The letters of our thoughts are the ideas present in our mind before they come to realization . . . Thoughts that are, yet not felt . . . The words of the subconscious . . . of the soul . . .

These are the LETTERS OF MY THOUGHTS.

MoMA with Mama



Corny name aside, click on the link to see the photos of Manhattan.

The other day marked the end of my mother's grand trip to the east coast (Photographing a wedding here in Crown Height, Shavuos in Montreal by my Grandparents etc.)
Before she left for Cali, we decided to take a stroll around Manhattan . . .



They say only tourists look up in New York. I normally try to look like a local, but with a SLR strapped on my back, I figured I'd take advantage of the image and do some neck craning.

BS"D

Yasher koiach! I am a former Manhattanite and I rarely had the chance to notice the beauty of the city or its architecture. Ditto for Crown Heights - when I am there I am there to be in the community and I rarely pay attention to the surroundings.

Everyone is London always says "I hate tourists, staring in the sky and not looking where they are going..." - well one day I thought I would check out what they were all staring at, and it's a cool world up there! I must admit since my discovery I have even held up a few crowds my self!

Again your photos make me miss NY like mad

Thank you both for you compliments.
You can always make the trip back to the City (Brooklyn that is :P) and we'll do lunch . . .

A better title would be "MoMA with Momma."

Mottel said...

-Thanks Sef.
-That was the original name . . . but I just never call my mother that, so I changed it.

You shoulda titled it, "MoMA with Mama." ;)

Whoops! Didn't read the comments first. Heh. Well, I AM the Queen of Corn, right? No, wait, it was cheese.

Great pics. I like the "Yerida Zu" one..

It seems like popular demand then . . . MoMA with Mama it shall be -In any event the URL of the post said mama the whole time.

I guess external titles will never hide what's going on inside (the url that is).
