  1. Good choice!

    I assumed others would also go with a geographic location as their theme.

  5. That's a beautiful photo. I love rainy/light reflections too. Glad to see orange tables and chairs rather than orange barriers. :)

  10. You've reminded me of something I've been meaning to write for a long time. There are so many "squares" in Boston that nobody really knows about; little places that are mostly just street corners, actually, dedicated to fallen soldiers and whatnot. I think it will make a real nice pictorial if I can interest someone in sending a real photographer to capture images to accompany my text. Thanks for the nudge!

  11. Of course you had to post this! It is a beautiful picture and perfect for the theme. Our weather has looked like this all week.

  12. An excellent showing of squares in one of the world's great squares. How many would have guessed 20 years ago that today Times Square would be PG-rated? (I liked your poetic explanation, too, of course.)

  13. Of course, Times Square - Iconic. Although you do have a lot of Iconic in NY.
