bonjour new york

One of the things I love about New York is that people do all sorts of things on the street. They play music on the street. They dance on the street. They take elephants for walks down the street. They also scream at each other on the street, but I don't enjoy that part so much.

We were having lunch the other day in our neighborhood, and I looked up from my table and saw this.



This adorable man was painting a picture of our restaurant. I'm not sure if he was French or not, but he had the whole frenchy theme going. Even the hand on the hip.




His painting was quite charming and really captured the location.





But, it didn't capture the irrational manager who earlier had refused my request to push two tables together to sit outside. I'm sure he thought that would have spoiled his picture.

Michelle, What kind of camera do you have and do you happen to always have it on you? You take fantastic shots and I have imagined your camera to be pretty big. Weird question? Sorry!

I love this!!!! That picture is amazing, I wish I could handle water color like that! These types of paintings are my favorite to pick up from my travels around to new cities. My mom has our Amsterdam trip, and Venice trip hanging in her house!

Katie- Thanks for the photo compliments. I have a Nikon D50 with a hug lens. It is big, but I try to carry it with me wherever I go because I love the shots I can get from it. :-)

I walked right past that scene over the weekend. Must have walked past you as you were having lunch.

So, was the food as good as the scenery?

I like your blog and enjoy reading posts about you and your family, but had to post something in response to this;
"I'm not sure if he was French or not, but he had the whole frenchy theme going. Even the hand on the hip."

What is that? Have you never traveled or were you trying to be amusing?

Anonymous...The whole blog is supposed to be amusing. It's how I choose to deal with my life instead of paying for expensive therapy.
