Power Color

Power Color

WTF is going on here?!
Is his shirt really THAT pink?
I think this guy is taking his business power colors a little too seriously.
It’s actually a building across the street that has purple tints on it, reflecting pink light back on to the pink man.The photo isn’t manipulated with fake pink color.

Scream?

Scream?

I know it’s a little late for Halloween but I thought I’d post this sooner than later.
I was waiting to cross the street and these kids in scream masks were on the other side. Halloween in NYC is pretty amazing. Especially for a photographers. Usually when people are wearing costumes, they don’t mind you taking a photo of them. Sometimes, they might even pose for you. A second or two before this moment, they were in the middle of the street facing each other in a circle. They started to tilt their heads left and right, raising their hands in a ‘Why?’ gesture (like in the photo). I still have no idea what they were doing.

Whirling Doves

What do you think birds are doing when they circle around in large flocks like this?
There are many theories I read on the net. They circle around for prey or to avoid being prey. They are navigating before leaving. It’s a mating ritual, etc. To be completely honest with you, I think they’re just flying around. Having fun with the winds. Partying, enjoying life. The immensely large buildings like the U.N. (shown here) in cities create strange wind patterns. And it’s always in big cities that I see pigeons like these flying in circles. Quick trivia here: Pigeons are actually called Rock Doves because they nest along the coastal cliffs in the rocks. Also, baby pigeons are called squabs.
