this that and a water tower or two


took the subway
 on sunday
 to meet a friend
 for
 a dim sum brunch
in chinatown


on the way
 i met this family 
headed to brooklyn 
with
 a step ladder and a sign
they were going to cheer on their daughter 
who was running the marathon
it was a perfect nyc fall day
perfect for running



after brunch 
at
 the joy luck palace
 on
 mott street
we walked to the westside subway
stopping to snap this mural


i stepped back to get a better angle 
and there were
two, perhaps siamese, water towers!


and 
when i got off the subway 
uptown 
i snapped this shot 
of 
a runner 
who'd completed the marathon

i tip my hat to all runners
running is not something i do
marathoners deserve huge props

  1. Nice city scenes. I can't imagine running a marathon but appreciate the people who do. A lot of dedication and determination.
