I was itching to get out and photograph today, despite the fact that it was gloomy. After being cooped up inside because of very cold temperatures over the last week, I managed to venture out for a couple hours. The streets were devoid of people, so I poked around the buildings in Midtown. Although I enjoyed my walk and took a few pictures, photographically speaking I did not find anything terribly exciting. I was surprised, however, when this image appeared on my monitor. At the time I took this shot I was focused on the pretty curtains in the windows. I had not realized that a squirrel had leapt for the camera.
