Empire State Pigeon

Just got back from a week in New York City and, after staying awake for 37 hours, have been saved from the effects of jetlag by a terrific headcold. Nice.

Luckily, I only started feeling unwell on our very last day in Manhattan, while wandering around 42nd street and 5th avenue, looking to photograph typical street scenes, and avoiding diamond shops.

It was cold, damn cold. But after a snowfall on our second day, we actually had very bright, sunny weather, which is good for seeing New York, as most of it is UP.

There is no further ‘up’ these days than the Empire State Building, which is an obligatory stop for us tourists. And it’s even colder on the 86th floor, particularly as you walk around to the North side where the sun don’t shine.

The building is so high, I was somehow surprised to see birds on the ledges getting in the way of our photographs. The funny thing was that despite the generally poor attitude¬†we humans have towards pigeons when they’re scavenging on the ‘sidewalk’, nobody was shooing them away at 1000ft above street level – like they might get hurt or something.

The building just behind this chap’s head is the UN building.



New Carpet

How exciting.

February being a quiet month for most businesses around here, the jobs that have waited a while tend to get done. So I now have carpet in the corridor and back room next to my studio, which had been driving me mad for far too long.

The winter may not be over just yet, but it won’t be long before the spring arrives. More lamb pictures.
