The news, reflected, just hours before Michael Jackson died.

Commuter morning, again...BB shots form late last week.

Note how crowded Penn was, but a few feet away and seconds later I took the photo of the woman fixing her hair. A quiet moment in a crowd, standing aside near the elevator that takes you to Tracks 20 and 21...

We all find peace and beauty anyway we can, huh.

More beach shots, BB shots. Yes, the two children in the post below are my younger children - Mariana and Alex.

Our annual fireworks day at Lido Beach. A beautiful afternoon after a brief afternoon thunderstorm. Wonderful day had by all and I did not even burn (mira.cle).

More MOMA - here I merely show the random patrons. The subject sitting with the cell phone showed no interest in art, more in her mobile. C'est la AT&T. The blond woman in the bottom is a starlet, she was in the last Harry Potter movie and played a hippie like girl that helped fight off the Lord. No one else recognized her. She and her friend took a lot of photos. She used her flash, a no no.

The woman framing the Pollock had great legs. There is young lady in front of a dark Picasso holding a device up to her ear - somehow these radios provide commentary regarding the art. They make it harder for me to photograph and avoid them. Camera use is also distracting to compositions, but the use also allows me to be less secretive when I take candids. The BlackBerry does make a clicking sound when a picture is taken.

Nothing is posed.

I like the two top pictures the best, and the Pollock.

All aboard. Back to trains and subways...incredible light on the train the days these photos were taken. Overcast outside the light just glowed into the car and bathed the riders

Another first observation for me. The sleeping woman in a photo above carried a second handbag used to commute with a large travel pillow, the kind some people might use on transatlantic flight. You have to love her and what she would do for a bit of comfort.

The woman on the subway had amazing large hands. She stood right in front of me.

I am taking a lot of vertical shots with the BB. It is easier to hold that way and looks less like you are taking a picture., In.cognito.

Hey, it's Friday. Smile. Laugh. Party.

MOMA escalators - all taken as I rode up yesterday at the start of my visit. I tried to find the verylarge Monet Waterlilies painting, but it is out on loan.

A MOMA lunch with no lunch (they do have a great cafeteria). Here I tried to blend art with patrons. I realize I mostly photograph women. I have other photographs - I like escalators and the museum has good low light. Also a nice series with a cell phone.

The galleries were crowded - here is the line in front of "Starry, Starry Night."
