Big Apple photographic bonanza

At long last, I have posted several of the best photographs that I took in New York City early last month. I was lucky to enjoy fine weather during my brief visit, with unusually clear blue skies for a big city; the conditions were perfect for taking pictures. Take a look at the New York 2008 photo gallery page. It includes a "dynamic image" that lets you compare the four New York baseball stadiums to each other: Shea Stadium, Citi Field, and both the old and new Yankee Stadiums. Within a few months, two of those old stadiums will be gone forever. Then follow the usual New York landmarks, including this particularly relevant one:

Nice Pictures of the Greatest City in the World :) Interesting tidbits on Madison Square Garden...Tex Rickard, a boxing promoter, sought to bring an NHL team to NY to compete with the (now defunct) New York Americans. His team was nicknamed Tex's Rangers (a play on words) and the name stuck. Tex then decided to build another arena in Boston called "Boston Madison Square Garden." It would later be shortened to Boson Garden. Lots of quirky stuff in NY (if you look hard enough:))

blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
