NEW YORK NEW YORK – Weird. You take a month’s break from visiting a place, you come back, and it’s entirely changed.  Tom Sachs’s sculpture, Hello Kitty, has been in the courtyard of Lever House for longer than I’ve been photographing for this blog. Now it’s gone, so it’s “bye bye Hollo Kitty”. Here are some links to some earlier Hello Kitty photographs: July 6, 2010, May 11, 2010, April 20, 2010, and March 19, 2010

I guess I really like Hello Kitty. The little gold doodad that replaced Hello Kitty appears to be a part of a much larger installation by Rachel Feinstein entitled “The Snow Queen”. Photographed with my Leica M9 and a 28mm Summicron lens.

On this day last year: an infrared image including the Racquet and Tennis Club, the Seagrams Building and One Park Avenue Plaza.
