(honestly, I have no idea what its called, I called it 'arches')
if you time it right
you can see the
Metro North train
zip by on its way into
Penn Station.

  5. Such old stone structures have their own life. They must have been placed by caring hands.

  13. "arches" works for me. I love shots like that, but around here taking them requires standing in the middle of highway traffic! This one lends itself well to the b&w.

  14. I love Riverside park photo. Now your cat collage is adorable. Thanks for the ice cream comments. I also make the custard base ones too. I am making blueberry/cream cheese again and that is custard based. I make tons of ice cream and honestly it is not my thing but my friends like the idea of homemade and besides I have them all spoiled:) and I like to make them all happy:)

  25. I LOVE this; it is a masterpiece!!!! (Please don't feel the need to reply to all of my comments; I'm just trying to catch up on what's been going on with you. I try to not comment on everything, but I can't help myself on some of them. This one especially.)

  26. I don't know what it's called either... other than an awesome photo! there were some arches at the old Bethlehem Steel plant that I got the same vibe from that you got here. I thought they looked like the aqueducts of ancient Rome.

    Yours are in better shape though.
