Postcards from NY?

Well you will see from the following photos that Fiona and I have escaped the hot weather and rain of Maleny to holiday and celebrate my birthday in New York. We have had a couple excellent blue sky days, then a cloudy-drizzly day and today a bit rainy. So we have walked and done as much outside stuff as we can just in case the rain and/or snow hits and we can then head indoors to the galleries.

So just a few images (postcards) from NY....... all taken on iPhone.

And of course some of these photos were chosen because they offered better opportunities for alteration as can be seen below.
