“Look at the open second-floor window between shutters in this photograph, and you will see two little boys. President Theodore Roosevelt’s widow, Edith, identified one of them as her husband at the age of 6, looking down from his grandfather’s Union Square mansion onto the coffin of the assassinated Abraham Lincoln on Broadway in New York in April 1865.”

I like traveling, but I’m always happy to get back to New York City.

I’m just experimenting with the fact that Instagram pics are now embeddable on WordPress. Perhaps they have always been embeddable in this fashion, but the capability is new to me.

Visiting The Timbers Army, May 2012

I took this picture at a Portland Timbers soccer game in Portland, Oregon. The Timbers defeated the Chicago Fire by a score of 2-1.

This one I took at The Lenox Lounge in Harlem, sometime in 2012, which was before it closed.
