Steve received a gift box of apples from a former colleague. When he opened the box and placed it on the kitchen table, it looked like art to me. Found art?
Idared, Empire, Golden Delcious, and Winesap. An orchard from New York.
(my knitted scarf at the bottom, I’d just come home late from school due to my photographing the Winter Concert.)
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.
SO when did the inflatables show up on the lawns of America? During the day they lie flat. At night they whir and are filled with air, move a bit in the wind.
The first one found while pulled over to a curb on the North Side, checking directions on the travel app.

All taken this Tuesday evening – Some good for twinkle
and an old shot from a few years ago, one of my favorites
Caketopper in the St. Luke’s Thrift Shop on Hudson Street in Greenwich Village NYC
There was to be a Victorian Christmas Fair at St. Luke’s School on Saturday the 6th. Friday. preparations were in full swing.
I’d never heard of a ZOOBOT but read the listing on the poster at the gate.
Unfortunately, they had a very rainy day for the event.

NYC Tourist Gallery-Dog Lover Sweater, Grand Central I Love NY Tourism Window, Paddington Ad, The Crowd at Rockefeller Center and a Couple More Christmas Windows
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!

People like to photograph the Christmas windows.

PixCell-Deer#24, a Tiffany & Co. Christmas Window, Chestnuts Roasting and Sisters’ Selfie at Trump Tower
“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)

An eclectic mix of photos from New York City last weekend
Chestnuts Roasting on Firfth Avenue
Sisters Selfie at Trump Tower- trying to warm up
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.
Sunday Central Park Zoo - Sea Lion Pool at Feeding Time
The photographs can’t really capture the exuberance and energy of these lovely sea lions who were waiting for the keepers to come with their lunch.
“These are not tricks. They are behaviors” one of the zoo workers said.
The sea lions certainly knew it was time to eat.
The whole time we were there, I was wishing my grandchildren could see the sea lions jump.
The light changed frequently.
You can see the sun went behind a cloud. The one sea lion was talking to the man who was sweeping.
And then the sun came out again as we walked towards Fifth Avenue
