I was looking all over the base of the Mother and Child statue for a signature or title but couldn't find anything besides a sea of sea-creatures -- so by supposition I'm going to say that Mother and Child are waiting for their sea-faring man to return (((with a sack full of fish for dinner))).

Prices aren't low, but I suppose if I worked in the Financial District I would make the occasional lunch-time dash over to the Ferry Building to grab something tasty.   I suppose I would have to wear pants without holes in the knees.

Ha ha, that's great - the guy contemplating the Xmas tree decorations. Nice one!

The fellow surrounded by giant ornaments does look more than a little intimidated. He could be reaching for a weapon.

When we go out together, my wife threatens to make walk several steps behind so she can pretend she has no idea who I am.

Love the shot of the guy walking between the ornaments! Brilliant. I wish I'd taken it. It speaks to me of the way the holidays just kind of land on us and dwarf us, no matter how we feel about them. Wonderful!!
