While Stopped on West End Bridge

There’s a stop light at the end of the bridge. When it was red, this was my vantage point of the city. Then I was joined by the silver car in the left lane.

Oh, Hello Linens Truck

I was parked on Butler Street in Lawrenceville.

My phone in hand.

A truck pulled up to the red light alongside my car -and stopped. I felt a presence. Looked up and out the driver’s window.

Oh, hello there!

Light turned green. The chef appeared. The truck pulled away into the flow of traffic.

La Esquina, New York City

CORNER   Ben H. at WordPress created the weekly photo challenge

La Esquina, New York City  114 Kenmare Street,  Soho – seemed a perfect response.

I was standing catty-corner(ed), watching traffic whiz by, taking a few photographs when I was visiting my sister.corner4 762corner3 761cornercorner2 760

I’m not in NYC today- from the archives.

Pulled up next to me at the red light

Last week in Columbus, I sat in the passenger seat with Laura at the wheel. Good thing. Brought that trusty phone up to my eye and I can’t really add him to my People at Work series

but perhaps Animals at Work in the city?

Oh hello there!

Goose Jam

Freeport Road in Aspinwall.  All traffic stopped.  No young geese splatted on this busy road today.  Goose is such a funny word.

And to make today’s post slightly more interesting check out TheFreeDictionary

goose

1. n. a silly oaf; an oaf. Oh, I’m such a silly goose!
2. tv. to (attempt to) poke something, such as a finger, in someone’s anus. Freddy tried to goose me!
3. n. an attempt to goose someone. (As in sense 2) He tried to give me a goose.
4. tv. to rev up an engine; to press down hard on the accelerator of a car. Why don’t you goose the thing and see how fast it’ll go?
5. n. an act of suddenly pressing down the accelerator of a car. Give it a good goose and see what happens.

 

Train Trestle in Traffic

Driving down the Parkway West as they call it (Route 376) the construction area provided lots of traffic.

Cars with brakes and I was able to photograph a scene I’ve just admired from the driver’s seat.

Train cars on the tracks were the added bonus.

Birds of a Feather

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.
