As I was walking toward this little grouping at Union Square today, I saw someone taking a picture of it and thought, aha! this could be my picture of the day! So I started to take the picture, standing next to the person I’d seen taking the picture … who told me I needed to make a donation in order to take a picture. Ha! That’s a new one: he was taking a picture to attract other people to take pictures, from whom he (the creator of the little tree people) could get some cash from displaying them! They’re actually a little goofy … but I did make a donation!
