As we celebrate Cristofero Colombo’s discovery of the new world on a random day in 1492, I thought I’d put together a little photomontage that represents random little discoveries of any given day. There’s nothing history-changing among them, no new maps need to be drawn up; no one’s going to name a day after me or parade in the streets.
Fret not, I have other plans afoot for that.
In the meantime, here’s to America, the land of Discovery and to these New York times!
I’ll start with shoes and chocolate.
I discovered that cats get possessive over their tipple and are not to be distracted when you dangle white mice above them.
That the legendary Bill Cunningham works right around the corner from me beside the Citibike station I use so the likelihood of cycling in a bike lane next to him and possibly being photographed is quite high.
That old facades are often more beautiful than new ones. New York stop tearing things down!
