Thoughts on music and technology, and sometimes food

I’m in the process of adding new banner images to the blog, and I was totally prepared to discard the placeholder images that were downloaded with the theme as one normally would do with any sort of placeholder (the banner images rotate at random, and the idea is to replace them with your own stuff.) However, I realized upon closer examination that both images, serendipitously enough, were of locations that had real personal significance.  So, when the seemingly generic New York photos come up in the rotation, take a closer look.  The street scene is 59th Street at 5th Ave., and the unremarkable modern building that occupies the center of the background of the shot is 785 Fifth Ave., where I went up to the 19th floor to the studio in Denise Rich’s penthouse for work every day for a few years.   In the wide shot of Central Park, the same building can be seen in the lower right hand quadrant of the photo, not far from where the park ends at 59th St.  I decided to leave them in the mix.
