NEW YORK, NEW YORK – A boring day from a photographic standpoint. I was busy at the office and outside the light was dull. On the way home I shopped for groceries for a lunch on Saturday. Here is an image of the packed refrigerator. No one said that a photo every day would be easy.
NEW YORK, NEW YORK – Back in New York. While walking back from the west side (where I had left my car for service) a came across Carnegie Hall in dappled light. This is a side-on view from Sixth Avenue. From the Wikipedia entry on Carnegie Hall:
“Designed by architect William Burnet Tuthill and built by philanthropist Andrew Carnegie in 1891, it is one of the most famous venues in the United States for classical music and popular music, renowned for its beauty, history and acoustics. . . . Carnegie Hall is one of the last large buildings in New York built entirely of masonry, without a steel frame; however, when several flights of studio spaces were added to the building near the turn of the 20th century, a steel framework was erected around segments of the building. . . . A venerable story has become part of the folklore of the hall: A New Yorker (or in some versions Arthur Rubinstein) is approached in the street near Carnegie Hall, and asked, “Pardon me sir, how do I get to Carnegie Hall?” He replies, “Practice, practice, practice.””
