{this moment} see beautiful

these are some random sites i saw while in new york visiting daughter #2. even though the first two are memorials, they are beautiful reminders of the beautiful lives that were taken too soon.

"imagine" the memorial to john lennon:
this was much larger than i expected it to be. i wish i could have gotten a full picture but there were too many tourists standing around, trying to get a picture.

one of the memorial pools:
wow. just, wow.

the freedom tower:
new york rebuilds and goes on.

"life underground":
there are lots of funny little statues scattered throughout the 14th street subway station. this sewer alligator was my favorite.

washington square arch:
modeled after the arc de triomphe in paris.

and most importantly, bailey:
even when she gets too close to the camera.

  3. Oh cool, That would be so fun to see all that.

  4. That's really beautiful and the "sewer-gator" is a super cool thingy!

  5. My paws are voting for Bailey and for the Freedom Tower. We had no idea it was so far along already.

  6. I love the sewer alligator best too - apart from Bailey, of course.

  9. Judy & Bailey....
    Is the John Lennon memorial made of mosaic? Just wondering. ;)
    That memorial pool. Wow, indeed. ;)
    That's the Freedom Tower.... Whoa. ;)

    1. hi raelyn,
      yes, the john lennon memorial is a mosaic. imagine the work that was put into that? surely a labor of love.

  10. Well all those definitely leave us seeing beautiful. That's so much for seeing beautiful with us!

  11. where space and crowds are an issue a wider angle lens is a good solution.A little pocketable point and shoot like the Canon A3300 works well and is a reasonably priced little cam to record the moments of your and Bailey's adventures
