Every now and then I’ll take a photo because I’m so baffled by a situation that I need your help in making sense of it. I can’t do it on my own, people! So here are three recent ones, all collected together for your amusement. As always, click to enlarge.

This was an …I don’t know….sculpture in front of Lincoln Center. I guess it’s attractive in its own way. But a dazzling array of canoes doesn’t usually strike me as art. But what do I know? Not much, and if you’d been reading this blog for a while you’d surely know that.

As you may have already noticed, I occasionally spot things atop tall buildings. I’m usually looking for Superman, but every now and then I’ll see something strange. I mean, sure, we all walk around with mega-zoom cameras. How else to explain why you’d fly five flags from a crane no one can see with the naked eye?

Here’s something fun. A lady just setting up in the middle of my block (and I live on a quiet side street) in front of a pile of trash with a harp and commencing to play. Later on, she was gone, but I did spot a young woman inspecting that shelving unit. She didn’t take it, I have no idea why. I mean, it looks so fresh and so clean.

Yeah, I just live here, I can’t explain all the crazy people. Anyway, did you want to see some really lovely pictures of nature? The kind they only have on the Left Coast? My friend, Lisa, (not World Cup Lisa – I have a lot of Lisas in my life) is a brilliant photographer and here’s her site. If nothing else, it will keep you from having to actually go to California. Lisa doesn’t know I’m linking to her here, so let’s surprise her and all go over there!

Next post will be another edition of Jew & A but unless your question just can’t wait, don’t bother sending it in. DuJane already sent in five.
