|This photo was taken from the High Line (a public park built on a rail line elevated above the streets). I love the buildings in my picture, I have a weakness for buildings that are a bit out of the ordinary. The white one on the left has been designed by Frank Gehry and the blue building in the middle of the photo has been designed by Jean Nouvel|

|I saw a picture of this mural on Flickr, and I thought is was a great mural. So I asked the photographer where he had found this one: West 21st Street between 8 and 9 Avenue in NYC. Last week I went over there to see for myself. This mural is ENORMOUS! I have never seen anything like this before. And it was very hard to get a good picture of it, especially with the fence in front of it, which is actually a pity, because his feet are also very funny (see below).|
This is my contribution to Monday Mural, for more murals you can go to Oakland Daily Photo.
A little bit more information about this mural can be found here.

|I live so close to the Hudson River, I could easily go there often to see the sunset, but somehow I hardly ever do that. |
As you can see, the sunset can be stunning!

|This afternoon I got really bored at home. I decided to go out and walk to Riverside Park and see if there was some|
sort of sunset. And there was. All afternoon it had been quite cloudy but suddenly the sun came out to say hello.

|Help me! at the corner of Broadway & Liberty Street in NYC.|
Having your picture taken in this pose, I think, is so not original. But while I was walking outside yesterday I saw this guy posing for his friends. It made me laugh, suprised to see people still do this, haha. In a split second I decided to take this photo, I like it. You can read more about The 'Red Cube' from Isamu Noguchi here.

|This mural can be found inside the JCC Manhattan and is made by street artist Gabriel Specter.|
This is only one of the six murals Specter made for the JCC. They are all very colorful, I personally like them a lot. Unfortunately this is only a temporary exhibit. After March 1 the walls will be painted over and there well be another exhibition.
This is what the JCC has on their website about the murals and the artist:
The Laurie M. Tisch Gallery invited street artist Gabriel Specter to create a portrait of The JCC in Manhattan. In order to do this, Gabriel spent countless hours within our 14 floors, going to programs, watching, listening and talking with staff and members of all ages. From the stories Gabriel heard and the people he met and photographed, a portrait of our community came into focus.

Today I am linking up with whiskey.tango.foxtrot for the 1st week of the 'February - Photo a day challenge'. The list with prompts she provided seemed like fun and I thought let's give it a try and see if I can come up with a daily photo (I already missed day 4...). So here are my interpretations for this week:
1. February - Photo a day challenge, 2. self-portrait, 3. The color pink, 4. Something that made me laugh
