I was on my way to meet up with an old friend, when I looked up and saw these beautiful colors in the evening sky. So, I made a few quick turns and raced against time to reach the top of Cobb's Hill park and snap this photo before the sky blackened for the night. As usual, I had my trusty Nikon D50 with me, so, at least I didn't have to return to my mom's apartment (where I'm staying while I visit the city I grew up in). I get to Cobb's Hill and motor the Honda up the reservoir road. All I thought to myself was, "get there asap before this beautiful light and color vanish." My thoughts were interrupted by the sudden appearance of flashing lights in my rear view mirror. Fortunately, the lights weren't red; they were yellow. "Yeah, right. You've gotta be kidding me buddy. I appreciate your help with the public safety and all, but I'm not stopping for a parking attendant..." But this guy was on my tail! Alright, alright... "Hey, what's up?" He says, "Sir, two things: 1) you're driving a little too fast- you're doing 25 and the limit is 20 (huh?); and b) (little joke from The Breakfast Club) the gates are closing, so you've gotta get out." "OK officer (uh, Mr. Security guy, how do we address these guys/ gals?)" As he proceeded to bust all of the teens and adulterous married folk making out in their steamy windowed vehicles, I rushed over to a lookout point to snap this photo. I like the result... What do you think? Comments suggestions are welcome.

I've been house-sitting and dog-sitting for about a week and a half now. The adorable, bearded collie you see above, Casey, is the 9 year-old girl I've been watching over. I've become quite attached to her in such a short time... I think she likes having me around, as well. During my first few days at the house, she was indifferent about being in the same room as me. However, now, she nuzzles right up to me and follows me everywhere. She always puts her nose under my hand, indicating that she wants me to pet her... It will be difficult to leave her on Sunday... :( Fortunately, she lives close-by, so I will visit often. I just hope that her owner doesn't become tired of seeing my face. :)
Hate to admit it, but I was at the (gulp) mall (Palisades) yesterday... I saw this classic beauty parked next to my car, and I just could not resist snapping a few quick shots of her. Thanks to the high salaried Invenstment Bankers, Wall Streeter Brokers and Traders, Celebrities, and trust fund crew, exotic cars in and around NYC are a dime-a-dozen. The Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Bentlys, Maybachs, Maserattis, Teslas, RRs, Porsches, etc. don't even turn the heads of NYers. But this beautiful DeLorean caught my attention... No knock against Michael J. Fox, but the DeLorean was the star of Back to the Future... Here's a little history of the DeLorean Motor Company, its rapid demise and current status: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DeLorean_Motor_Company
