As you know, I was in New York City for a couple of days last week, which I used mostly as a photography excursion. I originally planned to do some street photography, but ended up not doing very much. It’s hard! A lot of people who do it end up with pictures they think are a lot better than they really are, and I decided pretty quickly that I just don’t have the eye for it. Maybe someday I’ll spend more time with it and learn how to do it well.

But I got a bunch of other nice pictures that will enter the daily queue, including lots of cute animals at the Prospect Park zoo. My stock of animal photos was running low, so this was a good way to spend a couple of hours.

But the first New York picture for you is this young couple in front of the famous fountain at Lincoln Center. Enjoy.

LESS DREADING, MORE DOING

This is the rubber-meets-road moment: the early days in our first fundraising drive since we took a big swing and merged with CIR to bring fearless investigative reporting to the internet, radio, video, and everywhere else that people need an antidote to lies and propaganda.

Donations have started slow, and we hope that explaining, level-headedly, why your support really is everything for our reporting will make a difference. Learn more in “Less Dreading, More Doing,” or in this 2:28 video about our merger (that literally just won an award), and please pitch in if you can right now.
