SEIZE THE DAY!!!! This project reminds me of Community Season 1 Episode 3 where Jeff Winger takes a slacker class and his assignment is to seize the day. He fails over and over. :lol:

Have to agree with the above, not much time to get this one right.


Cheers

This could have been an entry but it was taken in May. Near Times Square there is a cafe called Times Scare. I had gone earlier during the day but when I returned during the night I saw this little guy with a bin outside with his foot on a pedal. When unsuspecting people go past he pushed the pedal down and the head pops up. The guy on the right almost went out of the frame but his expression says it all.
