New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham took some pictures last week during the August like weather in April. His commentary is pretty entertaining. I picture him riding around on his little bike stopping to get these pictures, and it makes me smile.
Now, what was it you wanted? Rocks? Sugar on the rim?
