The photograph that inspired this post. The pink sky is perfect for Pink Saturday. I took this picture looking west at Christopher Street towards the Hudson River.
To my somewhat complete amazement it's getting close to the end of the year. I think I blinked and the days flew from August to November. I put together a list of things to do for Christmas and Chanukah last week and I'm beginning to think about places to visit to take pictures for end of the year blog posts. I realize I've skipped a number of posts I intended to write -- coffee especially has been neglected -- but I'm also glad that life is filled with many things I want to write about. One thing I've accomplished is to get up and walk just about every day. Some days I know where I will be going and some days it's much more random. Today's plan was semi-random. I was heading downtown to pick up some socks I saw last week. The socks were sold out, but I had a fabulous walk from Tribeca in Lower Manhattan to West 19th Street in Chelsea.
While I was in Lower Manhattan -- at Church Street looking southeast -- I looked up and saw this combination of architectural styles from the last two centuries in one glance. The area where I was walking still has many blocks of nineteenth century buildings and the cobblestone streets to go with them. Though I know change is inevitable I appreciate preservation and especially enjoy my walks through areas with the most buildings from "older" New York.
It's a pleasure to actually do my Pink Saturday blog post on Saturday. I hope everyone had a day as pleasant as mine and wishes for a very happy Sunday. Thanks for visiting!
