Wall Street Shuffle, Valentine's Day

Was brought in on Valentine's Day by Yusuf's Wall Street insider
(what can I say, the man is the Prince of the City!) on the trading floor where all the action is.
Not many people get to do that and see the ringing of the bell. 
For the love of money, indeed.

My idea of Wall St. has always been informed by the Oliver Stone movie.
Watched it with my mum at age14 at Cathay cinema. It was an eye opener, to say the least!

Caught the ringing of the bell!

 Tacky shot, check!

Polar Vortex Blues, Midtown

Taken in Feb right smack in one of the worst NY winters, just outside the hotel 
and inside Grand Central Station.
Not bad for fingers that were about to break off from the cold!

 I love this picture

It wasn't all gloomy, ya know. It was actually quite bright and colourful.

Friday the 13th: Loch Ness, Inverness, Glencoe

We thought it would add to our Gothic sensibilities to revisit Loch Ness, Inverness and Glencoe on Friday the 13th. The gods gave us the gloomy weather to go with it and a driver from hell--perfect!

Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh

Gorgeous Edinburgh. It was good to be back after so long. Just a lovely, sunny evening. 
No expectations. We caught some great shots.
