On Gotham City and a Rupert Update

Dark Knight, Times Square Photo by myself in Times Square, at 42nd Street and Broadway.

The lights and movie billboards in Times Square make for easy photos. Huge signage for the Batman movie loomed above the typical crowds of people.

Billboards were layered against different types of glass on one of the modern towers. The trusses holding the building up can be seen through the glass.

I walked through this area on Wednesday night. We'd had heavy rain in the morning and it was still very humid after work.

I'm not sure whether it registers to New Yorkers that the Gotham City in the Batman movies is our fair city? The term 'Gotham' is used only occasionally and only in the press. People don't mention 'Gotham' in typical conversation.

My fiance Mark is still in LA until this weekend, where he's finishing up a project for work. While we were away last weekend, our dog Rupert was being cared for by his dog sitters.

Daily Photoblogger Rose from Oz asked what New Yorkers do with their pets when they travel. Most board their dogs, have walkers come by or even leave their pets with friends.

Rupert and I had a nice reunion Tuesday night. He was very hungry and romped for an extended time, playing fetch, his favorite game.

Here's a recent photo of him with his buddy Duchess, a border collie, in Prospect Park. They had just romped around and look happy as a couple clams.

Aw Kitty great to hear dear Rupert was in excellent hands. Lovely pic of Rupert and his friend - I am amazed to see a Border Collie in NYC!! They both look like a cool dip would be nice!
I really like the type of street photo in your post today, it makes me really look as sometimes there is more going on than first meets the eye. I am pleased to said about the trusses though, as I would have missed them!

Great to have you back from LaLa Land. Too bad Mark is still there. Rupert is one happy pup. Great shot of Times Square. I'd love to see this at night if your in the mood sometime after work.
