..while shooting this one, a guy looking like a state trooper approached me and asked if i was with some newspaper or something like that (i guess, you’d have to have a permit for that sort of stuff).. eventually i convinced him that i was just some tourist going around the city.. so i got the usual tourist treatment with the obligatory tour + lecture.. 😀

cleopatra’s needle

cleopatra's needle

..taken near the Great Lawn..

Cleopatra’s Needle (“L’aiguille de Cléopâtre” in French) is the popular name for each of three Ancient Egyptian obelisks re-erected in London, Paris, and New York City during the nineteenth century. The London and New York ones are a pair, while the Paris one comes from a different original site, where its pair remains. Although the needles are genuine Ancient Egyptian obelisks, they are somewhat misnamed as they have no particular connection with Queen Cleopatra VII of Egypt, and were already over a thousand years old in her lifetime. The Paris “needle” was the first to be moved and re-erected, and the first to acquire the nickname.

..this here’s 432 broome street (as seen from google street view).. i’ve passed this place multiple times and often see bustling activity going on inside, however, this time, the door was closed and the mural looked good, so i snapped away.. as it turns out (according to google), this establishment is owned by Josh Hadar of Hadar Metal Designs.. and they make pretty wicked bikes.. check it out here..

your moment of zen

your moment of zen

..a graffiti-laden ATM somewhere off SoHo…

Answers.com Katsu – (Japanese). In Japanese zen, an expletive uttered by one who has had a breakthrough experience, such as solving a kōan or realizing enlightenment (bodhi; satori). In ordinary usage, it is a verb meaning ‘to win’ or ‘to gain dominance over’. There is also another word pronounced ‘katsu’ that occurs in Zen literature represented by a different Chinese character which means simply ‘to shout’.

..John Stewart from The Daily Show always ends his show with “your moment of zen”.. well, every payday for me is a moment of zen.. lol! and i end every atm transaction with an expletive.. haha..
