ABC Wednesday—G is for "gravestones"

These are in Père Lachaise cemetery, one
of the most beautiful, peaceful spots in Paris.
Though it makes for a good photo op, it
also saddens me to see how some of
the graves have fallen into a sorry state.

Prometheus photobombed

I came by Rockefeller Center on my way to
work recently and snapped a few shots of this
famous bronze gilded statue (apparently the most
photographed piece of sculpture in NYC).
He's being photobombed by that couple, but . . .

He's being seriously photobombed
by Jeff Koons' gigantic half-pony,
half-dinosaur topiary. You can
learn more about it here.

the butterfly's brunch

I went to the garden to play with my new
camera, which has a 50X zoom.  I was
impressed with what I could capture from
a fair distance—and handheld too.

an empty barrow

Actually, this wheelbarrow isn't
empty—it's full of shadows!

pink lotus

Look what's in (very full) bloom
in the garden right now—
so beautiful!

Moving in

 . . . on the Upper East Side, just down the block
from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
I didn't see these folks' furniture, but they
had some beautiful mirrors.   And no, I didn't—
it was already (conveniently) uncovered.

Thursday Challenge—"yellow"

I captured this tiny flower
with a close-up lens on my iPhone
(so hard to focus, but lots of fun).
