Union Square

I just wrote about a lot of the things I liked about New York. Something I loved about New York was its eccentricity. If time and weather allowed, I walked as often and as far as I could just so I could see what I could see. And thanks to modern technology, I always had a camera on me. Here are some of my favorite moments, many of which I’ve already posted to Facebook and Twitter, but together here for posterity.

And, of course, you can see a lot more of these kinds of photos from a number of other contributors over at my art photography site, Pretty Trashy Art.

I snapped this after the NYC Food Film Festival in Long Island City — but didn’t even notice at the time that she had such nice headlights

Christmas in the West Village — I can’t remember if that was a skeleton or a mannequin, but thankfully, not a person

Photobucket
A sign in Chinatown — one of my favorite commenters noted “no wonder there are no red dragons in Manhattan”

Toilet paper reigns, at Girl Talk in Brooklyn

Again, I didn’t even notice at the time, but I got the biggest kick out of this woman — she hates bubbles!
