24 Inch Ice Cream Cone, Guest Blog

Waiting for recycle truck pick-up, New York City. Sent by my sister 7-4-16 via cell phone.

What a great find. Thanks, Mary.


Looking in the Archives 

Do you ever go back and examine a series of photos you took, at least a decade ago? Maybe your camera was low-end or you didn’t have a perfect lens.  The weather was gray.

When I look at New  York Spring, I see my sister’s guidance and spotting cool things for me to photograph- help capture signage and scenes in her neighborhood, before they disappear. Signs. Lots of signs. 

I try to keep the blog in Real Time but this is looking back and no, I’m not in NYC tonight.

Missing Degas by a Day

Dance Dance Dance
The Dancers. All those ballerinas. I had a framed print on my childhood wall.
I’m visiting my sister but Wednesday we’re headed to family in Ohio.
On Monday at MOMA, I read signs of the Edgar Degas exhibit which previews the day we leave the city-glimpses of what I’d miss were represented in the gift shop.

Degas dancers on bookmarks,stationery, prints to be framed, journals, magnets, a children’s book. Not a mug in sight! 

  The entrance to the exhibit, cordoned off until tomorrow for members.


  


Full Moon Through NYC Window

It was a beautiful shot.  I just couldn’t capture it adequately through the glass.


Wagonful of Grass on Grove Street

Wagon full is Wagonful.        I looked it up.

Grove Street near Bleecker in the West Village, New York City.  I hope they add some eggs. 

  
How about that wagon?
