On the Hudson
It is extremely, bluely, cold.

I come upon rather a jolly crew, and ask if I can take their picture.Hint: Pretend to be a tourist. Tourists take pictures of anything -- no questions asked.I wonder what these guy are doing. They say: fishing.

"You should wait 'til the diver comes up! ...or what we call bait!"Much laughter ensues.
On the Hudson
Glug, glug, glug. Ice, debris and who knows what else........
On the Hudson
But, lo and behold !.....
On the Hudson
The diver emerges in his deep-sea diving suit....
On the Hudson
And waves quite merrily at me.
