The image of the World Trade Center is Kongo’s take on this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. I like the way the sky reflects on the glass of this monumental building. See more monuments at the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.
So last weekend Kongo checked out the area around Wall street in lower Manhattan. It had been a few years and Kongo wanted to see if anything changed. It hadn’t. It was pretty quiet and all the “Occupy” activists are long gone. It was just the monkey and a flock of other tourists taking pictures. Above Alexander Hamilton poses in front of the Federal Building on Wall Street.
This isn’t exactly Wall Street. But it is a turkey. A wild turkey that was wandering about in Battery Park near where the tourists get on the boats to the Statue of Liberty. No stock tips from this guy. He just wandered around and pecked at bits of popcorn left over from some passing muncher.
