Looking east along 14th Street from the corner at Ninth Ave.

On my walk out of Chelsea Market in the early morning, I came across the new pumpkin display at the Manhattan Fruit Exchange -- a sure sign that autumn has come to the city.

For our anniversary dinner, Casey and I went to Gramercy Tavern -- just hours after Michelle Obama had lunch there. (And some people freaked.) This was my first course, whole spelt spaghetti with sungold tomatoes, capers and basil. I remarked that it looked like a spaghetti cocoon.

Just 100 days to go! On the first day of autumn -- and Bruce Springsteen's birthday -- I went up to Garret Mountain for a 3-mile run on the loop road and the path around Barbour Pond. As I drove in, I caught a glimpse of this tree just starting to sprout its colors for fall. After my run, I drove the one-way loop again to stop for this shot.

An original flag from Shea Stadium, flown back in the days when they used to fly the NL cities atop the ballpark. It's so large, this is really the only wall -- at least the only undecorated one -- in the house big enough on which to display it.

Though he's jumped on the coffee table dozens of times, this was the first instance in which Harry noticed the mouse cursor on the screen and tried to get it.
This is a screengrab of the video:

Showed a friend from L.A. the High Line this afternoon before I went into work and as I looked up before heading down to street level, I noticed the sun shining on a plane high above and the sky reflected in the windows of the Caledonia condo building.

Nothing too special about this one. Was stopped at the light on 18th St. at Eighth Ave., looked over, and liked the melding of the reflections in the window and the displays in the store. I did take a more closely cropped shot first, and it shows more detail in the reflections and displays, but in the end I liked this one better.

I'd taken a shot of this colorful billboard a few weeks ago, from an angle further back on 30th St., only to have my camera and computer screw up the transfer. While not the same, this one worked out OK, too.

I actually kinda love this shot for what it isn't: accurate. It wasn't this foggy (though it sure felt like it), but the effect comes from the fact that my little Canon Powershot was in my bag next to a cold bottle of water. So when I brought it out and exposed it to the warmer, humid air, it fogged up the lens. I didn't realize it at first -- I thought it was just on the LCD screen -- and took the shot. Then I looked at the lens and saw the condensation, so this was the only shot I took.

Thursday, Sept. 10, 2009, the Tribute in Light beam rises until it meets the cloud cover. Commuters exit the PATH and Hoboken Bus Terminal. Behind me, Steelers fans drink and talk above the DJ at Texas Arizona as the NFL season prepares to kick off.

After I polished off a taste Shackburger, fries and Shackmeister Ale (probably the best beer at Citi Field), I caught the clouds and fading daylight above the old scoreboard skyline perched atop two of the Danny Meyer restaurants out beyond center field.

I tried to move around to get the streetlight from the parking lot out of the shot, but was unable to do so. Still came out pretty well, I thought.

For my birthday, I headed home to have lunch with my parents at The WindMill in Long Branch. I chose the original specifically to sit on the second-floor deck at the base of the red windmill and look out on Ocean Blvd. and the ocean. I shot the tower reflected in the back window of my mom's car as we headed up the road for ice cream at the Lighthouse.

Was killing some time in Jersey City's Journal Square while waiting for some friends to get off the PATH and so I looked around and contemplated the section's namesake. Then I thought of Herald Square and its defunct namesake and Times Square, whose paper has moved to the west and no longer actually sites on the square (which isn't a square at all, but still ...).
