Constantinople -- our favorite photo in some time invoking the love westerners hold for our mystic past in the near east. There is an amazing wealth found in the mystic Christian literature of the Philokalia unlike most anything found in the west that focuses on the practical aspects on being a faithfilled follower in the world teaching how not to be of the world.
New York City - East Village in the Snow (Full photo-set here :http://nythroughthelens.com/post/74150779823/new-york-city-snowstorm-janus-view-these - ) It occurred to me that I only posted one photo from the most recent storm here to Google Plus. This is one of my favorite streets in the East Village especially during a heavy snowstorm. It transforms into a warm cocoon of swirling snow and lights.
