Birds of a feather, flock together. Waiting for the horses to drop some grain. My sister spotted these pigeons on a traffic light post.
No zoom lens on the camera so my sister who had found the birds lined up on the pole, walked me across 59th Street into the Park. We were headed for the zoo.

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.

A late dinner after a long drive.
Thin NYC crust. Let the vacation begin.
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.

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.
mixing up paint in with the food theme
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.
Saturday moring around nine, I was driving through the Strip District and saw green in every direction.
Ahhh, St.Patrick’s Day Parade!
How could I have forgotten. Parked the car and got out in the rain and realized all I had was my cell phone camera.
Everyone was so nice when I asked if I could photograph them. The rain didn’t dampen their spirits.
Twenty-seventh parade !

Hanging up green merchandise. Love the shades.
The Parade Marshall. He thought I was lost. So nice.
This group has placed first in their category!

Made the decision to turn right at the mouth of the Liberty Tunnel, go to Mount Washington and photograph the city in fog on the way to school this morning.
I thought the above shot was best with the gift of light on the incline car, as it prepared to head down the mountain. No tripod although there was a man with one. I stabilized my camera on the iron fence.
Of course, the light changes every moment as the sunrises in the east. All shots taken with 24-70 lens on the Canon 5D Mark ii
One vertical shot. Light and dark/ Cloud and shadow.
Trying to get the best view in the frame.
Being there. looking at the city in the fog, was a magnificent experience. The limits of photography.
It felt like being in a plane but you’re standing on a concrete platform by the incline, looking at the city disappear in a foggy sea. Wasn’t it just last week I was photographing the icy river and the barge lane? Today felt like early Spring.
