The Shake Shack

I managed to get my husband out of the house, if ever so briefly (deadlines!), for chocolate shakes and veggie burgers from the Shake Shack. We also took a quick spin around the local flea market. We came away with a carton of homemade pickles, a wood drawer and a little car without a wheel. We also managed the trip without a stroller. A victory, that.

Henry Kitty

My husband found this delightful kitty (who he named Henry) outside our front door last night. He really has a wonderful, sweet personality and is so incredibly friendly. My husband is not keen on the idea of another cat (we already have one) so he carted him off to the local shelter this morning. If you would like a delightful kitty, let me know, I'll make sure you two meet!

P.S. And yes, I would like to keep him. Wouldn't he make a great Valentine's Day gift?

Coney Island Polar Bear Plunge 1.01.11

Every January 1st, my husband and I (and now with our son) ride the train out to Coney Island so that he can participate in the Polar Bear Plunge. It's a total blast. The night before I always run in the Midnight Run in Central Park. It's a fantastic way to celebrate the New Year.

One of these photos is quite blurry - but I decided I kind of like it anyway. It was shot right before my camera had a serious problem - caused by myself. I'd wrapped the film around the wrong spool, inexplicably. Note to self: don't do that.

My Pops

My father always had a lot of brilliant photo books laying around the house while I was growing up (Diane Arbus, for one). I love this photo of him. He has a great eye.

P.S. According to my father, this was taken by his good friend (they are still friends) around 1950 or 1951. They were on a photo shoot together! And guess what? They BOTH still go out on photo shoots.

My Dog Ben

We lost our beloved dog Ben last week. You can find more photos of him here.
