The carpet of Fall leaves is pretty...(above).
I came across an abandoned American flag (above and below), which I had to dig out of the matted, leafy carpet with a stick.
Under an overpass, below: a purple umbrella in its final resting place.
A final hunk of junk, below: a shock absorber, I think.
The cold did not dissuade the vendors and shoppers of the Union Square green market... Yet Spring has been a long time in coming this year -- if memory is correct, by this time in late March on previous years, bitter, subzero temperatures had succumbed to the ever-warming sun.
Though it was chilly enough for my fingers to hurt while taking these few shots, the far greater endurance was that of the vendors who were still there until after sunset that evening.
