Welcome to the city that never sleeps!
Ming the Merciless
Venus de Milo
The sweeping lines and the rough texture and the colour - all works so beautifully against the background - and notice how it picks up (or rather you did in your photograph) the colour of the street names. Super!
Hi Ming! A nice copy; and close to my «home» of many years ago... How's «The Drake»?Lovely Village lamp post!Great solution for the yellow theme!!Now, one week working without coming here and you don’t even remember that Blogtrotter still exists. But it’s there, even if India 2008 has come to an end… ;)).Have a great weekend!
Great statue ! Plans:gardening , cinema and enjoy the sun ;)
I like the texture of this one, especially against the smoothness of the building. Shopping! For myself, this time :D
This is a beautiful shot but I've always disliked this trio of statues. I don't know why. BTW they are called "Looking Toward the Avenue" and are by Jim Dine.I'm off to tour the main library building today--something I've never done in all my years in NYC.
Could be a close relative.
I used to work right around the corner from there--that's by the Lehman Brother's building!
I know that statue!
Nice shot...fresh air for Venus de Milo!
This is a wonderful Venus de Milo, I like its texture and the color. No special plans for the WE...
Yesterday and today, my reaction has been... "Brrr......"
What I like about this photo even more than the main subject, is how busy everyone looks. There are people talking on their phones, and everyone seems to be heading in a totally different direction! =) Great job Ming!
Ah...great minds think alike. I worked across the street at 1290 Ave of the Americas in the 1980s. When I dubbed this statue and her sister the Venii de Milo my friends just didn't get it. ;^D
Ah, the Calyon building with the lady who lost her head. No wonder: imagine all that she must hear out of those bankers boardroom windows.
Love the old and the new.
