New York City, October 25, 2012

★ While everyone peered into the Internet for news of the prospect of meaningful weather, the day at hand did nothing to distinguish itself. Ersatz September temperatures met ersatz November dimness, while the trees of Nolita stayed green. Only the last half-hour of daylight achieved anything, filling the streets before sunset with an even, bluish illumination. A photographer unobtrusively sat on a bench, aiming a large lens across the street, taking advantage of the ambiance.
