Just ahead is one of several groups practicing Tai Chi in the square on this beautiful wintry morning. A daily occurrence here.

Good morning from Florida, Stephen. Things are on schedule, amazingly enough!

What time of day did you shoot this. It's almost serene, and we all know CT is anything but serene :) Nice image.

I had one of those love of light days in DC Saturday. One photo from that is up today.

@Formerly Known as MontereyJohn: Hi, John - this was shot about 8 AM - Chinatown is pretty quiet until the shops begin to open their doors around 10 or so...

What a wild set of buildings back there . . . I thought for a moment you were talking about a group of architects practicing !
