Never mind the rat...what about that guy's bright red pants! :)

Yeah, what about Christine's question? You gotta admire the guy for walking toward a giant yellow rat while wearing bright red pants. It takes a certain ...no, wait, he isn't even looking at the rat. He's looking at the ground. Maybe he's actually embarrassed after all. Maybe his wife washed his white pants with his red sweatshirt. Hmm, no, then they'd be pink.
Well, I've done that one to death. Congratulations on "capturing" the giant yellow rat, as they say.

I'd like to know what the giant rat was doing there, If there was a restaurant nearby I would be cautious. Wonderful shot.

I'm seeing drops and a huge Yellow in this photo.

Thanks for the visit.

Kitty said...

ha, I love it.
There is another rat in Midtown-ish but it's much less fashionable, in a drab gray.

Ah New Yorkers, they will do anything for attention!

And nobody seems particularly interested in the big yellow rat, or the bright red pants guy.

That's America!

You know, I am sure, the reason for the rat is to point out that some shop or business is under attack by a UNION .. its cheaper to rent and place that inflatable guy than to have people picket .. seriously.

I've seen those big rats before, but never a yellow one. He's funny and bizarre looking at the same time! Love to see the people walking too.

Alexa said...

These are the only NYC rats I actually like! Nice capture, Lily.

ahhhhhh!!!!!!

you have me running from one end of Long Island to the other. I must pray to Bastet, the Cat Goddess of
Egypt.

Seriously, I hate mice and rats.

After seeing your snap I felt very nostalgic, as I left NYC last year and moved to London. Though I enjoy my stay in London, but I miss NY a lot....

Apart from that giant rat I find many things in yellow.

I am surprised he was on the street and not the sidewalk. He's kinda cute for a big rat :D
