In Black, in Soho

Soho, nyc Photo by myself in Soho.

Well, that cliche that New Yorkers wear black is very true.

I'm not sure why it is the case. Partly, I think, because the city is terribly dirty. If you were to wear a white jacket, it would pick up the city grime very quickly, from riding on the subway.

Most of my own clothes are in the same color scheme - black, grey, brown, navy and dark green.

Lately I've gone into some 'color', like purple. I look very out of place on my trips to the west coast, like I'm at a funeral (!). Happy Friday everyone!

Really cool details in this photo, starting with the two principals, but also fading left to the pedestrians and the buildings and the change in lighting. First rate!

I don't think you'd be out of place in Vancouver Kitty. Black seems to be the predominant colour here.

One day I was very depressed and it struck me that everyone was wearing black, block after block. I went straight home and put on a yellow tee shirt

A black dress code makes it easier to pack when I visit. Love it. :-)
