Death

This photo was taken last year in New York. I was taking photos of all the signs in Manhattan when I saw this message rolling along this one building. I waited until I was able to get the whole message in one shot.

As I looked around, I noticed no one else was really paying attention to the news. Everyone was so preoccupied with their own lives that it didn’t seem like a lot of people were interested. It was really sad.

Have a great day and don’t forget to support your troops no matter where you live!

This photo was taken in New York when I visited last year. New York has architecturally significant buildings in a wide range of styles spanning distinct historical and cultural periods.

New York has two main concentrations of high-rise buildings: Midtown Manhattan and Lower Manhattan, each with its own uniquely recognizable skyline. Midtown Manhattan, the largest central business district in the world, is home to such notable buildings as the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, Citigroup Center and Rockefeller Center. Lower Manhattan comprises the third largest central business district in the United States (after Midtown and Chicago’s Loop). Lower Manhattan was characterized by the omnipresence of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center from its completion in 1973 until its destruction in the September 11 attacks, 2001.

Happy Chinese New Year!

Happy Chinese New Year! It’s the Year of the Dragon and to commemorate the year I have created a Dragon Themed Kokeshi Doll!

(Please forgive me if I got the Script wrong…I drew it to the best of my ability! The script says “Dragon”).

For everyone not aware, the Year of the Dragon is very important within the Chinese culture. The Dragon is one of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac. It is the only animal that is mythical as well.

For some great information about The Year of the Dragon, you should check out this website: http://www.usbridalguide.com/special/chinesehoroscopes/Dragon.htm!

If you celebrate, have a wonderful New Year celebration! =D
