Weekly Photo Challenge: A Face in the Crowd…

Prompt : Create an image that represents being “a face in the crowd.”


This isn’t a face in the crowd, it is however, a crowd of faces.

I took this picture of the Phantom of the Opera poster outside the theatre in New York City in January 2016.  It shows faces of performers through its then 28th year on Broadway.  It celebrated its 30th anniversary in January of this year and in March I’ll be seeing it for the 3rd time.

Phantom Of The Opera …

Broadway’s longest running musical opened in 1988 and is still going strong.

I’ve seen it 3 times and would see it again and again.

This poster is on the front of the theatre and if you look closely can see it’s made up of all tiny photos.


Closer look …


Have you seen Phantom ?

NYC Matinee Day …

My daughter Deb, our friend Dawn and I went to NYC last Saturday to see…tah dah… the funniest, most hysterical musical comedy I think I’ve ever seen… and despite the title… it was not rotten 🙂  Come along and join us on our matinee day in the city.


After getting coffee we headed to Times Square…


You can always count on seeing a lot of characters roaming Times Sq, for example take a look at the characters in the last picture, crazy looking bunch 🙂

You might even see a proposal taking place, although I wonder if the one we saw was a real one or staged since there was a camera crew there !  At any rate it picture worthy.


 Next up was lunch.. Junior’s Restaurant & Bar was our choice and it was a good one… we all chose sandwiches which were huge and delicious, the side dishes of pickles and also beets were great…but the icing on the cake, or in this case the blueberries on the cheesecake was oh so good… one piece shared 3 ways was perfect.pizap.com14531643690312

and now the main event…  I present …’Something Rotten’..



Inside before the magic, and the laughter began…
