Photos from Around the Block (The Walking Returns)

I went to my doctor’s office. Long story short,  he told me, I had to get out more. (no duh, professor. Med school wasn’t wasted on you). He’s good people.

So I walked home. I figured, I’m out – I’ll stay out. I took some pictures along the way. It was a beautiful day. Here are the ones… that are not the worst… ones.

To the pics…

My doctor had this in his waiting room... very cool.

I’m just going to leave this here. (but tell me, why is the O on its side? Is it dead? What are you really trying to say, West Harlem Group?)  … sinister.

Hot day... closed pool.

Congressman Rangel, why are the pools closed? Mr. Rangel, answer the question.

And that’s all I got.

Stay healthy America.

  1. Dude I think I totally saw that airplane today on my way home. It flew over the Bronx. Love this photo essay, it was one of my favorites, I don’t know why. I guess It just wasn’t very typical.
