Okay, is that not the most ADORABLE little dog in the photograph above? I just so happened to capture this scene while walking down a street in Manhattan. I took the picture so fast because I didn't want to miss it. However, I really need to upgrade my camera to one with a faster shutter speed setting because it's rather slow. I can't tell you how many times I'll lose a great action shot, but got lucky with this one.
A unique thing about NYC are the billion, trillion, gazillion people walking around. Everywhere you look there are humans. And for someone like me who enjoys noticing people, I find it fascinating because of the diversity.
NYC is very different in that people don't seem to care if you take their picture. It's a city in which I feel so free to snap away without worrying if anyone will be offended. People are too busy going about their business to concern themselves if you're taking their picture.
It's a very camera-friendly city. And not at all shy. "You wanna take my picture? Hell, go right ahead!"
Here, take a look...
I can't remember where I was when I spotted this à la mode gentleman in a full-length fur coat, sunglasses, hat, leather boots and gloves, pacing back and forth on the pavement while talking very intensely on his cell phone.
GOD, HOW I LOVE NYC!

NY is also a very canine-friendly city. You see people with dogs everywhere. And I love how the dogs are so acclimated to city life; not ever bothered by loud car horns, ambulance sirens, speeding buses and cabs, or all the pedestrians on the sidewalks. They walk with a confident streetwise stride that says, "Hey...I'm a city dog, cute and friendly, but please don't ever mess with me because I'm da' BAD ASS."
This guy was AWESOME! And he really knew how to play that sax too. He was JAMMING! I tipped him because he was such a delight.
Here he is posing for a photograph.
Doormen at The Plaza on 5th Avenue.
Ice skating at Rockefeller Center.
I spotted these guys playing a boom box; lip-syncing and dancing. And as I walked by, I even started dancing myself because the music they were playing was faaaaabulous!
As I turned around while walking away, I saw the guy in front taking an exposé selfie...
Yup...ONLY in New York City!
Happy Monday, y'all!
