Around the Fountain, at Lincoln Center and Humans of New York

Lincoln Center, uws Photo by myself at Lincoln Center, on the Upper West Side.

The fountain at Lincoln Center is the ideal place to sit, watch people and take a break. People enjoyed the cooling effects of the water, Tuesday night.

We've been having some awfully hot and humid weather the last few days, following a whole week of rain. The people in the photo above look very composed and relaxed, but don't be fooled. It was oppressively muggy.

The stone bench surrounding the central fountain looks as if it's floating in air. In actuality, it is supported by a few well-placed legs. You can just barely see one on the far left in the photo below.

Lincoln Center is the headquarters for the New York City Ballet, Philharmonic and Metropolitan Opera. Also located in the area are the Film Society, Jazz at Lincoln Center and the Julliard School of Music.

Apologies for my sporadic posting, folks! With all the heat, I've been very lazy.

I was inspired out of my lethargy by a website called Humans of New York, by a photographer named Brandon Stanton.

Brandon goes around taking photos, sometimes several a day, and sometimes conducting short interviews with random New Yorkers. He is supremely talented, and his color portraits are beyond compelling, telling the multi-faceted stories of New Yorkers.

Be sure to check out a short video showing him rolling around in the street, while photographing of a guy on a Harley. Seriously good stuff.
