Only in NY can you exit your apt window bum-crack first and do your nails whilst on the phone and sunbathing.
This is Louise and Bettina at the Daschund day at Washington sq park.
NYCgirl and Bettina with Chef and personality Anthony Bourdain.
I didn't go mad taking photos of weenie dogs but this one stole my eye for a little while...
Yes they are all Daschund owners or fans - a little bewildering but good fun none the less
such a lovely side street that was gated - if Bettina didn't take us down here I would never have had the cohones to enter.
another tall portrait of the city - I just can't help every now and then taking one.
Welcome to the market...
Heavy buddha action going on here - Bettina wanted to take a little but deceptively heavy one with her
crowds of folks enjoying the bric-a-brac and nonsense on sale.
works a little better in sepia where colour and contrast dont matter half as much.
It was hard to get a good photo of the market because of the shade that purveyed most of the scene
I love this little shot of toys at a stall. I had to be quick as the stall owner was looking anxious..
We met Ben Kingsley in the undergrowth...
There's nothing like a big pile of knobbly vegetables to amuse the eye
She wanted that one - no that one!
Swan-like vegetables - I was told the name - but got alittle to fascinated by what they looked like...
This one was bigger and knobblier than most of the batch - looks virtually pustulent!
Such a blaze of Autumn colours indeed
This is the last hours of the farmers market - lovely local produce
One trader with virtually full stall still! - either not very good - too expensive or a second wagon full of stuff
The fountain and the 'State...
Liked this photo at the time - I now like it less than I did..
Oh Yes - the person most unlikely to fill om Thumbs shoes - although it does look like someone's knocked me over and knocked my hat off.
Louise needs an ENORMOUS head top fill this hat up!
Welcome to Central Park Zoo area...
A lovely picture of two contented oldsters enjoying the dappled rays in the afternoon sun!
This looked MUCH nicer in real life than what the camera has actualy taken - hmm!
Lets play Jazz! - I suspect he had been photographed quite a lot over the years
I made a beeline to the wedding party at the far end of the fuontain area
A rather lovely and well presented bunch of outlaws with some expensive threads on for the day.
Quick look away - the photographer is staring at me!
another lovely photo of the mystery wedding party
Okay okay - I like taking wedding photos - can't help it!
Another wedding we stumbled upon in the park - hidden away near a secret little hideaway hut Bettina showed us
The guy on the left has been telported from a tarantino film - completely unrelated to the other characters...
The lone jogger against the world..
A rather uninteresting photo with little or no excitement
Ah but from the Duck's eyes looking up to the master - makes much more sense - thanks bettina...
