Music for a cause

This trio had a sign saying "Justice not Torture" as they played some beautiful, mournful melodies in a subway station in New York. They were getting the attention of commuters in order to collect signatures to protest against the torture meted out to prisoners in Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib, Afghanistan and other secret detention facilities around the world.
Their handout read, "Holding anyone without charge....is a violation of the US constitution and international law."
For more information go to this site (Center for Constitutional Rights) and click on Guantanamo Action Center.

Fall leaves

Niagara falls

This is a panaromic view of the falls. I swivelled the camera to take a series of shots and then stitched them using a software program. By the time I was through with the series, the lighting had changed - you will see that when you observe closely.

The Musicians of New York

Part of my fascination with New York is the presence of talented musicians in subway stations.
