People always make Juliet out to be dumb in Romeo and Juliet, but I think she at least had some sense where Romeo didn't have much of any Romeo: I was thinking about this chick earlier who I said I was in love with but now I love that girl over there that is very likely to either belong to my family's enemy or be close with my family's enemy as it is their party I am crashing
Juliet: I do not like being so young and forced into a relationship with an older man, but oh there's a cute guy more my age over there. And since he's here he must have been invited and is there for a reasonable love match for myself
Romeo: We should kiss right now at this party
Juliet: No that is a super dumb idea
Romeo: *kisses her anyway*
Juliet: That was dumb of you
Romeo: We should get married right now
Juliet: We don't know each other. Shouldn't we wait until at least a little time has passed?
Romeo: Like tomorrow?
Juliet: Sure, fine.
Juliet: We're married now, so we have to try and make things better between our families.
Romeo: It seems I have killed your cousin and am now exiled.
Juliet: Ok so since Romeo fucked up I'm gonna fix this shit by taking a harmless sleeping liquid. He'll come and get me and we can go away together.
Romeo: *immediately kills himself*
Juliet: For fucks sake.
Everyone pretty much knows that I am super passionate when it comes to experiencing New York City in the snow. The more gusty and snowy the storm, the more of a chance that I will be out in it traipsing around New York City with my camera. Janus delivered more of a snowy punch than the last snowstorm we had a few weeks back. By the time night pulled its cover of darkness over the city, there was a substantial amount of snow on the ground.
As usual, I bundled myself and my Sony A99 up and instead of just walking uptown as I have done for the last few snowstorms, I decided to take the train up to a part of uptown I have never photographed in the snow with the aim of walking back home to the Lower East Side. I wanted to experience Sutton Place and the east side of upper Manhattan at its most beautiful in the winter. I would have liked to have stayed out a bit longer but the wind chills were dipping below zero.
