View From the Corner Office

This is a painting of the Greek Revival building on Park Avenue South at, I believe, East 25th Street. It's across from Madison Square Park. It houses the New York State Supreme Court's Appellate Division. I wandered around taking pictures of this building for almost an hour, so I'm sure that my face is now in some Homeland Security database for facial recognition. The price we pay for art.

Arch Madness

Approaching Philadelphia there are all of these different rail lines running along, over, and under each other. They have all been built in various eras so they were engineered and built accordingly. This one was apparently built during the Roman Empire. I was thinking of calling it "...Why Not a Chicken?"

The Shadow

This is a section of track just outside of Newark, New Jersey. The tran dips down into something of a trench lined on both sides with these great stone walls. The shadow is from, for lack of better term a signal trestle.
