 Tonight is the first of eight nights of Hanukkah. It isn’t really an important holiday on the Jewish calendar but since it falls so close to Christmas it has become more about merchandise (and of course food). We celebrate just about everything here at Casa Lobo. Here are some fun photos from the past and present. A shout out to my very cooperative pets over the years – Madison, Benny, One-eyed Jack, Roberta, Audrey Pete and of course, Mr. Pepe. Let’s all add a ‘J’ to that Oy!

To celebrate World Photography Day my pal Robyn and I attended a special sunrise opportunity at SUMMIT One Vanderbilt. This was our third visit to this amazing observation deck. Getting there by 5AM was challenging but apparently hundreds of other photographers decided to do the same thing. I have never seen so much camera gear and accessories. It was a fun experience but we probably do not need to repeat it. Like City views? Check out our first visit in November of 2021 here. Still like views? Check out our second visit here.

Pride and Prejudice June 26, 2022

It has been a long tough week for most of us. It is incomprehensible to lose a Constitutional right. The Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides a fundamental “right to privacy” that protects a pregnant woman’s liberty to choose whether to have an abortion. That all changed on Friday with the outrageous SCOTUS decision. Thought I would try to put a smile or two on faces out there by sharing some photos of my little collection of critters as they celebrate Pride without prejudice.

Sunrise from the Empire State Building April 11, 2021

 Now that we are all venturing out as we get vaccinated it is time to make up for the lost COVID year. Fresh from my adventure to the Edge a few weeks ago we decided to go to the 86th floor and watch the sun rise from atop the Empire State Building. it is amazing that this iconic building was completed in just 13 months. I hadn’t been to the ESB since I was a kid and my buddy, Amy had never been – so off we went. I was not expecting the most fabulous sunrise (as long as we did not have fog I would be happy). The city is quiet on a Saturday morning and it was great watching the hints of light and color on the horizon. If was a wonderful experience (if you don’t count that fact that I forgot to put the battery in my SLR camera). All of today’s photos were taken with my iPhone. If you can get up early you might consider trying this unique, fun adventure. Before departing the venue you should visit the second floor which is filled with history, interactive exhibits and of course – King Kong.

If you missed last night’s sensational light show projected on the Empire State Building here are just a few images that I was able to capture. Illuminating article from the NY Times hereESPROJECTYes, the image above is a bit of whimsy added to the light show.  It is that famous gorilla climbing up the building.
