Outside Looking In
It is 4th July, fireworks are rumbling out there in the far distance and I should love to show you
some spectacular shots but . . . that's not going to happen. Instead of celebrating with family
and friends, all of whom happen to live in other countries, we have had a quiet evening at home
on the sofa catching up with Game of Thrones.
At times I feel as though we might be missing out on a Ralph Lauren /Tommy Hilfiger lifestyle
fashion shoot of celebrating with family and friends and firing up the grill but hey, this is
New York, city of immigrants, of whom I am one.
Independence Day to me is a little like Thanksgiving, celebrations of a rich cultural heritage
which have me more than a little on the outside looking in but that's OK because while I am on the
outside looking in I enjoy watching you have all the fun!
The clock has just ticked over into the 5th but Happy 4th July everyone. Hope it was a good one!
The bulk of the above photos were taken at a rally to "Restore the Fourth" protest against the NSA down
at Federal Hall on Wall Street, which considering how hot it was today, passed quite peacefully and
A day for keeping it cool.
