Manhattan with the Kirkwoods

Last Monday I spent the day in Manhattan with my mom and the Kirkwoods.

We took a taxi from Chelsea up to Midtown. Carol kindly hailed the cab while I snapped away . . .

After lunch we headed a few blocks downtown to the Museum of Modern Art (aka MOMA). I love this museum not only for the art but because they allow you to photograph the art as long as you don't use flash . . .

And I saw this guy standing in front of a Botero sculpture and it reminded me of an old Jamiroquai album cover . . .
