When I walked out this morning, Washington Square North was lined with all kinds of classic old cars … and people were walking around in fifties-style attire … turns out a movie was being shot! I got my own shot of the cute car above (a Lark, I think?) and then got one of the auto below in the afternoon. Also: look how sunny!
Photos featuring interestingly placed balloons seem to have become a regular occurrence lately in these pages! This one was taken right around 5:00 PM when this statue of Cervantes was in rapidly deepening twilight, giving him and his balloon an even more dreamy look. It seems fitting that he should have one (a balloon), what with his having written Don Quixote!
This doorway is surrounded by a little bit of everything, style-wise, I think!
Sliced blood oranges, fennel (plus fennel fronds), red onion, walnuts, and olive oil (allowed to sit together for awhile) … on a bed of spinach. Delicious!
Some people would know exactly what kind of flowers these shoots will are promising … the rest of us will get to find out!
Putting my Christmas haul to use! 🙂 Also: see the finally completed comments on the most recently posted original Boomerang here.
A plaque from the wonderful The Beautiful Brain exhibit going on now at the NYU Art Gallery, featuring drawings by Santiago Ramón y Cajal. Along with a description of the drawing it accompanies, the plaque has a great quotation from Cajal:
Like the entomologist in search of colorful butterflies, my attention has chased, in the gardens of gray matter, cells with delicate and elegant shapes, the mysterious butterflies of the soul, whose beating of wings may one day reveal to us the secrets of the mind.
Lovely! Read all about the exhibit at this site here.
