This was taken under the bridge that Joel was standing in front of a few pictures back. The murals were beautiful as was the ceiling but I couldn't get all of the walls because there was a bum sleeping on one of the benches. I have seen a few bums before but there were quite a few more around NY! Of course some of them might have been people with homes that were just catching some Z's on their work break or something.
Katie got quite close to that bird! If she had been bigger I think she might have caught it! :)Anyway, she had fun trying! Abby had fun running after the bird, Katie, or just plain nothing!Things were so ornate in the park! That picture below is of the base of a telephone pole! I suppose everything was that way because everything was so old. I wish people still built things like that! It is my opinion that ,when possible, even ordinary, necessary things should be made beautiful! I suppose that is why I like quilting!
chasing doves! Katie thought that the dove was just a pigeon until I explained to her that white pigeons are called doves which she thought was very silly!
Ohhhhhh! Don't we look Sweet?! :)The girls weren't so enthusiastic about posing. There were so much more interesting things to do like...
I love this picture of Shanna and I! Joel did a great job taking it! We both smiling and look great! I never look good in closeups!
Here's Katie smiling... Abby smiling...and Joel smiling!
At this point we released the girls from the bondage of being strapped into their strollers! We figured it was a good safe-enough place to let them run around! They loved looking at the fountain! Katie even recognized it as the one for the movie!
I think the birds really add something too the picture! Everywhere we went in NY there were pigeons, lots and lots of pigeons! They were so tame you could have walked up to one and kicked it! In fact I almost ran over a few with our stroller which delighted Abby!
Here's Joel! There were lots of people there because there were two guys performing over to the side. I think it was a tumbling act or something, I was too busy taking pictures of other things to notice!
Here are some shots of the beautiful fountain also featured in the film "Enchanted" which if you haven't seen it you really, really should!
And now for the moment my brother has been waiting for! Thoth! god of...ummm...American Indian...Aztec? Something! He was so strange I had to take his picture! Apparently he had a documentary done on him that won an Oscar. I had no idea at the time otherwise I might have asked to get my picture taken with him. Then again, maybe not. I don't know If I would actually want him to touch me!I will leave you now because I have to start dinner but I still do have more pictures of NY!
