This is the sun slipping behind the cloud bank of the approaching nor'easter. The storm, which the weather service has named (!), is supposed to create all kinds of holiday travel drama. I am thankful that I do not have to go very far to celebrate Thanksgiving this year.

I have been noticing a lot of green and gold this fall.
It looked good on the garden weeds.
This was one of those afternoons when the sun bounces off dark clouds and the colors are really rich and saturated.
While we were electing our communist mayor last week, the young son was home from school. So I took him up to Central Park to climb on the rocks.
The elm trees, something of an obsession of mine, were at their autumn peak.
I tried to photograph the young son leaping around, but it came out as a blur with no child visible.
We wandered around the ramble, and for a moment he felt a little lost.

I do have a thing for October light. It is hard to capture the evening light because the afternoon shadows are so long.
In my neighborhood, the buildings are still low enough and the golden light spills out around 5.30pm.

I took my camera with me when I was running errands on my bicycle. It was mid afternoon and I wasn't sure there would be anything to photograph. I had forgotten about this wall I kept wanting to catch.
The bars on the eye are a trompe l'oeil, an eye that is a trick of the eye.
When I was crossing the Williamsburg bridge I noticed that workers were resurfacing the building with the JR photo. Its days may be numbered, so I photographed it as well.
Meanwhile, Bansky has been in New York putting up art and creating frenzy.
