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.

Love the photo. Can't wait to see the video!

(BTW, I've been meaning to tell you: thanks for linking to larger photos!)

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. :-)
