no one is identifled
At least I think it’s Ken. Without clothes. Not sure of the message or meaning.
I’ve see plenty of stuffed plush on garbage truck fronts, especially in New York City.
Maybe I should rethink this post and title it Wordless Wednesday.
I love how some bloggers are so consistent- Six Word Saturday, Silent Sunday, Wordless Wednesday, TBT and the dependable Weekly Photo Challenge on Friday and so on.
But sometimes when I’m stopped at a red light I see something I can photograph in a blink. No rhyme or reason. It is just there.

Knowing what I know now, I want to try the light writing with my grandchildren again.
These photos from July 2013
Frozen in the moment. Still fresh, Magic.
I went back to an external hard drive and dug through archives
Looking for images that say fresh. I sure like to photograph my food. Scroll down for the fresh statue.

A very special wall- Forbes Field.
Forbes Field is long gone (1972)
-but the wall where the1960 World Series was won by Bill Mazeroski’s homerun stands.
It’s called the Greatest Homerun Ever. You can watch it at YouTube here
You can’t believe how many retaining walls there are in every neighborhood of the city.
