The London Fashion Week event is put on twice a year and many people flock there - to stand outside and be noticed and photographed. Who am I to let them down? Here is just one of them.

Put another record on!


Speaking of ...



Here's the "One More Time" Logo'd Wurlitzer in the cool lower Lounge at the Hotel Nacional.
(Casino, rock, and celebrity souvenirs too.) The 1950's and before, all exactly as they were.

Warm As Toast And Marmalade


It's cool for cats, but a bit too cool for this one. He may not be quite as warm as toast, but he's definitely marmalade. This is a photo of Bob the street cat that I'd forgotten I'd taken back in 2010.

And I suddenly remembered that it's Caturday so late in the day that it's Punday in some parts of the world...

What Dog?


An interesting one, this. I took a photo of two young women with a dog. When I looked at the photo some days later, I didn't see the dog. The graffiti kind of camouflaged it. Then, suddenly, I saw the dog. Given that it was my most viewed photo on Flickr yesterday, I'm guessing that a number of other people didn't see the dog until they clicked to enlarge the photo.

Yin Yu Tang - The Huang Home


"Peabody, set the wayback machine back 200 years, to China’s southeastern Huizhou region, to the Huang home."

Fast forward to now, and the entire home complex is on display, bedrooms, courtyard and kitchen -
imported intact from China (like so much!) , now at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts.

Witches and Pilgrims and Graves, Oh My

From Salem, Mass., home of the (real) witch trials.
Here are a few images from "the Burial Point" for early colonial settlers (including from the Mayflower)....
Next to that is a burial grounds for the many convicted "witches" killed there in that dark historical place.

People say: Avoid Salem in October! Properly so, as it becomes a tourism mob scene around Halloween. Lucky to visit on a sunny day in late summer before the tourist tornado hits. So here is a taste without big crowds, far ahead of All Saints, Dia de los Muertos.

Pictured here: Large blue sign explaining the history of the Salem Witch Trials, and the end result, here; Image of the final protests and sworn innocence of accused "witches"; Gravestone of "Witch"; Gravestone of American forefather (Mayflower Pilgrim): Signs and sights of the "Burial Point". Ghosts and goblins may follow, as Halloween / Dia De Los Muertos approach, along with nightfall.

Bevy of Birds on Broadway

One is an American Bittern (public art work), quite literally "On Broadway" - on New York's Upper West Side, near Zabar's.

The real (living) bird here is much smaller than the heron-sized bittern, and seems to be a native New Yorker bird doing its thing:
Pizza pizza!

I've been curious about this little guy; I've seen many now that I try to be more aware of birds. It's not quite a wren or sparrow.
As it turns out, it is not even a native New Yorker! In fact it is classified as an "invasive species". (Come here to eat our pizza, eh?)
I'm still learning #ornithology. :)) So I finally noticed I had no idea what this little iridescent thing is, everywhere, scurrying about...

And I've just now learned definitively: this is a European Starling in its iridescent summer plumage (like a glossy ibis!).

Who knew? O.K. then... thinking the Benson version would do nicely. After a long day, Cue up a mellow song and take a little walk....

On Broadway....

Friendly Dragonfly


A couple of weeks ago, I was photographing some dragonflies on a local nature trail. I find these little creatures endlessly fascinating and I can't help but think they are studying me as much as I am studying them. I've always wanted to have one land on my arm or hand but until recently, I never had the luck. Well, the forest fairies must have sprinkled pixie dust on me because I finally got a little guy to land on my hand. He perched on my left hand and was facing to my left and of course I had my camera in my right hand, so I was twisting and contorting my arm and hand to get the camera lined up head on so I could get a shot. I had no idea how long he would stay, so I was a bit anxious to at least click off a couple of shots and hope they were in focus and centred. This photo is one of two I managed to get.

Now, a week later while attending Starfest, a huge dragonfly (helicopter size!) got trapped inside my friend's tent. He was fluttering around, desperately trying to find an exit point. My friend grabbed what looked like a small badminton racquet and moved towards the panicking creature. No!! I yelled. Do not hurt him! I leapt into action and moved towards the dragonfly and extended my hands up towards him. Come here, darling. Don't be scared. Come to me. He weaved and ducked, eluding my grasp, and finally, finally!, he landed on my hand. I gingerly turned and walked towards the tent door and emerged outside. He hesitated for a moment on my hand and then, whoosh, he was gone. From that moment on, I was christened "The Dragonfly Whisperer". It's a moniker I shall wear with pride.

And the luck remains. Last Saturday, I was out on the nature trail again and came upon a dragonfly resting on a leaf next to the road. I bent down and he didn't budge. I moved my camera in close. He bobbed his head at me. I moved my hand underneath the leaf and slowly raised it, encouraging him to step onto my hand. Slowly but surely he did it. And once again, I held a tiny dragonfly in the palm of my hand. Such a thrilling experience! The Dragonfly Whisperer lives on!
