I was in New York City (again) the last few days to check out a couple of concerts and to catch up with friends.
I didn't know it at the time, but the man in this picture became my 500th blog posting. Can you believe it's been 500 already? (see archives for some of the rubbish I've produced). This is picture, of course, is taken in Times Square. I am not sure who this man is (he seemed like a pro), but I do know that he was definitely prepared. At one point, he busted out a tripod that appeared to be on stilts; he was up about 8 feet up from the ground and needed to stand on a chair to look through his viewfinder. I am sure the lady friend he was with was very amused.
