THE PHOTOS YOU MISS

So many photographers I admire often talk about the photographic moments they miss in a day. Some keep records of them. I can see why. If you can't capture them you can at least write about them. Here were mine today:

- A velvet painting like cake with an exact replica of a woman's face on it given to the woman featured on the cake

- A man carrying the body of a tuba in one hand (no case) and the giant bell of the tuba in the other in the subway

- A woman with pearl white hair in the exact shape of a basketball

- A young guy carrying a brown paper bag with a pot plant in it (I know because I thought I was seeing things and then ran into him again moments later in the deli where he caused quite a flurry of giggles)

- An old man with a sad face sitting in front of a window featuring vintage Marilyn Monroe posters

- A man resembling the stereotype of a 'mobster' chewing on a toothpick with aviator shades on and a white T-shirt that read "I'm a Psychic"

- A man dressed in a blazer with many buttons on it eating a tiny pink donut with sprinkles

Sometimes I think to myself, "Only in New York!" but then again I'm not so sure.

Years ago, when I was commuting to NYC, I walked by one of those big, imposing banks down around 34th St. or so. There were trees planted in concrete containers all along the curb. Sure enough, every spring pot plants would grow uo in those containers. The amazing thing was that they lasted as long as they did.

Your words are as good as the photos would have been.

Awesome moments, not not unique to New York, completely...

In the Cincinnati Airport, in the terminal to Vegas, I saw two HUGE brute leather-clad Hispanic mobsters...eating ice cream cones.
