Burn fat fast

The latest weight loss craze? Dr Oz has something to say. Seems there's something special about green coffee bean extract. Hell, to me there's something special about coffee in any form (except the way Starbucks makes it, yuck!)

As I walk around NYC I'm amazed at the shape of the world around me. OK, maybe I've been blessed (?) with obsessive/compulsive genes that get me up at 7am every morning and to the pool for my ritual one mile swim. I guess it's the same o/c genes that motivated me to practice violin five hours a day when I was a music student, or out on the street shooting and in a wet darkroom inhaling developer and fixer fumes so I could hone my craft as a photographer. I know everyone can't be the same as me. Thank God! Would be a pretty boring world.

But back to those tried and true good old American rural country values, I was at the Duchess County Fair in New York State several weeks ago. None of those trendy green beans here, it's french fries all the way! YEAH BABY!!!

Waiting for her prince

Friday was a heavy travel day for New Yorkers, before the long Labor Day holiday weekend. Penn Station and Grand Central Terminal were teeming with people coming and going. The interior of Grand Central Terminal is a wonderful setting for interesting photos. Many photographers find the architecture itself stimulating enough. But when I'm there, as beautiful as the interior is, I always try to look people in the setting that tell a story.

The early afternoon beams of sunlight were streaming in the tall glass windows and fell on this grand lady patiently waiting for her Prince Charming to ride in on his white stallion.
