I don't know what happened but I just realised that this photo from our Oct 2005 trip to New York City was never posted here. This is one of my favourite photos, period!

I don't know how to describe the allure, but I love Bunnies. I suppose it's the mirrored surfaces that reflect its surroundings, the fantastic signage, and the muted rainbow. I took 4 photos at this corner which is really unlike me. I generally do one shot and move on. Two images were from different angles depicting different parts of the store, and one was similar to this but without people. It's hard to see in such a small image but the woman is holding a cigarette and is walking with such a sense of mundane and disinterested purpose...

We walked by Bunnies last week and it is gone, replaced by a mediocre, contemporary pharmacy. And maybe that's a service that people need in the neighbourhood but the corner just didn't feel the same without Bunnies to brighten it up with its muted rainbow magic.
