    I know that it is very hard to tell how fond I am of this particular picture. It's just a building right? Bergdorf Goodman by the way. Really just a lonely photo from a area that is always packed with tourist.

    This picture has been an obsession for me. For years I've been standing in this same spot that still seems to have the energy of teenage girls screaming for the Beatles to come out for their hotel room. I've been standing there when the light is just right and the former GM building is acting as a giant reflector to light Bergdorf's just because I'm so fond of the tree line and the way the reflection falls on that off white building.

    Every time I tried there was always at least one person in the foreground and I wanted it empty. I wanted it to be about cobblestones and marble with those Christmas trees packed into the fountain but it never happened. More often it was more like twenty or thirty people in the foreground but some days it seemed like a plot, like one person had the job of lollygagging until another came along to take up space.  

    Now I've got it. I can't help but be tickled pink over this not too impressive photo. So click on the photo and then click one more time when it opens in a new window. Linger a while, then you can see that The Intouchables is playing at the Paris and that the GM building brings out the pink of Bergdorf Goodman.
