Notice the cobblestone streets here toward the end of 14th Street. Having once lived near historic old Alexandria, Virginia, when people in New York said cobblestone, I looked around for the stones, actual rounded stones which were once used for paving. Here, too; not just Alexandria. But they were replaced by these more easily traversed flat stones called setts, which were, in turn, replaced by asphalt, except in a few parts of old New York, like here.
On another subject altogether, everyone stop right now and back up your files. Yes, I had a little scare tonight, which turned out to be not a problem after all, but as soon as my computer started up, I backed up everything. How long had it been? Since May of this year. That's bad, all right, and I hereby resolve to back up at least every month.
Just so you know, I always back up my photographs as they're edited.
