Inwood, Tenth Avenue Between 202nd and 203rd Streets

And now, back to the waking world. This was one of several arresting sights I saw walking up Tenth Avenue on my way home from my Labor Day walk.

Another was a small live chicken shop where they slaughter them to order and maybe also sell them live if you want to do your own slaughtering. One of the guys came out when he saw me with my camera and wagged his finger at me, no.

Hi, Mary. Thanks for the comment you left on my blog. Coming from you, it means a lot.

I really like this shot. The colours are so vibrant. I wonder what the girl is reacting to? Her expression is priceless.

Your blog hasn't been available for a couple of days. For some reason I kept getting the message that it couldn't be found. I'm glad you're still here.

Mary, grand to have you back in form! Wonderful colors and tiny shirts. Your live-chicken mention brings to mind a poultry slauterhouse in the mid-1960s on Ralph Avenue (one of the ugliest avenues in the world) in Brooklyn. I used to walk past it coming home from high school and always kind of shuddered and held nose as I passed. Hadn't thought of it in years. Thanks for the memory!

Oops! I knew "slauterhouse" looked odd! Please correct the spelling, if you can. Thanks! Wouldn't want to look slopopy. Oops!
