SS United States (night)

The SS United States remains in Philadelphia at this time. Rumor has it, the ship will be moved into a graving dock for an inspection. Some years ago, I was testing a camera at night and took this footage.

The ship had ghost-like feel that night. In any case, she retains the record for fastest transatlantic voyage. It will be interesting to see if she gets a new life. Stay tuned!

Keys

There’s a key for every lock, or so the saying goes. I found literally thousands of keys welded into a giant work of art covering the outside of a locksmith shop on 7th Avenue in New York City. Here’s a close up:

Surely catches the eye and advertises at the same time. ¬†Imagine all the keys you’ve had over the years. Probably a couple of hundred. Anyway, put them to good use, lock something up!

Glimpse of the past…

New York City has the habit of tearing things down and building new on a regular basis. Nonetheless, in various places you can still find a glimpse into the past, such as this private mews with row houses intact:

That’s quite a nice space in there, giving a view to how NYC might have looked more than a hundred years ago. Don’t forget to stop and check things out. Enjoy the journey.

Guard Dog

Stopped in to see some friends a couple of days ago at their business, which happens to be a beer distributorship. Their dog was guard duty as you see here:

His name is Rocco, by the way.
