(March 14 & 16) I am now a 5 mile walk to the train. Woe is me.

mt. sinai harbor
The journey starts out in Miller Place.

they're really just big tailpipes
Off in the distance, you can see the smokestacks from the Port Jefferson Power Station, a few blocks from where I lived for eight years.

no gassing allowed
The geese are safe from Michael Bloomberg here

sign not withstanding
It looks a lot more rural here than it really is

this sign either
No hunting. But really, it’s suburbia, honest!

drive shaft
Someone had a really lousy day.

hulk smash!
Lousy enough to make them very angry. But that didn’t change the fact this is a very dangerous road.

it just doesn't have what it takes i guess
And the weathervane has gone down again

ladder co.
Apple’s on fire! … just kidding. Maybe Tony stopped by.

this news surprises no one
The city has crabs.

laurence, get your ass to the meeting!
I passed by the House of Viza, but he was not there.

and metallic
The flowers seem somehow much larger this spring.

(June 26) Viza and I went to a presentation at the Marriott Marquis, and then afterward to cleanse ourselves of Times Square, we walked over to the High Line. I like the park, but it seems to me the view is more interesting than the park itself. I’m not sure if that’s what they intended or not.

You can still (barely) see the tracks

the original air train
In 2010, it’s hard to imagine locomotives several stories overhead

teh viza
Mr. Trains

sailing down the hudson
New Jersey. You don’t want to go there. Nobody does.

even the sun can't bear to look directly at jersey

meat packing district
I wonder what it costs to live in those apartments

apparently the stop sign here is optional
While we were there, I counted dozens of cars, mostly cabs, running the stop sign.

and the hotel actually encourages flashers
The ExhibitionistStandard Hotel is built above the High Line and offers parkgoers a free peep show.

(May 31) Went back out to take in the event known as Manhattanhenge.

I found the magic spot!

A small crowd gathered here at the bridge over 42nd St.

Back down at street level, slightly after the event

There’s a good view of the Chrysler Building here

And then it was over, until July.

(May 30) Scoping out a celestial event taking place on the 30th and the 31st.

plane killers
The geese were on patrol, seeking their revenge on Capt. Sullenberger.

ima scareds
99 cent pizza!?

not manhattanhenge
If I hadn’t missed it, I would have seen something here


the bright lights of 42nd st. in twilight
This made me think of Deejay.

There’s been unsurprisingly few photos since late last year. A few things have happened though that got recorded for posterity. From March until about mid-April…

the elephants

The Elephant Walk. It’s the first time I’ve really felt let down by my camera.
It just wasn’t up to the task of photographing moving circus animals at night.

dunno, it\'s art

Anyone know what this is?

err.... yeah.

Do your domping somewhere else!

signs, signs, everywhere there\'s broken signs...

This is basically what our society has come down to as well.


Larry gave a vizalin performance in mid-April.
