Our own Brooklyn bred half-assed Houdini, David Blaine, is doing a 36 hour stand in on a column in Bryant Park.
I’ve got the exposure wrong, but Canon’s stitch assist mode is working nicely.
He’s got a cathether for peeing, some water and a cell phone. He is going to jump onto some cardboard boxes in about an hour. Notice the camera array on the boottom — that’s for Matrix-style effect. All you need for that is just a bunch of 35mm cameras firing at the same moment, which gives you a 180 degree view of a frozen in time object.
Asks Straight Dope
Eeewww, here is one.
And I almost missed my train taking the picture.
Anyone wants to hazard a guess about what this is?
The cool thing about digital cameras is that you can waste as much “film” as you want shooting blindly.
Police decals are made out of some reflecting plastic, so they show up weirdly in the light of a flash (which of course I did not mean to use, but forgot to turn off).
I went to buy myself something to eat, and lo a behold: Christie’s is having a collectors’ car exhibition at Rockefeller Center.
I wonder, in the time of those cars, would the pedestrians rather be disemboweled by this
Can you guess what this is?
Oh, here is a clue:

The Kodak billboard’s screen that shows eye animations made a funny face. No wonder, that “Stitch” billboard is creeping me out too. I did not even notice that Fleet bank’s billboard was missing a crucial letter :)
You’ll tell me this is just a road crew laying asphalt. Riiiight. That’s what they want you to believe.
I go through Times Square almost every day on my way to work and back home. Yesterday I was working until midnight, so on my way back I took some pictures with my brand new digital camera. The train + train + bus ride that usually takes 1.5 hours took me 3 hours this time because of subway repairs. I should really move to Manhattan.
I know, I know, it’s a cliché. Still.. I pass this by every day.
Scientists are having a major breakthrough with death rays in a lab on top of Ernst & Young building.
I really hate the crudely photoshopped ad on top. They are reusing the “flashing” dude in subway ads by mirror flipping him. The ad is for Revlon, I think.
I could not figure how to crop this picture, but this seems to work.
