Photo by myself in Union Square Park.
Over the weekend, Mark, Rupert and I encountered the above scene. A little girl was quite perplexed by a man in costume.
An older man (not pictured) noticed the adult-sized bumblebee, too. He said gruffly to no one in particular: 'An eff-ing bumblebee????!'
Both Mark and I have seen the bumblebee before, so we were not so shocked. What was shocking was how many drunk people were in Union Square Park. Lot of them. Many benches were taken up by people who were drunk by mid-day and who looked rather scruffy.
I'm not sure whether it's due to the economy or whether I was just more sensitive to it that day. It was very sad.
