Orangent you glad that Murray Head sends me photographs to post? 


Even though it’s Saturday, these photos were taken on Friday so they still count as our FAB FOTO FRIDAY featured photographs.  You’ve heard of Sunday in the Park with George, this is Friday in the park with Murray!

If you have been following the blog or FAB FOTO FRIDAYS you know that a while ago I featured an art installation on Dag Hammerskjold Plaza near the United Nations.  It is called Borders with human-like sculptures posed standing and sitting in the park.  Today is MAY DAY! In additions to the Borders “people”, Dag Hammerskjold Plaza was home to a true May Day celebration.

Fridays are for Fotos and as you know I have several recurring themes.  I love RED is Where You Find It which is really a sub-category of ART is Where You Find It and then there’s ONLY in NEW YORK because my city is an ever-changing canvas replete with people who live or visit New York City, truly the Capitol of the World,  as well as art installations, parades, tourist attractions and above all (no pun intended) the City itself with its Skyscraper Skyline.

My favorite photographer, Murray, was out and about down in the Flatiron, Madison Square Park area the other day and yes he does leave Central Park once in a while lol.  Anyway, he took some very interesting photographs of some of the more distinct and unusual buildings in that neighborhood.  Or maybe other than the Flatiron Building (one of my two very favorite buildings in NYC), the buildings are not so unusual BUT you know where I’m going with this….the eye of the camera as seen with the eye of the artist produced some beautiful shots and here they are.

Some people think New York City is a lonely place and they couldn’t be more WRONG!  You never have to be alone in this city especially if you live in the East 40’s,  specifically Dag  Hammarskjold Plaza.  There’s always some art installations around the City.  If you think back, I’ve published photos of many.  such as the giant flowers on Park Avenue in the snow,  the fanciful creatures of   Tom Otterness and now there is a veritable crowd of not quite humans and not quite androids and they have taken up residence in this famous plaza near the United Nations.  They seem friendly enough although not great conversationalists!
