Old, new, and newer, November 23, 2017
I think possibly three out of the newer buildings in this photo weren’t here the last time I walked on the High Line (?) … or maybe they were being built — especially the one with the orange and yellow bits near its top, which is still under construction. Also, what a gorgeous day, eh? Seasonably crisp too (low 40s when this photo was taken). And speaking of old and new, find a more close-up contrast of the two in the photo below.

And the High Line also has its less-traveled and less “improved” sections … the photo below was taken on the stretch that’s just over 12th Avenue, looking south where the path is turning east (find map here), back towards the tall buildings in the first photo above. I definitely met my 10,000 step goal today!

Bright red leaves, November 22, 2017
I spotted these trees a few blocks away on my (previously mentioned) trip to the dentist’s today and plotted to go get a picture of them after my appointment. I wasn’t the only one taking pictures of them either! They’re in front of the famous and venerable Bellevue Hospital, which you can get a better sense of in the picture below (the trees above were over to the right of the area captured in the picture below). Read all about Bellevue Hospital here.

Abundance! November 21, 2017
I walked by this mural the other day around dusk when it was a little late for a photo to do it justice, so I went by again today and got a picture of it. It wasn’t until I got home and looked at the photo that I saw the “La Newyorkina” in the pink on the upper right side and then (naturally) googled it, and voila: read all about it here. Tomorrow I’ll be getting on the subway whose entrance is under the green turret in the background to go to the dentist — a good chance to check out La Newyorkina’s menu!
Leafy awning, November 20, 2017
This luminous awning is provided in part by the same tree featured in this post here taken a week from today last year. I wonder if these leaves will be that far gone a week from today?
Green bike, November 19, 2017
It was the green of this bike that really caught my eye, and then, upon further examination, the retro script of “Schwinn” also stood out. I also had plenty of time to admire it while waiting for folks who were talking behind the white car across the street to get out of the picture. When you live in a big city, avoiding having random people in your pictures does sometimes require patience!

A row of trees on Fifth Avenue wrapped in white lights … complemented by red and yellow stop lights — the holidays are coming!
Decorative parrot, November 17, 2017
A cute little parrot, found today in the margin of a photograph I have of a page from a medieval manuscript (found in the process of going through a wee stack of CDs I have with images on them): fun!
