I've had a couple of bad runs, too much time away traveling, issues with my body, but today's run changed all of that. Shortly after I started running, I ran by a wall that had a mural painted on it. There was a character on the wall that caught my attention. He had a big smile on his face and he was watering smiling plants. I couldn't help but catch their infectious smiles. It made me think of how neat it is to see so much of NYC. What a great opportunity I have. I wanted to introduce another NYC photo album inspired by this guy, called the shiny center. It is picture perfect NYC, the glitz and glammer.
