Coriolistic Anachronisms


New York Through the Eyes of a Visitor

Marie and I were recently walking around the Big Apple with her mother, visiting from South Africa. This was not a first visit but I always ponder what the visitor could see that I don’t, so this time I logged my camera along, as did Marie.

Here are glimpses of what our guest might have seen, as her eyes drifted hesitantly across the cityscape and her brain must have fought bravely to process such information overload.

It is so easy to start taking our surroundings for granted, thus eroding the precious sixth sense called curiosity. A camera and the desire to see the world through someone else’s eyes are great remedies to that loss.

    These images are stunning. Those cabs…that’s killer.

    You’re so right, Marie dear. You’ve taken the words out of my fingers.
    But I’ll repeat them : stunning, killer, with colours bursting in every direction. New York IS a feast for the eye of an artist whom we both love.
