Autumn Colors in New England

 These picture were taken just before the Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast.

To me their is no more beautiful place to be in the fall than New England. 

            The colors are so vivid from the bright blue sky to the reds and yellows of the leaves.

                             The smell of sweet maple syrup radiates from the leaves heated in the sun.

There's an excitement in the air as it swirls the leaves around your feet letting you know that winter is on it's way.

A Walk in New York's Garment district

I used to design clothes in New York City. It was a great, fun and rewarding career. I often like to go back and wander the streets. The industry has slowly been dying in the United States; one more industry that has been sent overseas. The streets are much quieter now; No longer is the rush of supplies being loaded and unloaded and racks of clothing being pushed through them and through-out the streets. Though quieter, it is still an interesting part of New York with its many fabric and trim stores.

He seems worried, will he lose his job?
