This is a photographic record of walks I have taken in the five boroughs -- posted in rough chronological order.

I'll skip around from borough to borough as the mood strikes me. I'll add captions and occasionally a brief
commentary but, for the most part, I'll let the pictures speak for themselves

Times Square, August 19.

It was a warm evening, thousands were milling around, a friendly crowd giving off a lot of positive energy: two couples, tourist from Germany and Scandinavia asked me to take their pictures with their digital point and shoot. A Latino mother thrust a disposable camera in my hand and, with gestures and a smile, asked me to photograph her and her little boy. I struck up a conversation with two young cops who seemed to be having a good time while making their presence felt. And a guy handing out circulars for two comedy clubs spent a few minutes talking with me. I wonder how many people besides me took notice of the day's headline news?

Hi Bob,
I think I've already seen most of these, but I must compliment you on the signature image. Besides being a sensationl photo, it is absolutely perfect for you.

Do you know any of Schubert's "Wanderer" songs?

amusement and irony go so well, hand-in-hand, don't they?
