Abitino

Abitino's Pizzeria - A quick review

Greyhound Express, New York to Boston - A Review

Greyhound Express, New York to Boston - A Review

New York City - One Picture, Countless Stories

My eye saw the Apple logo first. Sorry, but that is what I saw and composed this picture. I was 9 ft above the ground on this sightseeing bus and I see this Apple logo looking back at me, fumbled for my camera and got what I wished. Only when I saw this photograph late(…)

The Empire State Building - America

The Empire State Building - America's Favorite Architecture

Whenever I look at this building, it tells me to rise, rise in admiration of the vision and the work which went into creation of this icon of the United States of America and America’s Favorite Architecture. It tells me to rise, because those  who do, stand out and they reach out to the stars(…)
