This week was a fun one with the camera.  So many great shots happened my way.
But the theme I focused on was circular, so here you have a few of those shots.

Yellow - One of the big stories this week was the debate on whether to ban the use of all handheld devices while driving.
As I sat in the back of a NYC Taxi working on emails the other night -  I was suddenly thrown against the divider and really wasn't sure what happened.  Clearly I was not the cause of the accident - but I wish I had seen it coming.

So out I hopped out and figured I'd take a couple  shots while two people who didn't speak english that well argued about who's fault it was.

Blue - The sky image is one that I think makes a great desktop image - so give it a whirl and replace that silly windows or mac desktop you've had since you got your computer.

This week I was lucky enough to capture three interesting scenes.

I've always thought the tennis courts at Stevens are situated in a neat spot and this shows them off.
There was an amazing sunset glow over Louse Point near Amagansett.
And lastly, I've always wondered how a tree grows out of the side of a building - but it does.

One of the neat events which happen in the area during the summer are the outdoor movies.

There are several locations where they occur and one of the neat ones due to its unique view is in Hoboken.

Here are a couple shots from that "theatre".

For about 35 years the diner on my corner - Joe Juniors - has been a neighborhood landmark.  As I type this I can smell the bacon on the grill wafting in my window.   It seems they are in a dispute with our landlord and are slated to close this weekend.   News trucks have been by and there is a petition etc etc.

It's hard to imagine they won't be there to feed the neighborhood - and I'm not yet sure something won't break last minute since by the look of the video on ny1.com you can see the father (landlord) is admitting that his son is making a bad decision - and as a tenant having dealt with the son for some time there's no surprise there.

Here are a few shots showing the character of the place many of you probably know.
