un dimanche bien ordinaire


A very ordinary Sunday.
sunday corner
These guys caught my eyes, or my ears rather, as I was shopping at the farmer's market. They were just accross the street from it and they were good!

I was waiting for a taxi to drive by (you always want a yellow cab in a New York street picture) and then this guy flew by on his scooter.

This was taken on Colombus Avenue, in the Upper West Side. The trees that you see a the very back are the limits of Central Park West. The ones just accross the street are hiding the American Museum of Natural History.

NB: I have a little video here. The quality is attrocious (it was taken from my picture camera) but it gives you an idea of the atmosphere.

Looks like a lot of fun. Street musicians add so much life to our cities.

•fénix: thanks. I am still having some problem to upload it. I'll let you know when/if it's up. And BTW, thanks for the suggestion. Thanks to you I am now clicking on everyone else's pictures and discovering details I would otherwise have missed.
•olivier: en effet, c'est très sympa en été.
•steve: I think these guys might come from New Orleans. They were playing outside of Jaques Imo, which is a N.O.based restaurant, if I am not mistaken.

Only in NYC do you see an adult using a kid's scooter without caring about what everyone else thinks. :-)
