I took yhis picture about a year ago and got caught up in school and other life activities and I didn't post it. I was downtown for a meetup at South street seaport so I went early to take some pictures since I'm rarely in this area. I kid you not, I was across the street from the bull and no one was around the thing, but no sooner did I cross over to take a picture all these people/tourists appeared! I hate having random people in my photos unless they are interesting or in this case there is too large a crowd and no one is moving anytime soon. A little wikipedia info below.
Charging Bull, which is sometimes referred to as the Wall Street Bull or the Bowling Green Bull, is a 3,200 kilograms (7,100 lb) bronze sculpture by Arturo Di Modica that stands in Bowling Green Park near Wall Street in Manhattan, New York City. Standing 11 feet (3.4 m) tall and measuring 16 feet (4.9 m) long, the oversize sculpture depicts a bull, the symbol of aggressive financial optimism and prosperity, leaning back on its haunches and with its head lowered as if ready to charge. The sculpture is both a popular tourist destination which draws thousands of people a day, as well as "one of the most iconic images of New York" and a "Wall Street icon" symbolizing "Wall Street" and the Financial District.

This months eye candy is Brazilian Henzo Hulle. I originally thought he was scandinavian or from one of the eastern block countries. He's young, tall, and had a tight lean body. Grrrr, baby!(my inner cougar) Enjoy!
