In a way I am seeing a different city traveling with my Leica as my only partner. It is of course the same city, new york is aging slowly, at least for tourists. When customs asked if I was traveling alone I should have said no. But then, with the US customs and allies on there toes, I would have been taken for spionage and a four letter diagnos. Wussy last nite was a treat, a little Pretenders in there mixed w folk and some alt rock music, very good indeed. Cute high girl dancing, can't beat that motif. Walked home from The Knitting factory and didn't get mugged, not even close.
