Sitting next to us in a country restaurant in the Catskills was this old dusty piano. I hope at the very least it’s brought back to life for special occasions.

Next weekend we’re off to Vegas. Even though the city would like to promote itself as family friendly, it is still a playground for adults. Up until a few years ago, I had never been. This will be my 5th time with plans to go again before the end of the year. This photo was taken at one of the Wynn’s decadent buffets last year.

Donning my new tennis shoes, I sat down to watch the final match of this year’s US Open from the comfort of my living room — this image borrowed from my evening at Flushing Meadows a week and a half ago. Roger Federer, who makes tennis look elegant and effortless is a champion once again.

So, on my wall hangs a picture that appeared in my first New York art show. The kind director at the hpgrp gallery accepted two of my pieces that sat amongst a number of other artists for the tail end of the gallery’s $99 Art Fair. While this is just a start in my pursuit of fine art recognition, I am happy to see a monetary value placed on my photographs. The price tag shall remain.

From the moment I woke up this morning, I was looking forward to lunch. BLT and chips were on the menu, although this tomato would have been just fine solo.
