Never lazy, afternoon light plays with a curtain and our eyes...
The world must be coming to an end because New York Nitty-Gritty has been nominated for something--finalist for The 2006 Best of Blogs Awards - Best Hobby Blog
They don't have a photo category, so, what the heck, I'll take it. Be sure to go there and show your support (early and often!). Voting ends April 13th.

Almost everywhere I go, I see him. The intrepid little man...He walks and he walks--and in any weather, too. Here, I saw him yesterday, on the West Side Highway close to Chelsea Piers. Rain? He scoffs. "Walk on, Little Man!", I yelled out. He barely noticed me as he pressed on his journey, more interested in the other little man going in the opposite direction.
I wish you well, little man. May you always carry on...

Here we have a Williamsburg, Brooklyn composition featuring part of the famous Russian Orthodox Cathedral of the Transfiguration of Our Lord. You may have seen it on the hit television show SEINFELD (in the episode where George pursues converting to the "Latvian Orthodox" religion for a woman).
Keen eyes will notice the absence of the familiar green patina. In the past year, workers repaired and cleaned the church's famous copper top.

The little man, as usual, shuffles above the slush--this time, right after the Saint Patrick's Day Parade on Fifth Avenue.
Having so much to do in NYC certainly blesses those who live or visit here. But having the spirit to "get out there" in spite of less than perfect weather blesses one, too. I salute all the people who braved the chill and the slush to march in and/or watch yesterday's parade. Erin Go Bragh!

As I slipped and slid in the slush and snow, I saw the little man near the Plaza.
Moving closer, I could see that the little man thinks about wearing the green as he walks near Saint Patrick's Day Parade barricades on 59th Street.
I nearly dropped the camera when I saw this taxi's bumper and the little man in the background fleeing the scene .
Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

By covering all the crud on the streets and sidewalks of the city, if only for a short time, snow (Hey, Oh) ranks as quite a blessing, well, unless too much falls at once but we haven't had that "worry" in some time.
Of course, some things appear when the snow (Hey, Oh) melts that one might rather not see. Sorry, kids!
Last but not least, here's a follow up to the STOOP photo from earlier this week. You can see only a tiny bit of snow (Hey, Oh) remaining in the shaded corners.
