I spent most of Sunday, June 14th walking around the World Science Festival Street Fair in Manhattan’s Washington Square Park, amid the only sun most of us have seen all month.

What a renal blast. Here are a couple of highlights:

My manager, Bill, got married in September. His lovely and talented bride, Victoria, agreed to fulfill yet one more of his lifelong dreams by honeymooning in Africa. They landed in Tanzania, and went on a number of cool safaris. I’m going to post a few of these images from time to time, ’cause they’re fun. Here’s the first:
