nyc II: people/places/things...

in what's become a semi-annual ritual, this past weekend i spent 4 days in the big apple to visit friends and see some sights. the highlights... via two different, tangram-esque color schemes:

a→ ink drawing titled something along the lines of "there's no reason to fear" [moma]
b→ the world's most famous homo haunt [stonewall inn]
c→ dapper mr. leroy and his tongue [los dos molinos]
d→ me and ky outside the legend [stonewall inn]
e→ yours truly getting goofy with the half-chinee cindybro [barrage]
f→ pinoy santi from way back when [b bar+grill]
g→ picasso's "les demoiselles d'avignon" [moma]
h→ john w's trademark pose [barrage]
i→ my awfully large straight whiskey (thanks, john) [barrage]

j→ the view approaching washington square park (and my hotel) on a glorious winter day [washington square hotel]
k→ the ever-skeptical (and green) dave serving up woodside thai [sri pra phai]
l→ museum-worthy industrial design [moma]
m→ sampling some of nyc's great architecture [greenwich village]
n→ oh the stories mrs. zahid should write [therapy]
o→ just because it was that large, the whiskey glass (and the troubles it tried to hide), encore [barrage]
p→ mr. hoon, the affable lad [kunjip]
q→ ms. ky, light wine, and an 8-cheese plate in the village = a perfect thursday afternoon ['ino restaurant]
r→ new backlit midtown signs proclaiming nyc's very own k-town. [koreatown]
s→ mr. nice day with mr. chas "wonderful energy" yesman [los dos molinos]

nah, of course she ain't. most of my friends are either uninterested or unaware. i try not to take it personally. plus, it makes it easier to write and post photos about them. notice the lack of gorillakymm uptheshirt pics? case in point. xo
