Inspection?

First I thought this gentleman was a scavenger, but he then took his cane and stuck it into the garbage as if he was measuring its contents.  Looking closely at his raincoat shows he is an official working for the "City of New York".   I don't know why.

Public Personal Call

I had some trouble thinking about the purpose of this picture.  Originally, I was focused on the guy who was using the phoneless public phone booth for a cell phone call.  He was positioning his leg in unusual positions (see the second shot).  Then the girl went by and I caught her in the other booth.  There is his gaze that way, kind of making it a pickup type of thing.  I thought the U-Haul truck could add some kind of angle.  But, in the end I came up blank and leave it to others to figure out.

Bad News

The gentleman in the center reminded me a bit of FDR.  I didn't notice the duck until I got home, otherwise I would have featured it in the shot a bit more.

Corner Wall Street

The steam heat escaping from the pipes seemed particularly atmospheric on this corner of Wall Street.  I was happily protected from the raindrops by the scaffold and watched the activity on the corner here.  This top shot was included in my Top 10 from last year, so I'm a bit late catching up to the sequences in this blog.  Better late than never.

Scooter Rubbers

Kind of marginal protection from a rainy day.  It immediately seemed to me to be a condom of sorts to keep the rain from the precious plays where skin meets scooter.  I did google synonyms for the word condom, as I thought that was not really a politically correct word.  Prophylactic, sheath, contraception, and then rubber.  Maybe plastic would have been proper.

Conference room at Night

Dusk and the shadows are low and horizontal.  I passed the conference room, and went back to my desk to grab my camera.  I can believe that the plant will grow and eventually takeover this room.
