|Graffiti on shutter, New York
When I see those signs, I can't quite believe that we are heading for the real Jamaica. But yes, we are!!
Yesterday, still fighting a cold, (it had better be gone within the next 24 hours!) I wandered around the Lower East Side. It was the colours and textures, rather than the touristy-scenes-and-famous-landmarks of the city that attracted my attention.
Peeling paint and graffiti. Bricks and stone. Boards and hoarding. Painted metal shutters and cobbled streets.

And then Sunday; a walk up 6th Avenue, Bryant Park, reflections in the windows, a blue sky with scudding clouds.

A cold, chill breeze is rising. Snow flurries are forecast for tomorrow. We will be flying away from all that.
