Top Ten Thursday : Photo Day

This week's Top Ten Thursday is random photos of your day or any theme you choose.

Here are photos I took in Manhattan on a day off:
inside the underground subway
01/ inside the underground subway — I actually take the subway 3 or 4 times a day if I don't want to walk, it's just a great way to travel around the city, this is the Canal St. stop passageway

artwork I saw while walking by
02/ artwork I saw while walking by — I think it's a Vincent Van Gogh painting but the color is just too blue though

ordinary morning
03/ ordinary morning with smoke from an underground pipe — totally normal though I still wonder about the smoke so I mostly avoid walking in those area

Atlas statue outside 30 Rockefeller Center
04/ Atlas statue outside 30 Rockefeller Center, fifth avenue entrance —  I actually come out of this entrance often when I want to get to fifth avenue, the subway exit/entrance is below Rockefeller Center

fearless girl / the wall street bull
05/ fearless girl at Broadway & Morris Street — this is one of most popular photo space, totally crowded during all hours, I shot the girl at 9 am and I sort of stood there until people move away and barely captured this shot before I gave up because tourist keeps standing next to it to take a photo (the bull photo is taken a few years ago)

And here are things seen but not photographed on that same day, either because I missed my chance because the subject moved too quickly or because I decided not to photograph them because I'm a dummy.

05B/ a bus that said 'Procrastination is not a bad thing' — no idea what the ad is for as the bus moved too fast for my eyes but I totally agreed with it

05C/ a man asking if anyone needs a good husband because he's new in town & all — he appeared to be a bit worn and tired and pulling a cart full of stuff behind him

05D/ an old lady with beautiful pink here on the street — I wanted to stop her and ask to take her photograph but I guess my shy self decided to show spunk and refused to allow me to do just that

05E/ a young lady with bright red short hair on the train — her hair was gorgeous! & yes, I seem to have a habit of looking at people's pretty hair

05F/ an Elvis Presley impersonator dressed in black and red — he didn't look like Elvis but the outfit was interesting

05G / a poet for hire with his typewriter in union square — actually there were a lot of weird characters in that park, chest players, all types of acts and also that day is market day in that area so lots of vegetables, plants, flowers, cheese...

And here's some sky shots from a different day because I didn't take enough photos:
walking toward the Brooklyn Bridge
06/ walking toward the Brooklyn Bridge — I used to walk the Brooklyn Bridge a lot but now maybe every other year

helicopters in the clouds
07/ helicopters in the clouds — those tiny dots at right are helicopters

view from the Brooklyn Bridge
08/ view from the Brooklyn Bridge — do you see a man with white eyebrows in the clouds? guess it's just me

the Brooklyn Bridge
09/ the Brooklyn Bridge — the path toward the the Brooklyn Bridge started out as smooth pavement but then it changes to wooden planks which I sometimes find it a bit weak and even scary to walk upon but maybe it's because I'm high up because sometimes being that high does things to my mind. does anyone else feels the wooden planks are rather too weak to walk on?

looking up at the sky of trees in Bryant Park
10/ looking up at the sky of trees in Bryant Park — Bryant Park is a great place to look up at bare trees and also have your lunch there if you can find a spot because it's crowded during the lunch hours

Seen anything interesting today?
