I had originally wanted to post this last night after working on these few photos and a rousing day spent decompressing from my trip to NYC this week. I actually took a nap in the afternoon – something I rarely ever do – so this was how busy my day was. I did go out for lunch with co-workers to the new Olive Garden in town and I believe it was the single Italian margarita we all had that put me to sleep. My gosh, that thing was good. And they serve it with a shot of amaretto.
And then I watched The Adjustment Bureau. What a cool movie. Have you noticed yet how all-over-the-place this post is becoming?
So let’s get to the photos ~
Along Columbus Avenue around 69th Street.
The Apthorp on Broadway between 78th & 79th, is an historic apartment building that was built in the very early 1900’s.
The older buildings are so incredible. I’m not sure where I was when I took this one. I just thought it was beautiful.
As is this one with its cool water tower (if that’s what is on the top).
I took this from our table at Robert on Columbus Circle because I was so taken with the pretty trees.
There is so much to see and do in the city.
But I really am glad to be home again in my comfort zone.
I’ve never been to Lincoln Center, and we didn’t go inside, but wow. We tourists were quite taken with the steps and their advertising lighting that changed every few seconds or so.
There was a flash mob here at Halloween on these very steps this past October that featured Kelly Ripa. Not that I’m a huge Kelly Ripa fan, mind you. But damn, that girl has a lot of energy. And she’s pretty funny.
And finally, because I’ve got to shake a leg here, I leave you with this. We are actually having company coming out tomorrow, which is fun. It’s just a very small gathering, which suits my husband well. He can’t take too many people – too many voices. I’ve got cleaning to do, grocery shopping, and maybe someone is getting a doggie bath.
But before I go, I want to wish you all a Happy New Year.
Let’s hope it’s a good one.
Taken from my table at Robert with the lights of Broadway acting as the bokeh for this shot. The brush is a freebie download from French Kiss Textures that I found somewhere on their sidebar.
Happy New Year, my friends ~
