This is an art shot. Can’t you tell? No, I didn’t take it while riding in a moving car down the bumpy streets of Manhattan and that’s why it’s crazy like that. It’s crazy like that because it’s ART.
We had great time, though the heat and humidity were Texas-bad. We moved to Central PA three years ago, and I am no longer used that heat anymore! I felt many times as though I might be havin’ a Southern-belle-style sinkin’ spell, and I might oughtta lie on my faintin’ couch and sip a mint julep.
Or at least a bourbon and coke.
I recovered, however, and took this photo of the Statue of Liberty from Battery Park. Kinda blurry, but not bad for digital zoom.
and now for the BIRD PHOTOS!
I had always heard that there are all kinds of hawks and other birds flying around New York. We didn't see any of those. Here, however, is a rather dark photo of two robins.
I also snapped some pigeons and starlings having a snack in Central Park.
We didn't see any nesting redtailed hawks or anything. I was a little disappointed. And the ice cream sandwich I bought for FOUR DOLLARS had been in that guy's little freezer thing for at least ten years, I'm sure of it. It was like eating a cold, vanilla-flavored rock. but we were in New York!
That gave it some flair.
Finally, I leave you with a photo of some Canada geese who, along with us, were quite surprised to find that the malls in New Jersey are closed on Sunday. What is this, the 70s? Blue laws?
We found these guys hanging around an empty parking garage at a mall in Passaic.
Here they are, taking advantage of all the great parking!
"Hurry, I think they're having a sale at Barney's!"
