this & that tuesday

Last week I was on my way home, walking down 80th Street.
It was late, it was getting dark and it was cold.
Midway down the street there was a barricade of saw horses blocking my path.
I would have gone around it, walked in the street but there was a car parked .. did I mention it was late, cold and dark?.

So I did what any annoyed New Yorker would have done.
I moved the saw horse and walked .. through fresh, not quite hardened, cement

Left my mark, so to speak

On Saturday afternoon
I took that and this
to show off my dainty size 10.5 imprint ..
but it is there for ..
well ..
til forever ..




And then there was this.
On Sunday after the NYC Marathon

This Marathon Man
celebrated completing the 26.5 mile run
with a cigar and his Blackberry


Clickin' will embiggin all the pix

  1. So, you have left your mark for all to see, forever!

    How very typical of today's world - the marathon man and his blackberry.

  2. Now that's how the West was Won. Stogie chomping men of iron will and endurance, pitting themselves against the elements, wild animals, restless natives, rotgut whiskey and women of easy virtue. None of that Stairmaster crap for those guys, nosireebob! You have captured a true Renaissance man here!

    As for the concrete... I hope it didn't trash your shoes. Judging from the imprint, they weren't cheap. But I have to wonder what brain surgeon decided to close of the entire sidewalk in the middle of the block like that. In the words of one of America's great philosophers, "What a maroon!"

  4. Hey we wear the same size shoe. Too funny about your permanent imprint. The marathon celebrant is a classic. A cigar, what every runner needs, NOT.

    mark beside the imprint.

    for a busload of shutterbug tourists..

  8. Interesting. Your mark in the cement and the fact that whomever poured it left if still wet. Around here, the concrete finisher stays with the fresh concrete to avoid such things. And to keep animals, small children, bikes and yes, lovely high heels from imprinting the "job." I really wonder how long your imprint will be there or will a jackhammer man tear it out so it can be re-done. Great Monochrome Weekly photo. And thanks for visiting my blog. :)
