Did New York City steal Philadelphia's "Love" sign? I associate this sign with Philly. Not sure why but I saw it there first so I was surprised to see the "Love" sign on 6th Avenue. Oh well, New York steals from lots of places and we could all use more love.
Shooting right into the sun so not a great time of day for this shot but it looks a little like a Christmas card, so I will go with it. Next year, have to get to San Jose and stay overnight. Looks like a fun area to shoot Christmas shots.
Timing is everything and unfortunately mine was not good as I had to visit the San Jose Christmas tree display during the daytime. It must be wonderful to see at night. The flip side is that it is much warmer during the day.
If you are going to have a Convention Center, you might as well have a Strip District nearby. As far as I can tell from Wikipedia, there has never been any stripping on the small strip of land called the Strip District in Pittsburg. Taken during a spring trip to Pittsburg.
Beautiful snow fall today and during the night last night. Surprising, as I didn't think it was supposed to snow. Got the dog to go out for a walk in the woods. She is always good for a walk no matter the weather.
Even the stairs can't take the cold anymore. Looked like they were crying on my way in to the Nuveen building yesterday. The forecast is for a slight warming so hopefully, we catch a break over the weekend.
I was thinking of posting this shot anyway over the past couple of days and now with Nelson Mandela's passing today, I thought it was appropriate. Strange walking past the South African embassy last month and seeing this statue behind a chain linked fence as they do repairs to the nearby sidewalk.
