Post #1,000

no skaters at Rockefeller Center


What's wrong here? No skaters! Nobody gets to skate in the rain, even if they want to at Rockefeller Center. I wanted a nice, snow-falling-on-the-skaters-and-tree shot but, NOOOOO, we got rain instead of the predicted, big, bad, snow storm. Oh, well, stay tuned and, one of these days, you will see "better" photos of this landmark.

As the title says, this is post number 1,000 here at New York Nitty-Gritty. Thanks for continuing to visit. I like your comments, too, so keep 'em coming.

Thanks for your posting of New York and Alaska Pictures. Both places are so nicely visual. Looking forward to the next 1000.
Thanks again

This is magical even without the skaters. Your commentary made me think of how many times I wait for people to get out of my way so I can take a picture. Maybe I need to rethink that.

There is peace in this picture, and I can't help but see the tree and the angel (or whatever he is). That's just plain great.

Congrats on the milestone post. Perhaps you should have come North, you would have gotten your desired skaters and snow...albeit in the Boston Common rather than Rockafeller!

Love the picture though, the lights on the tree look like confetti!

Dude your site is a joke.
You are the typical art fag!
You think you are so cool because you walk around with a camera. I have some news for you, anyone can take pictures. The technology is so great now a friggin monkey can take good pictures.
DOPE!

The smooth opaque ice in the foreground,contrasted with the rich gold of the statue and the riot of colored christmas tree lights is very pleasing. And again the contrast between the texture of the red fountain with the smoothness of the horizontal yellow gold window? lights...it makes for a very nice composition.
I wonder what the ice looks like all chewed up after a crowd of skaters.
