Up the stairs...

Up the stairs and...
A view of Times Square on a sunny day, looking South.

Quelques marches d'escalier...
Et une vue de Times Square par un apres midi ensoleillé.

I wish you all a nice and sunny Weekend inside and outside!

& you as well.
another lovely shot, & it seems you have captured spring in the air!

So, what do you think about your mayor's idea of making Times Square pedestrian only? Personally, I think I would miss the traffic very much. Love the TKT stair detail.

Nazzareno March 13, 2009 at 1:49 AM  

un détail qui offre de visuel beaucoup personnel et belle

Olivier March 13, 2009 at 3:11 AM  

bravo, tu as trouve la bonne manière pour les prendre en photo. A noël, j'ai tourné tout autour sans trouvé l'angle qui me plaisait ;o(.
J'aime beaucoup ta vision

Bon weekend !

Oooh, those stairs look slippery...but beautiful. I love this shot of Times Square, where my grandfather used to take me when I was little. I agree with Chuck and your mayor---GREAT if it would be pedestrians only.

Toujours aussi coloré ce quartier en tous cas on ne peut pas louper ces marches!Bonne fin de semaine.

C'est un très beau rouge, et comme le dit Olivier, ça parait bien glissant. Ce n'est dans doute qu'une impression.
Il faudrait que je m'habitue de nouveau à la vie en ville (grande ville) pour apprécier la foule. J'aurais sans doute du mal. C'est drôle comme les habitudes changent.

From somewhere around the 45th and 46th? Your photos really make us feel we would be there (except for hpy maybe?) Have a nice weekend (without visiting NYC maybe?)!

Magnifique marche et quelle vue !!

Daniel March 13, 2009 at 4:49 AM  

La montée des marches n'est donc pas réservée aux cannois... lol
Comme toujours de belles images...

Cezar and Léia March 13, 2009 at 7:14 AM  

Wonderful!I want to come back to NY !Pleaseeeeeee!I do love NY !
Have a nice weekend.
Léia :-)

Those steps look slick, be the reflection in them. It's amazing to me how every little inch of space has something much to see in your photo!
Have a great weekend :)

alice March 13, 2009 at 8:27 AM  

Quel beau rouge! On y voit même quelques reflets.
Et Times Square bien sûr, si symbolique de cette ville qui ne dort jamais...
Bon weekend (en voyant ton -5°, je ne te dis pas combien il fait ici ;-)

Marie March 13, 2009 at 9:43 AM  

Ah, Marie-Noyale, vos photos sont superbes et je me languis de New York. Chaque fois que je rentre, je déprime un peu et puis ça repart. Il fait tellement beau ici en ce moment !

Nancy March 13, 2009 at 9:52 AM  

I've never been. Great pictures Marie-Noyale.

Excellent post. I think pedesterian only is a good idea. It really worked in some of Japan's largest cities.

Wow! Great strong image of the red stairs.

Times Square sans automobiles would be wonderful. Fewer cars on the road is better for us all.

Barb March 13, 2009 at 11:32 AM  

Another great photo, I would have never thought to shoot a photo of the red stairs but you turned it into art,also love the photo of times square reminds me of when I was there a few years ago....Barb

Catherine March 13, 2009 at 12:47 PM  

Comme Daniel , j'ai tout de suite pensé à Cannes.
Sauf que chez toi on monte les marches pour mieux voir, et chez nous, on les descend pour se montrer.

Pas de souci pour trouver un taxi, dirait-on.

Bon week-end à toi Marie Noyale.

Fernando Pagán March 13, 2009 at 7:07 PM  

Very nice captured!

Lowell March 13, 2009 at 8:04 PM  

Two glorious shots. The stairs I had to look at twice, but the shot is magnificent. And the Times Square photo - well it couldn't be any better!

Jane Hards Photography March 13, 2009 at 9:08 PM  

I am just mesmerised my the red steps.

Tash March 14, 2009 at 2:08 AM  

The red steps with a sheen! better than nailpolish.
I do love your shot of Times Sq - brings back that feeling of wonder of seeing it for the 1st time - I felt like twirling around like "That Girl".
Hope you have some green grass soon. Our "wild" grass will start to dry up in May but the lawns will still be green.

magiceye March 14, 2009 at 4:39 AM  

both pictures are beautifully composed!

Bergson March 14, 2009 at 5:55 AM  

je préfère les marches il y a moins de pub ;-)

on te vois dans le reflet ;-)

Marguerite-marie March 14, 2009 at 2:29 PM  

moi j'aimes les deux. tu nous en mets plein le vue de couleurs.

GMG March 14, 2009 at 7:56 PM  

Hi M-N!
Times Square, always!!

Blogtrotter has Akbar’s capital city for you. Enjoy and have a great weekend!

namaki March 14, 2009 at 8:32 PM  

I like the zenitude of the red stairs before the affluence of information given by busy Times Square !! so many things to look at and I guess so much to hear !

Julie March 15, 2009 at 12:40 PM  

Your photos today and the pat few days have been just excellent. I am enjoying following your site! I look forward to more great visits. BTW, I am glad you are enjoying the Chihuly art on my website. I am going to continue to post more over time and intersperse the Chihuly eye candy with the desert, interesting cactus, resorts, special events and other photos.

Anonymous March 15, 2009 at 7:58 PM  

When I visit, i am NEVER disappointed by what you have seen and caught!

claude March 16, 2009 at 4:44 AM  

Ca fait du bien de la couleur et du soleil, Y a pas !

Juergen Kuehn March 16, 2009 at 10:41 AM  

Signal example of street life photography. I can hear the cabs hoot concert.

namaki March 16, 2009 at 7:31 PM  

Pour répondre à ta question sur la légende de mes photos, cela dépend. Parfois je trouve une citation qui me fait immédiatement penser à l'une de mes photos, ou bien je décide de chercher à partir d'une photo ... mais je laisse une belle part au hasard ... je me laisse porter par l'intuition ;-) !

Unknown March 17, 2009 at 2:32 PM  

Both shots are brilliant!!! Although I can't remember now from which building did you capture such a fantastic perspective... and the red stairs even make me more confused.

Il y a aussi..There is also...
