I've been traveling, hence zero time for blogging. I spent a very pleasant weekend in Manhattan, (followed by London and Ireland). Actually pleasant is probably not the right description of a weekend with an old college friend who was over from Ireland visiting his brother. Mildly debauched, actually on Saturday night it was quite debauched. It's been a long time since I was last up late enough to see the dawn. All in all it hit the right notes of drinking, eating, catching some music, sight seeing and shopping.

It was pissing rain while I was in the taxi from JFK, and the freeway was at a standstill. The driver decided to take local streets through Brooklyn to get to the East Village, where my mate was in a bar and had a pint with my name on it. It was the right decision, we made it from the airport in 40 minutes. I snapped this as we traversed the Williamsburg Bridge looking towards Midtown.

Luckily the weather eased off and was perfectly pleasant for the rest of the weekend.

I just stumbled upon your blog by way of common interest in the movie "Inherit the Wind." And then notice your movie list also included "12 Angry Men" and "To Kill a Mockingbird," in addition to "Catch 22" on the reading list. All of which makes me think I must unwittingly fit some sort of stereotype.

But anyway, I like the blog and especially dig the photography. I'll be sure to stop back.

Welcome James,

Seems like we have enven more in common, I notice endurance sports in your list!


It was a great recovery present to myself! I have signed up for the San Jose tri next weekend, but training has been spotty since Wildflower, and it's my 40th b'day today so this weekend may be a wash also ;)
