Scavenger Hunt Sunday: iPhone addition

Super relieved that Irene hasn't knocked out my power so I can post this week! SO without furher hurricane my hunt this week:
Okay, I hate to be cheesy here. I tried to find some really cheesy NY souvenirs, to no avail. So instead hunks of gruyere, sitting on a wheel of gruyere.

Nighttime Photography:
What else do you do the night a hurricane blows into town? You go out in the pouring and driving rain for ice cream of course! It was pouring, but people were out and about!

I love being able to shop for kiddie clothes now that I have Noam to shop for! Apparently rock and roll is in this year for the toddler scene!

Old and New:
The plant on the right, in the new larger pot is my old/original snake plant. I bought it 3 years ago when it fit into a tea cup sized pot.  Not it's new shoots are in the old/original pot that I watched it grow and flourish in!

It's often blinding to drive past the Ritz Towers when the sun is setting, but this time I braved the spots on my eyes to capture this picture. Giant condos of giant mirrors? You decide!

I love the old and new :) I love old and new plants and always get a thrill of putting them all together. The cheese photo made me crave cheese!

Those plants are almost indestructible. My mom had the same plant for almost 35 years until it got so big she gave it to my SIL. She still has it today! Great shots this week!

That last image is stunning. Glad you braved it out. I too would definitely go out for ice cream, storm or no storm. May have to do that tonight.

Oh no you didn't... just post a picture of gruyere cheese. Because I have t he most amazing recipe that I totally have a hankering for right now... and it's kind of sort of your fault, ha ha!

And that stuff is NOT CHEAP!

Love the towers shot!

That sun shot is beautiful. Since you live in New York, I'm guessing Irene is making you yearn for that sun again. Stay safe!

Wonderful set, Tamar! I love the sun photo.... and that shot of the Gruyere totally makes me want to get out and get some for myself today. Gruyere is my favorite cheese!

Great set and interpretations, love the light in your sun shot, lovely colours, looks like a driving hazard though.
