Tales from the train

Conversation between myself and a homeless man on the uptown E train subway platform:

Man: Excuse me, miss?
Me: Yes?
Man: (Holding up a can of Coke) Would you like to buy this refreshing beverage for only $1?
Me: No, thanks.
Man: (Looking confused) Are you sure? It's only $1 and that's a real bargain.
Me: No, thanks.
Man: (Opens the can, takes a sip, and holds it up again) How about $0.75?

Damn you, Mother Nature

Sorry for my absence, internets, but I've been kind of busy and, truth be told, not very inspired. Since summer seems to have unexpectedly disappeared, I'm posting some pictures I took with my family yesterday at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. Despite the rain and general dreariness, I was able to capture some nice shots which helped brighten my mood and made me look forward to autumn. New posts are coming soon, I promise. Enjoy.
