A Collection of Photos that Didn't Fit Elsewhere

A few steps outside Grand Central Station in Manhattan.

From a recent visit to the new wing of the New Britain Museum of American Art.

The east side of Providence has some great old houses.

The Somerset on Boston's Commonwealth Avenue has been converted from hotel to condos.
Great details in the arch.

I liked his helmet.

A fine old house in Georgetown, Massachusetts.

The artist was probably thinking about the fight against breast cancer.

Teen volunteers at a church were unloading pumpkins from trucks, 
handing them down the line and placing them out for sale. 
Fall is here and Halloween can't be far behind.
