NEW YORK NEW YORK – More Alice Aycock sculpture on the Park Avenue islands. I’ll be coming back to these from time to time. And of course Second Avenue, which is always messed up by subway construction.

Day 1,618 of one picture a day for the rest of my life.

TURKS AND CAICOS – I got bored with the beach today so I found myself without a picture fairly late in the day. Got this with my iPhone in a friend’s apartment complex. I’m showing it in the original color and translated into black and white.

Day 1,603 of one photo a day for the rest of my life.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – It’s literally too cold to go out. So I collected a couple of candidates for shot of the day from around the house, taking breaks from sitting in front of a fire and reading. Here’s a plate on a wall in the kitchen. It’s from New Mexico, from the Acoma Pueblo which produces brilliant art. Taken with my Sony Alpha 7 and a Leica Summicron lens.

Day 1,564 of my daily photo blog. Some people call these “phlogs”.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Walking down Park Avenue very early this morning (6:00 AM . . . really) I spotted this very large number five in the window at the Phillips auction gallery. This sort of display is thought to burn a work for serious collectors – I wonder why Phillips did this?
