The Lazy K Bar Guest Ranch in Tucson, AZ, has many unusual smells particularly for a city dweller like me.

It’s back to the cold after a warm vacation out west.

Leaving the snow behind, I find myself in the southwest again to visit friends and my bro (pictured).

Generally, it was a crappy ride down to DC until I witnessed this amazing sky.

The trip home is always long, but I just made the train and spent minimal time out in the blustery cold.

Weekends usually mean at least one breakfast at Le BonBonniere, a scruffy diner in the west village. This “temple of grease” attracts movie stars and average folks like ourselves.

tough guy…

…and the people who dared to photograph him. This guy and his buds were at Coney Island to watch the Polar Bears do their thing.



food, sort of

I haven’t posted a food shot in a while. As much as I have been avoiding all ‘fast’ food I will make the occasional exception. This was my lunch on xmas day. It tasted about as good as it looked, which isn’t saying much.

A trip to the West Side Rifle Range, hidden in the middle of Manhattan, was like visiting another world.

Not an artsy shot but relevant. I spotted this cute couple the night before the big game.



a grand terminal

2242831524 e3f0c8f57b o a grand terminal

Today my photo group took a tour of Grand Central Terminal (if you call it a station you’d actually be referring to its original name pre 1913 or the current post office nearby). We learned lots of interesting historical facts. Back in the late 1950s, in order to bring in revenue to a struggling depot and in response to the space race with Russia, Grand Central erected an American missile in the main concourse. The missile was a few feet taller than the ceiling, so a tiny black hole was cut to make it fit. You can still see the hole in the midst of the (backwards) constellations and even our tour guide could not explain why the hole was never filled in. This photo doesn’t show the hole but is only representative of just one corner of the ceiling.

Another bday for the record books. I was trying to think of something deep and meaningful to write for this post — how bdays are great but suck, etc. I’m over it. Simply put, I had my gin (with one olive), cards and notes from all my loving friends and family, and that was just right. Dinner at Babbo was icing on the bday cake.
