  1. You know... I've heard of water taxi's before, but I've never seen one actually painted like a Checker cab! How cool is that!

  2. Nice contrast: the big yellow 'new' with that old beauty. And sun in January! :O)

  6. My favorite, I think...the flag flying with the Statue in the background...pondering the origins of each rider...and to ride 'that' taxi! What a story this picture tells! Have a joyful weekend!

  9. I should known a NYC water taxi would be yellow! Methinks it would be a fun way to travel. And a beautiful photo, too, Daryl. What a setting!

    The effect of which you mentioned but which you forgot the name of is "posterizing". One click with Photoshop although you can adjust the look dramatically.

  10. This just reinforces the point that now that I live in NY I really should get down there and visit the city.

    Love the shot...as always, gorgeous!

    Oh and hey, I saw that you had a owie this morning when you got off the train! Hope it's feeling better soon!
