Moss (Ancramdale, NY)

I walked through a pine forest today and was moved to take this photo of moss. It's so lush and complex, a wonderful ecosystem. People say that when it's all over, only the rats and cockroaches will be left. But I hope moss makes it to the other side as well.

Carol (Midtown, Manhattan)

Todd Haynes, director, and Christine Vachon, in a q&a about their film Carol at the Paris Theater. Then afterward, they went outside and snapped a photo of the marquee, right. I love how even totally amazing and accomplished filmmakers don't take the wonder of their accomplishments (as evidenced by the beautifully understated, class Paris marquee) for granted.

The Old (Upper) West (Side), Manhattan Valley

I'm not sure of the provenance of this cowboy. Street art? A long hidden Marlboro Man (or figure from another even more ancient ad campaign) newly revealed after the demolition of a neighboring building? In any event, I'm glad he's getting some air while there's still air and bit of blue sky to enjoy.
