Me on Big Screen TV, Sort of

When I parked the car to go to coffee this morning, I saw this huge TV on the sidewalk, waiting for the trash.

(Another title could be Trash Selfie?)

The inviting scene as I parked the car.

Exactly as My Sister Spotted it on the Corner of Grove and Bedford Streets

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.

Light Patterns on Bloomfield Bricks

On the way home from school the light on this wall caught my eye so I pulled over to the curb.
I looked across the street and tried to determine what was making the reflection but I couldn’t discern what caused it.

This was the view opposite the light patterns.

Snowman Down

I haven’t written a lot about the weather on the blog.  Some blog readers live in a different hemisphere are enjoying summer temperatures and swimming.  I heard from K that it got up to 44, even if Florida.      Deb wrote that we’ve got ice on the rivers.

Storms, low temps, windchill? I know two people who had to get a new furnace.

Weather? You see it on the news.  The computer.  Experience it first hand. Shovel your driveway or your walks.  Listen for two hour delays or school closures.

Tying to not feel down like the snowman,  but hey, it’s WINTER!

Weatherman’s prediction is start at 4 AM and snow until 5 PM. Dress warmly.

My sister had 11 inches of snow in New York City.  What are you experiencing?

What I Saw on Reynolds Street Curb

 

 

 

 

After knitting at Ann’s, I drove her other friend to the Frick Market so she could order a fresh turkey.  Right across from Sterrett School.

And when I parked I saw all of these fine items waiting to picked up at the curb.   I talked to the people outside the market and they said they were going to be listed on Craiglist under CURB APPEAL

. It was the fake log fireplace and andirons that set the mood.

Style

New York City street shot from when I visited my sister last June.  

I was photographing people engaged with their technology-  they weren’t paying any attention to me or my camera   I think this woman was trying to get into the shade a bit to see her phone screen, reduce the glare.

 

Thoughts on style…………decorating, home, fashion, hair, writing-

What’s in style these days?

Have you ever been out of style?  

Did you ever cramp anyone’s style?

Do you know anyone whose style is stuck in another decade?        or maybe their style is making a comeback?

Who decides what’s in style or out of style?

What is  your style?
