Latest Links

Not being able to come up with a post of any note, I am once again resorting to posting links.

A new smartphone app is a game changer for people who are blind or who have limited vision.

A fun Kickstarter to support, especially if you love libraries.

A reminder of a fun little photo project I'm working on with a friend: The Adventures of Murray, Just a Regular Invisible Guy.

I love this! The Game of Thrones theme, Western version.

Guardians of the Galaxy fans, we can now own a jacket just like Star Lord's!

These people posing with statues are just so clever.

John Stewart explain climate change in terms anyone should be able to understand.

The Adventures of Murray the Invisible Guy

So that collaborative photo project I briefly mentioned a short while back? It's underway. It's mostly a way for a friend and me to play together despite living nowhere near each other. We'll be taking turns on a weekly basis posting photos of Murray, Just a Regular Invisible Guy who usually wears only a pair of red high-top sneakers. You can follow his adventures on flickr here and here, and on Facebook.

A Few Things

A few links for your enjoyment.

This photo was taken on Park Avenue in midtown Manhattan and has me wondering just how someone could lose a sock in that business neighborhood.

Hello September

I really didn't realize how long it's been since my last post. Somehow, September sneaked up on me. I've been too busy stressing over a package I mailed 3-day Priority that apparently took a tour of the southeastern coast of the US before heading west to its destination, finally being delivered today, a day short of a week past its scheduled date of delivery. It contained something for a collaborative photo project, so I was a bit anxious that it arrive safely. More on that project soon, I hope.

Otherwise, I've been out taking lots of photos, but no new chocolate entered my life. *sigh*

Dog Days of Summer

A hot, humid day here in NYC, so here's a cup of melting chocolate gelato from the L'Arte del Gelato stand at the High Line park.

The Joy of Babka

Good chocolate babka is a special treat and the chocolate babka from Russ and Daughters is amazing. Kind of a mix between a bread and pastry, infused with chocolate, a chocolate babka typically comes in a loaf. Russ and Daughters sells wrapped chunks and I can't recall seeing as much chocolate as they stuff in their babkas.

Tiny Figures Harvest the Chocolate from the Babka

Here are some yummy looking, other babka offerings in New York City, and more here at Serious Eats. Russ and Daughters isn't on either list, probably because it's more of a deli than a bakery. But if you happen to be on East Houston Street in Manhattan, over by Orchard Street, pop in and try a hunk of this chocolatey goodness.
