lampost infatuation


.

.
Confession: I am completely infatuated by these lampposts. If I see one, I will try to use it to frame something else of interest: a watertank, a building, ... I simply can't resist.

From the pier @ 70th street (Riverside Park). We're looking at the Westside Highway to the left, the DSNY and its building with the pretty pink lights on the pier below (a recycling facility, I think).

like a gruyère


.
FDR drive | map
.
When I realized, looking at the FDR Drive from the East River, that Manhattan bedrock is very much like a gruyère. Full of holes. Some to let the cars go, like here. It's a miracle it doesn't implode.

This was taken Sunday night. I was not the only one to pause for a good dose of Don Giovanni at the Metropolitan Opera. See that taxi? The taxi man is just standing on its other side, enjoying some good ol' Wofgang Amadeus. Gotta love that!
