Pictures for the Week

Hey! Here's a bunch of pictures I done took over the last week or so! Ready?

Go!

Let's start with a nice sunset. Where's Lady Liberty? Aha.

I stopped by where that crane came down on the Upper East Side. Here's some pics...

Not sure why it's good for these things to have tires off the ground.... but ummm... ok?

There's that guy working this thing that's doing this.

Ok on to other pictures!

I headed out to Sheepshead Bay the other day and there was this dude on a boat with suspenders and there was his like underpants or undershirt situation and I took a picture behind his back.

This boat that goes out for bluefish. That dude was mid-shirt change and he was like, 'Wtf. Why you taking a picture of me mid-shirt change?'

Head out on the Ocean Eagle V and you can fish for umm.. blacks?

There's no hook in that snack you said!. That you've eaten those things 20x you said and you know it's safe..! 'No worries eat up!' you said...

That's the last time I listen to that guy I tells ya...

BLEH!!! IT'S HOT OUT! BLEH!!!! I LIKE FISH! BLEH!!!

The non-world famous Izuminka Market! Right next to the non-world famous Intellect Center!

Currently fighting for their money back from the sign painter guy...

Also saw the Red Hook Waterfront Arts Festival. Those girls danced around and people watched...

This beefy guy danced around with that colorful chick-- and people watched...

Definitely a different kind of show....

Then these chicks danced around and made me feel totally out of shape...

Synchronized dancing is weird. It's like they are all kind of are doing basically the same thing-- but you can spot the standouts...

Wait they're back again! The Purple Performance!

And that was that with the Red Hook Festival...

Danzig fan representing...

This guy was hanging out in alley by himself waiting for a job...

This might be the best bridge in America...

There's this new thing down by the pier sort of hard to explain...

Bursting out of this dock is this giant looking telescope. And it supposedly goes under the water all the way across to London....

And when you look thru the telescope...

You see people standing under London Bridge looking back at you... Live!! I held Roscoe up and made him wave his paw. People laughed. Coolio!

They had white board signs so you could write hello to people or whatever...

Down in Dumbo. Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass...

Not sure what was painted on the side of this DHL box but seemed coolio. Would be coolio of DHL or Fed Ex arted up their boxes.

Roscoe practicing chillaxation techniques...

So some rich guy really liked this carousel and restored it and wanted to put it in a park-- but the city is hassling it. Insurance or whatever...

So it's in this indoor space waiting for approval to be put in a park. I wondered about the crazy amount of extra money it takes to buy, transport, restore, and temporarily store a working carousel. Crazy money. But not quite crazy money enough to get approved by the city and placed in a park.

And a couple-o murals to close this out!

Last one!

BYE! BLEH!!!! IT'S HOT OUT! I LIKE AIR CONDITIONING! BLEH!

ok bye!
tOdd

PS. I took a really short video snippit of the dancers. If you wanna watch em here...

More coolio than you thought?

(and here's a more info link to the telescope thing I took pictures of...)
