That’s right … Jesus Saves. This is the The Father’s Heart Ministry Center on East 11 Street in the East Village at night. The Jesus Saves sign is simply timeless.

Loving these late Spring / early Summer days with crisp walks to the office and warm, leisurely walks home (when I can get out of work at a reasonable hour).  I love St. Mark’s in-the-Bowery.  I think it’s a charming church, and it always catches my attention.  Even when the roses aren’t blooming like crazy little gremlins crawling up the side of everything.

I love my neighborhood. I love walking to work, walking home, walking just about everywhere. Yesterday I walked through the park on my way home, and the enclave of lush life in my rough-around-the-edges neighborhood took my breath away.
Tompkins Square Park

More than a few shots of the park were taken … you can imagine, I’m certain. It was just so inspiring! And after all the concrete, metal, and graffiti pictures I’d been taking … a photograph of life renewed seemed more than appropriate.

Ok … so maybe they aren’t identical twins, but they sure do look alike. Don’t they?

So maybe I’m seeing things. Guess I should tag the previous post “Seeing Things” a la Alien Invades Mop photograph.
