Random thoughts and observations, including photographs, in the tradition of a flaneur*: a stroller, a loiterer, a dawdler on street corners, a hanger-about who rambles through a city without any apparent purpose but is highly attuned to the history of the place and is in a constant covert search of adventure, esthetic or the exotic and erotic.

S. and I returned from the Sunday "French Market" at Nettlehorst elementary school on Broadway. We purchased an apple and lemon tartlets from the order of nuns from the bakery of the Fraternite NotreDame* and these fluers from another vendor.
When we returned home I put them in a very nice heavy glass vase and decided to photograph them in my primitive umbrella lighting setup against a black velvet background I had built in the living room I am using to photograph stuff I will be listing on ebay next month.
The star gazer lillies have a strong aroma.
