Noticed this beautiful work of art on the subway this morning. Such a beautiful representation of the different array of subway riders. Loved it!

The following text excerpt is from Sophie Blackall's Blog
Needless to say I love the subway. I glean all my characters from my fellow passengers. The same sorts of things which attracted me to Missed Connections, I find on the train: subtle interactions, eccentricity, beauty, sorrow, secrets, kindness, generosity, excellent hairdos. Every sort of person imaginable and unimaginable. For this poster, I measured my allotted space very carefully and figured out I had enough space to draw 34 people. I had to whittle and whittle my list of favorite characters. The surfer standing with his board in a puddle of water didn't make it. Neither did the gorgeous elderly drag queen, the man with the enormous orange velour armchair or the disheveled mermaids. I'm sorry. I still love you. Read more here.

New York City has so many nooks and crannies to discover. On a late night walk around the Flatiron District, I was introduced to this charming store - Fishs Eddy!  If you're looking for a unique item to deck out your kitchen or heighten your dining experience in an inexpensive way, this is the place to go to. I can't wait for my next visit there to take more pictures and ofcourse pick up a few items. Enjoy some of the pictures from my debut visit :-)

Halloween in the Village

Halloween fell on a chilly Sunday. But we were all in for a treat! We spent hours watching people in absurdly crazy, gory, creative and down right funny costumes. It was so much fun watching adults become kids :-)  Halloween just made number one on my list of most fun holidays.

Here are a few pictures of the parade on 6th avenue. Enjoy!

The sun and the clouds compliment our cities in such a beautiful way. They tell an amazing story together. Here are a few of my favourite shots of their affair...
