Today I join Kool and the Gang in their exuberant 1981, chart-topping hit “Celebration”, because I just received my first Covid vaccination. Normality, here I come! Slowly and carefully, I admit, but the light at the end of the tunnel is no longer a train coming the other way. Yeah!!

Harlem Nights

Which brings me to this image, which I came across, after church on a beautiful Summer Sunday in 2007. Clearly there had been a party on Saturday night and, instead of the usual pairs of basketball shoes festooning the trees and traffic lights at intersections, someone had created a wonderful decoration of helium-filled balloons and attached them to the traffic lights for all to see. Sadly, I could not decipher the silver numbers and letters to know the exact occasion or the age of the birthday boy or girl. I am glad to share it with you on my own joyful day.

Je suis très heureux pour toi et grâce à l'image on image bien la joie pour toi que représente ta vaccination.
Quand à l'image elle même, elle est incroyablement nette et les couleurs superbes ! Encore une preuve que New-York City est une ville magique (et que tu es un photographe talentueux) !
