Word and Image


Same parade, different time, there I stood waiting. On the sidewalk behind me along comes this would be parade marcher. “Borat!!” Ok, I’ve been living under a rock. I did not know the character. Sacha Baron Cohen, aka, Borat, is fairly well known. And now I know him too. But at that moment when I snapped this image, I thought that this man was just another demented New Yorker. Placate, don’t look them straight in the eye, and above all, keep something between you.

  2. I’d say this guy is brave. What was the temperature that night?

    • Temperature on Halloween is always an issue. Even on a typical fall day, the temp drops when the sun goes down. A Canadian group in top hat and tux came with long underwear one year. But year after year there are near naked, half naked, and severely under-dressed folks. And some years it has been cold! But the costumes are not so pretty covered in warm weather gear. So, the show goes no. They look so cold until the parade begins. Then it’s a long walk up the avenue. Who knows?
