I have returned to photoblog… hold your applause, longimanus. Let us see how this year will hold up. Of course… life is what we make it. And I intend to savor the gift of everyday life, and the potential glimpses it holds. yes indeed, it is the legendary Empire State Building. caught at a most opportune moment, i might add. my beloved Manhattan, taken near Madison Square Park, on early New Year's Eve. E 17th Street, near Union Square. I wrote- or finished, rather- one or two songs on this street, a few years back. Is Times Square trendy? When in Rome, do as the tourists do… even if I am not a tourist, I like what I like, and you know what? A decade of New York has not changed me- I do like Times Square. And I like this shot, even though it is sure to outrage Swedish photographers.
