Here are some random photos I took in New York City last week that didn't make it into my earlier blog posts but which I really like.
Where else but NYC would you see a guy on a street corner with a snake who would let your kid wear it and you take a picture for a suggested donation of only $10?
This guy in Central Park obviously didn't read the sign about Strawberry Fields being a "quiet zone", he was signing Beatles tunes when we passed by, and not very well. :(
This was my favourite bus shelter ad:

Loved the mosaics eyes around the security camera bubble in the subway station near the World Trade Center. A clever way to let people know Big Brother is watching them!
I was impressed with these soda bottles, made out of aluminum. Why did it take so long for somebody to think of this?!
A plaque on the ground along the Avenue of the Americas with a warning for pedestrians that the sidewalk doesn't actually belong to Americans:
And last but not least, I took this photo as we taxied down the runway for takeoff and didn't notice the bird on the pier until after I downloaded the photo when I got home!
