A WORLD APART
As luck would have it things had taken longer than I thought today and I was facing rush hour traffic as I limped down Lexington Avenue. I wasn't happy. From the driver's seat I had plenty of time to window shop....my car wasn't moving and I was pretty frustrated. But comic relief arrived in the nick of time when I spotted these two pedestrians passing the very fashionable mannequins in Bloomie's windows. They were in their own worlds, completely oblivious to the window displays, much less fashion. In a way their isolation made them appear to be mannequin-like. I love the contrasts in this photo and the odd sort of balance it creates. It says a lot about life and the very separate, yet similar lives we all lead.
