They must be tourists
Image by Ed Yourdon Let's face it: New Yorkers don't walk around the city wearing a t-shirt that proclaims how much they love where they live. Well, maybe one passionate individual might do so -- but not a pink t-shirt, for goodness sake! And here we have two such people, marching along in their t-shirts, at the southwestern corner of Columbus Avenue and 72nd Street... Thus, they must be tourists -- and God bless 'em, I hope they spent oodles of money to help keep our economy afloat... Note: even though the girls, and this photo, have nothing at all to do with Times Square, the photo was published in a Jul 26, 2009 blog titled "Avoiding Times Square." I guess that's called "artistic license" ... In addition, a cropped version of the photo was published in an Aug 13, 2009 blog titled "Travel Gear Then and Now."

It was also published in an undated (mid-May 2014) blog titled "21 VANLIGA MISSTAG SVENSKA TURISTER GÃR I NEW YORK." ********************** This is part of an evolving photo-project, which will probably continue throughout the summer of 2008, and perhaps beyond: a random collection of "interesting" people in a broad stretch of the Upper West Side of Manhattan -- between 72nd Street and 104th Street, especially along Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue. I don't like to intrude on people's privacy, so I normally use a telephoto lens in order to photograph them while they're still 50-100 feet away from me; but that means I have to continue focusing my attention on the people and activities half a block away, rather than on what's right in front of me. I've also learned that, in many cases, the opportunities for an interesting picture are very fleeting -- literally a matter of a couple of seconds, before the person(s) in question move on, turn away, or stop doing whatever was interesting. So I've learned to keep the camera switched on (which contradicts my traditional urge to conserve battery power), and not worry so much about zooming in for a perfectly-framed picture ... after all, once the digital image is uploaded to my computer, it's pretty trivial to crop out the parts unrelated to the main subject. For the most part, I've deliberately avoided photographing bums, drunks, drunks, and crazy people. There are a few of them around, and they would certainly create some dramatic pictures; but they generally don't want to be photographed, and I don't want to feel like I'm taking advantage of them. I'm still looking for opportunities to take some "sympathetic" pictures of such people, which might inspire others to reach out and help them. We'll see how it goes ... The only other thing I've noticed, thus far, is that while there are lots of interesting people to photograph, there are far, far, *far* more people who are *not* so interesting. They're probably fine people, and they might even be more interesting than the ones I've photographed ... but there was just nothing memorable about them.

Text Appearing Before Image: il she expired. I seemedrather to die than she; for she so burned with love for her Lord that shedesired nothing but the hour in which the chains of the body being broken,she might enjoy His presence for ever. She surrendered her spirit into thehands of her Creator in the sixty-eighth year of her life, on 4th October1582. Her end was so quiet and calm, that they who had seen her often inprayer would have thought her now also intent on the same heavenlyexercise. Her sisters watched by the earthly tabernacle, which had been thetemple of the Holy Spirit, until ten oclock next day. Her face, which hadbeen lined and furrowed by age, became smooth and without wrinkles, morebeautiful than in life. All the clergy, nobles, and people of Alva throngedto her burial. She was laid in her habit on a bier covered with a pall ofcloth of gold, and placed in a vault between the inner and the outer chapelof the Convent of Alva.

ON Tuesday the loth July 1584, at about half-past twelve, PrinceWilliam of Orange, with his wife on his arm, and followed by theladies and gentlemen of his family, was going to the dining-room.He was dressed on that day, according to his usual fashion, very plainly,wearing a wide-leaved loosely-shaped hat of dark felt, with a silken cordround the crown; a high ruff encircled his neck, while a loose surcoat ofgray frieze cloth, over a tawny leather doublet, with wide slashed under-clothes, completed his costume. Balthazar Gerard presented himself at thedoorway and asked for a passport. The Princess, struck by the mans paleand agitated countenance, anxiously questioned her husband concerning thestranger. The Prince of Orange carelessly observed that it was merely aperson who came for a passport, order Note About Images Please note that these images are extracted from scanned page images that may have been digitally enhanced for readability - coloration and appearance of these illustrations may not perfectly resemble the original work.
