New York City
July 2004

We spent a weekend in "New York City?" after a show week and stayed in Midtown. After drowning in the rain on Friday night, Saturday threatened rain but it never materialized. We slept until 11am and went for a long walk down 5th Avenue. There are several themes from this weekend, among them, yellow. 

(as usual, click on the little picture to see the big picture)

Pictures from New York City
WSmith1.jpg (56394 bytes)
The Smith Family Reunion was hanging around the Hot Tix booth in Times Square. After watching them try and take pictures, I offered to do a group shot. 
WSmith2.jpg (49647 bytes)
You know the Smith's have been in New York too long because the girl on the right asked me, "How Much?" when I told her I'd take the photo. 
WVerizon.jpg (51132 bytes)
I fell in love with yellow telephones. I found four of them at the corner of 7th and 34th. 
WYellowPhone.jpg (26667 bytes)
This was the seminal yellow phone. Actually, it was the one next to this one but the image came out blurry.

I like the hand holding. 
WYellowBag.jpg (57195 bytes)
Two yellow bags at one street corner. Who could calculate the odds?

This is called Great Sax.

This is at 38th and 8th. Again, yellow.

Not Hot.

This idiot turned the wrong way on 8th Avenue and had to turn around in the cross walk.

5th Avenue at 35th Street

DJ stopped to buy shoes and I thought it would be a few minute stop just as the previous ones were. I was wrong. After ten minutes, I started to look around the area and shoot photos from my vantage point just off the corner of 5th Ave and 35th Street. It was interesting to be in one space for a half hour and just look around. I found some interesting sights.

Lots of yellow here.

What caught my attention was the two little supports holding the air conditioner in the window.

Do you think she is a koket? Or do you think she is part of what's got to go?
