Well I just can’t seem to stay out of Mauritania. It’s such a pretty paint scheme and the build is a little out of the ordinary, but still familiar. This is a variation of a regular old GP15, only modified for switching duties in high temp and desert conditions. Supposedly they venture on the road occasionally too. Here’s a GPL15 when new in New York and they even
age well in the desert.

Well I did promise a shot other than the water taxi ride, but sorry water still in this shot

with the bleak weather here over the last almost 2 weeks, I thought I would post a shot from a nicer day from Central Park, also I thought i was over due for posting another shot of the Gapstow bridge

Thanks for the suggestion on the crop I fully agree the plants at the bottom should have been cropped out

Comments appreciated, Constructive critique even more appreciated, best way for me to learn

I’m telling you, Lucy, he took one look at those stockings of yours, and he started running away — *that* way — as fast as he could!

Note: this photo was published in a Jan 1, 2011 Get A New Phone blog, with the same title as the caption that I used on this Flickr page.


This is a continuation of a Flickr set that I started in the summer of 2009. As I noted in that earlier collection of photos, I still have many parts of New York City left to explore — but I’ve also realized that I don’t always have to go looking elsewhere for interesting photographs. Some of it is available just outside my front door.

I live on a street corner on the Upper West Side of Manhattan where there’s an express stop on the IRT subway line (with a new space-age subway station scheduled to be completed by fall 2010), as well as a crosstown bus stop, an entrance to the West Side Highway, and the usual range of banks, delis, grocery stores, fast-food shops, mobile-phone stores, drug-stores, Dunkin’ Donuts, Starbucks, Subway, and other commercial enterprises. As a result, there are lots of interesting people moving past my apartment building, all day and all night long.

It’s easy to find an unobtrusive spot on the edge of the median strip separating the east side of Broadway from the west side; nobody pays any attention to me as they cross the street from east to west, and nobody even looks in my direction as they cross from north to south (or vice versa). In rainy weather, sometimes I huddle under an awning of the T-Mobile phone store on the corner, so I can take pictures of people under their umbrellas, without getting my camera and myself soaking wet…

So, these are some of the people I thought were photo-worthy during the past few weeks and month; I’ll add more to the collection as the year progresses … unless, of course, other parts of New York City turn out to be more compelling from time to time.
