Nose In The Air

What a gaw-jus day in New York! Perfect temps and humidity, with a touch of a breeze in the air (just enough to blow the dust and grit around and mess with my contact lenses, grrrrrr). The beautiful people of the East Side were out in their summer finery -  Bendel, Bergdorf - gotta get more bling. Was able to grab some wonderful material for my latest compendium. Modesty and current summer fashion are not compatible, and thank God for that!

Got this shot while walking across 57th street, just outside the Prada shop.

....Wonder If She's Gotta Boyfriend .....

Another Perfect Day In Paradise

It's been quite a spring so far in the New York area. Lots of rain, but some really perfect days. James Russell Lowell said it so perfectly:

'And what is so rare as a day in June?
Then, if ever, come perfect days;
Then Heaven tries earth if it be in tune,
And over it softly her warm ear lays;
Whether we look, or whether we listen,
We hear life murmur, or see it glisten;'

To celebrate:

Yet to keep us humble:
