Mystery Photos.

This summer while going through family photos I came across these two mystery ones.  I have no idea who the woman and the baby are.  We were having fun trying to figure out when they were taken from the bathing suits.  1950’s? What do you think.

The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge, Look-Up.

Look Up.

I can’t imagine not looking up in a city like New York where your life literally can depend on it.  A year ago, tragically a baby was killed by a falling brick from the crumbling building facade eight stories above from where her grandmother sat with her on a bench. There are too many of these stories in recent years. Fallen cranes, branches in Central Park etc. I never take for granted the dangers that do exist from above and try my best to remain aware of my surroundings at all times, that said there is also incredible beauty in the architecture here. I took this photo of The Ansonia yesterday  with my iphone.IMG_3841
