In my daily accumulation of photographs, there are many that never fit neatly into the  
many categories I've set up. These usually find their way into the "quirkball" drawer, .

 Everyone has something to say. From aphorisms, advice, love, poetry, platitudes, politics or pithy pronouncements, they all seem to find space on urban walls, I've been documenting them for a long time and this small batch is from the past year.

We had heard about the "Festival of Colors" for years, and on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon we headed out to Richmond Hill in Queens to find out more.
     The festival and parade is called the "Phagwah Holi" and it is a celebration of Spring, culture and colors with roots in Hindu mythology. Families and friends gather and the festive atmosphere is contagious with food, laughter, dancing and splashes of color everywhere.

A casual greeting may include a smear of color...

I took a walk around the Jefferson Island Spoonbill Reserve and
thought I saw a car tire... until it moved, and a ten foot gator
slipped into the water.

        The unlikely combination of Easter and April Fools seemed to enliven the playful     costume collaborations of this years Easter event.
