Tourists beware!


Warning! Up and down Fifth Avenue roving gangs of smartly dressed rogues are pulling the old snowball-in-the-handbag trick on unsuspecting visitors! The mere sight of stylish luggage in the hands of anyone but themselves drives these jealous dandies to vile acts of snow-based vandalism!


"What ho?"


Thankfully, disaster was averted when this particular scheming fop was scuppered mid-dip. Hopefully the gentleman at the front was using his pocket-phone to alert the constabulary.

Keep alert! These handsome bounders will surely strike again!

Whatever you do, don't look at the rabbit.

You will only encourage him.

Whatever you do, don't look at the rabbit.

What glory, indeed!

Taken on May 25, 2007, over my shoulder through my rear window while stopped in traffic on West 29th Street (or thereabouts).

It was 87 degrees out. That's some dedication to incomprehensible self-indulgence.

The second picture was also featured on The "Blog" of "Unnecessary" Quotation Marks. One of my proudest moments.

More scenes from 5th Ave.

Men and their phones.

How ever did we used to make it all the way down the street without dying of boredom, back in the days before we all had handy pocket-phones? I have no idea.
See this photo large to see if you can find more pocket-phones.

This photo is unusual as there are four people and only one pocket-phone.

A young man ignores the tempting offers made by the suspicious looking gent to his right.

You would never guess this was taken in NEW YORK CITY.

View this photo large and see how many NYC icons you can spot.

Excellent resource for and about street photographers, based in the UK: In Public.

And while I am pimping UK street photographers, make sure to look at the stream of one of my favorite Flickr members, Buckaroo Kid.
