Photo by myself at the 34th Street subway station, in Midtown.
I've taken a few photos of the Alex Lo Dico Ensemble, at the subway station above. Tuesday evening, I was standing behind two columns and two saxophonists from the band.
This group never fails to thrill me because they so obviously love what they do. And the music they create is loud, brash and terrific. You can often hear them playing from the subway platforms, one or two levels below.
I haven't posted a photo of Rupert in little a while. He's been getting requests for an appearance.
Photo by myself, somewhere in the East Village.
Above, a doggie meet-and-greet on an East Village street corner. Several small dogs took a whiff during one recent visit.
It might seem like small dogs dominate New York, but not so. Smaller dogs might be more portable on the subway*, but dogs of all sizes can be found here. Some of Rupert's favorite buddies are a Newfoundland and a German Shepherd, who live nearby.
*Only seeing-eye dogs or dogs in a carrier are allowed on the subway.
