TITS and ASS……and ART

TITS and ASS.…….. run rampant in New York.  On the streets……in the shops………on the walls of the Art Museums…………not to mention the thrift Shops.  Some of it I buy for my collection……..and a lot of it I don’t…….but I do have fun photographing it.

The Modgliani is my favorite.

Thousands of trees light up New York at Christmas.  I look forward to them all every year.  When I lived in Detroit I decorated trees like this for J.L.Hudson’s.
