I'm not going to deny that I was totally excited to stumble upon "Monk's" from Seinfeld on my trip to Cathedral of St. John the Divine in the upper West Side. Total bonus as I did not really know where I was venturing to.
To begin the day...
A lot going on in this image. The day started in Grand Central. I remembered that I saw a sign the week before about a big squash tournament in Grand Central. There were a couple of girls practicing in the court. I was an avid tennis player for a number of years, until I got around the 3.5/4.0 level and then the ladies I played with got agressive. I started not to enjoy it. My final tennis game was when a woman hit me so hard in my calf with the ball that I ended up wtih a blood clot, emergency ultrasound, etc, and a bruise that lasted several months.
Squash looks like the definition of FEAR for me, this tiny ball flying around the court hit super hard by girls that looked like the definition of strong and serious. Don't sign me up for cardio (here).
The girlfriend was fawning all over Agent Moulder.
Times Square subway area; love the guy in the middle of the pic mid stride.
My view as I climbed out of the subway (and really didn't know where I was or what direction to head to the Cathedral). But the area looked safe enough (and it was). This was the first time I have ever ridden the subway alone.
Needed a snack and a water. I didn't even notice the Expect a Miracle Today painting until I looked at my photos. THIS is one reason I'm doing this project, to notice all that is around me.
The Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The cathedral has an interesting story, a mix of architectures on the inside...and it's not complete. My tour guide said it will likely never get finished.
They had a number of art displays going on in the cathedral. I found many to be a bit odd and out of place.
I couldn't resist a picture of "Dear Tomato"....
My tour guide on the right. This was another "art project" the cathedral had on display. This one was growing plants and vegetable under LED lights.
9/11 memorial in the church. There were stigmatas on the palms of her hands.
Favorite photo of the day!
Until the next Magic Monday!
