Taxidrops falling on my head

Another great illustration from James Gulliver Hancock- All the buildings in New York. Everything that comes to NY is making me awfully and wonderfully nostalgic...

Brighton rock.

I've just been invited on my friend Elena's show on the radio, to talk about my english experience. I read an extract of Graham Greene's Brighton Rock.

"HALE knew they meant to murder him before he had been in Brighton three hours. With his inky fingers and his bitten nails, his manner cynical and nervous, anybody could tell he didn't be- long belong to the early summer sun, the cool Whit- sun wind off the sea, the holiday crowd. They came in by train from Victoria every five minutes, rocked down Queen's Road standing on the tops of the little local trams, stepped off in bewildered multitudes into fresh and glittering air : the new silver paint sparkled on the piers, the cream houses ran away into the west like a pale Victorian water-colour; a race in miniature mo- tors, a band playing, flower gardens in bloom below the front, an aeroplane advertising something for the health in pale vanishing clouds across the sky.

Last Walk in Brooklyn

Poetry on a building,

Like my little Albee,

What is this, "Pimp my ride"? Really cool!

Eyes on New York Nº7

In Williamsburg. Brooklyn.
on the sidewalk,
on the wall.


The last day in NY, we went to Coney Island. Was a funnily quiet place (middle of september), except for a DJ on the boardwalk (!) in the middle of the afternoon, with people dancing and all...

It must have been something at the beginning of the XXth Century!

Makes me think that I've been watching Boardwalk Empire during the past 2 weeks. The plot, the set, the actors, the music, the COSTUMES!!!, everything makes it a good series! Highly recomended!

Hope you are having fun in your lives!

The more I see you...

Just heard Chet Baker on the radio.

What is there to say?

Just look at these pictures and listen to some of his music...

People ask you "what do you do now?"


"Oh, and do you have any projects?"


"Ah, and what do you want to do?"

"I just told you I didn't have any projects..."

"Interesting, what are the things you like?..."

and so on.

How do you tell -without being rude- the 50th person asking you the same questions that you can't bear it anymore?

Apparently, there's a "beautification project" in Bushwick. Works for me.

Eyes on New York Nº4-Brooklyn Street Art-1

I can definitely say that my favorite area was Brooklyn in general. It felt like home. People seemed real. Streets were artistically alive. Colourful.

On the corner of our street, Jefferson st. in Bushwick.

On Kent or Wythe ave. in Williamsburg, I don't remember...

Fave NYC outfit.

Our first week in NY was so hot and sunny that I think I wore this skirt every other day... I can't get enough of that mustard colour and of those flying swallows print.

Eyes on New York Nº2-City Animals

While you walk along in Midtown Manhattan, you might come across city cuddlies.

Goliath may have lost his teddy...

...but this truck driver takes his all around!

Eyes on New York Nº1-City Lights

Finally, I got the digital pictures uploaded to my computer. So I'll try to do some little series of snaps I took in the Big Apple. To begin with, all sorts of lights...

Grand Central chandelier,

bedside fifties,

Bklyn Bdg lamppost and...

...messenger yellow traffic light.
