89/365: Fiorello Laguardia is crrrrushing your roof
Alright, so maybe not the homage to Kids in the Hall that I intended, but that's what it reminded me of anyway.

It was a toss-up between the best picture, and the most representative picture.
We made a pilgrimage out to Jamaica Bay National Wildlife Refuge today. It's hard to believe that Jamaica Bay is in Queens, and that when you look just right, you can see Manhattan off in the distance. It's the very start of the spring migration, and although we didn't see any of the warblers or wading birds that are usually around in the spring, there was a huge flock of snow geese and some other cool birds like a green winged teal and this bird that we can't identify (so I put it in the "Bird Identification Help Guide" on Flickr).

83/365: About to burst
We went to drop the compost off in Union Square today and came upon quite a crowd. I'm still not entirely sure what it was for, except on one side there were hula hoopers and on the other some company was giving away a bubble machine. Even more strange is that there were so many photographers with dSLRs that I wondered if there was some flash mob photography event that I hadn't been invited to join.
More photos at Flickr.
82/365: If it's a party, there must be olives
And gummy bears (but I thought I'd give another food a chance on the blog).

I had great fun in the Meatpacking District this afternoon. See more here (the last three are from midtown in the morning).

79/365: Long live the hippies
On my walk to work, I was feeling uninspired about having to take a photo today. Then I noticed a sign for an anti-war rally at noon. You can't beat these rallies for photo ops. The cigarette, the sunglasses, the beret, the pins, the washboard—the New York modern hippie.
Click for more photos of the rally.

78/365: File Under: Street Art I Don't Really Get
UPDATE: This photo was featured on Gothamist recently in a post that really puts this photo into a whole new light!

76/365: Irish Eyes Are Smilin'
One reason I really love this project is because it's making me a better New Yorker. I feel the need to document things that I might have actively avoided before. Today we went up to the St. Patrick's Day parade on our way to see the Barcelona exhibit at the Met. What wonderful photographic opportunities, especially because people were expecting to be photographed (like this nice woman who posed for me).
See the whole set of photos from today at Flickr. Here was another particular favorite.

75/365: Oatmeal Cranberry Almond Muffins
We substituted almonds for walnuts and applesauce for butter, but they're still pretty tasty!

73/365: The hand as subject
When I was taking this, I didn't even realize what she was doing. She appears to be taking a picture of her own hand. How odd.
Here are some other people who were in the park today.

68/365: I'm revolutionary
Maybe this isn't the most birthday-oriented picture ever, but we walked into the Strand bookstore after dinner and I saw this book on the review copies shelves. It made me happy to think that I'm revolutionary in some way.
I did take a picture of the pot de creme that we had for dessert at Union Square Cafe, but it just didn't come out well. Then I had the brilliant idea of taking a picture of a "32", like a building number or something, but even though we were walking down a street that bordered buildings with numbers in that range, we never managed to see a "32".
I also took some pictures earlier in the day that are sort of fun—you can see them here.

Let me just say straight off that it would have been way too much trouble to set these out on a sidewalk in New York, wait for it to snow, and hope that nothing happened to them before I could take a picture, so no, I didn't set this up. No, this is an example of divine providence, despite the fact that I don't envy the hypothermic gummy bears (nor was I particularly excited about my hypothermic fingers as I was trying to get an adequate shot.)

62/365: Empire Fulton Ferry Park
It's the first day of spring! Not really, but Super G and I went out to Prospect Park in Brooklyn today—the inaugural ride on his new bike. This picture of Empire Fulton Ferry Park, my favorite park in all of NYC, was taken from the Brooklyn Bridge. We didn't go down there today, but I've been wanting to go ever since I got the new camera. I really think that park affords the most spectacular views of Manhattan (and the Brooklyn Bridge, of course!)
