Note: this photo was published in a Jun 18, 2010 blog titled "Family dining in DC. Celebrate Kids Restaurant Week, June 20-27." I’m always amazed by the mis-matched "context" in some of the publications of my photos: this picture was taken in Bryant Park, in mid-town Manhattan (that’s part of New York City, in case you’re from Mars); but the blog describes various outdoor restaurants where families might enjoy a pleasant lunch in Washington, DC. Oh, well…

****************************************

I had a lunchtime dentist appointment in midtown Manhattan the other day, and when it was over, I decided to walk a couple blocks over to Bryant Park, behind the New York Public Library. It was a sunny day, and I thought I might see some gorgeous babes sunbathing on the park lawn in their bikinis (even being an amateur photographer is a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it). If not, I thought perhaps I’d find some photogenic tourists or oddball New Yorkers that I could photograph.

As it turns out, almost all of the central lawn was being covered over with some kind of wooden platform — presumably for an upcoming concert performance of some kind — so nobody was sunbathing out on the grass. But since that area was unavailable, and since it was still the lunchtime period, the periphery around the central lawn was chock-a-block with people. There’s now a cafe immediately behind (i.e., to the west) of the library itself, and it was doing a land-office business. And all along the north and south sides of the park, as well as the broader western side, there were tables and chairs and benches where people could enjoy their lunch with whatever food or entertainment they had brought along.

I was already aware of the pentanque court on the western side of the park, and knew that I’d find one or two good pictures there. But I didn’t realize that the Parks Department had set up two ping-pong tables, as well as several tables for chess-players. In addition, there were a few card games underway, and there was also a section set aside for people who wanted to borrow local newspapers to read.

As for the people: I had to remind myself that because Bryant Park is smack in the middle of mid-town Manhattan (a block away from Times Square, filling the square block between 41st/42nd street, and 5th/6th Avenue), most of the people enjoying their lunch were office workers. So the men typically wore slacks and dress shirts, and a surprising number of them were also wearing suits and ties. The women wore dresses and skirts, and generally looked quite fashionable and presentable. Of course, there were also tourists and students and miscellaneous others; but overall, it was a much more "upscale" bunch of people than I’m accustomed to seeing in my own residential area on the Upper West Side.

I was surprised by how many people were sitting alone — eating alone, reading alone, listening to music alone, dozing alone, or just staring into space alone. You’ll see some of them in this album, though I didn’t want to over-emphasize their presence; equally important, many of the loners just weren’t all that interesting from a photogenic perspective. So you’ll also see lots of couples, some children, a couple of families, and occasionally larger groups of people who were eating and chatting and enjoying the warm summer day.

Three activities dominated the scene, all of which were fairly predictable, under the circumstances: eating, reading, and talking on cellphones. You would expect people to be eating at lunch-time, of course; and you wouldn’t be surprised at the notion of people reading a book as they sat behind the New York Public Library on a warm, sunny day. But the pervasiveness of the cellphones was quite astonishing … oh, yeah, there were a few laptops, too, but fewer than I might have imagined.

I’ve photographed Bryant Park several times over the past 40 years, going back to some photos of 1969 Vietnam War protest marches that you can see in this album. I was here in the summer of 2008 to take these photos; I came back in January 2009 to take these photos of the winter scene; and I returned again for these pictures in March 2009 and these these pictures in the late spring of 2009; all of these have been collected into a Flickr "collection" of albums that you can find here. But if you want to see what New York City’s midtown office workers are doing at lunch, take a look at what’s in this album.

Last summer we expanded our front yard garden and had tons of cucumbers, beans, tomatoes, greens and more. When the food is good and a part of your life it’s easier to eat what is good for you. Instead of fighting your mind and living in an emotional and mental state of lack. Cultivate the garden of your mind…

30.c. 1973 Holden Premier HQ 253ci V8 Sedan
weight loss journal

2014 Gore Aussie Muscle Mania Car Show (12-4-14)

Holden 253 V8 engine:
The Holden 253 V8 engine is an 8 cylinder cast iron v8 engine that was equipped with cast iron cylinder heads, a common pin crankshaft , over head valves with a hydraulic camshaft & non adjustable rocker gear. The Holden V8 was produced from 1969 to 2000 in Australia by General Motors Holden. The Holden V8 engine was used in many model Holdens from the Kingswood, Monaro, Premier, Statesman, Torana, Commodore plus used in the Holden commercial range of ute & panel vans as well as the Holden 1 tonner tray top.

The Holden V8 253/308 is believed to be a close relative to the Pontiac family of engines rather than the Chevrolet V8 283, 307, 327, 350 or 400 small block engines and there are no interchangeable parts from the Aussie V8 & the USA Chev engine.

It is also believed that the Holden 253 & 308 engines were designed for the RHD market as the starter motor is on the left hand side or passenger side of the vehicle as opposed to the American left hand drive cars.The oil pump on a Holden V8 engine is mounted on the passenger side front of the engine and also has the spin on style oil filter to screws directly to the oil pump.
The Holden 253 / 4.2 V8 uses a common pin crankshaft with a 3.0625 stroke with 3.625 diameter pistons
The conrods are 5.625″ long the 253 and 308 use the same conrod bearings on both the big ends, main bearings & conrods with the only major difference being the 253 uses a 5/16 conrod nut & bolts and the 308 uses a 3/8 conrod nut & bolts.

It is believed to be that General Motors Holden started the 253 cu V8 development in 1964 with the success of the inline 6 cylinder engine Holden needed a more powerful power plant to keep its market share as Ford already had its Windsor V8 engine well under way. General motors required a compact size, light weight engine with an increased displacement over the six cylinder engine.

The first Australian V8 for passenger car use had a displacement of 253 cu / 4.146 litres, a compression ratio of 9:1, and a maximum horsepower 185, with 262 lb. ft. A complete Holden 253 v8 engine from fan to flywheel including accessories like distributor, alternator & starter motor is 460 lb., The 253 Holden V8 is only 80 lb. heavier than the Holden six cylinder red motor.
(ref: www.holdenv8.com.au/?page_id=2)

The development of the Holden 253 cu. in. V8 started in 1964 when the GMH Engineering Department began a serious study for the design of the next Holden engine. The V8 configuration was chosen because it met all the requirements for compact size and light weight. It gave increased displacement over the six cylinder range without loss of smoothness and the potential for future displacement and output increase.

Following design studies which showed that GMH could satisfactorily combine the best features from world practice suitable for Holden in Australia, in a package, smaller and lighter than then equivalent displacement engines already in production, six experimental engines were built for evaluation in 1966.

A full production program was then undertaken, aiming at the provision of a smooth, powerful, durable and economic engine.The result was the first Australian V8 for volume passenger car use. The engine had a displacement of 253 cu. in., 4.146 litres, a compression ratio of 9:1, a maximum horsepower 185, and a maximum torque of 262 lb. ft. Dry weight of the complete engine assembly from fan to flywheel and with all accessories including the alternator and starter was 460 lb., only 80 lb. heavier than the light weight six cylinder engine. The overall width was only 22 inches.

The V8 was tested and proved in extensive dynamometer and road durability testing at the GMH technical centre and proving ground. Its development was aided by its inclusion as the power unit for the GMH research car the Holden Hurricane. The cylinder heads incorporated cross flow porting and large valves in a shallow wedge shaped combustion chamber for good breathing, conducive to a high specific output. The cylinder block of 3.625 cylinder bore was a compact iron casting and together with the cylinder heads, was cast in GMH foundries.

The nodular iron crankshaft of 3.06 stroke was extremely rigid due to the short stroke and large diameter main and connecting rod journals. Optimum engine balance was obtained by close weight control of pistons, connecting rods etc., and by individual balance of crankshaft, flywheel and clutch, followed by a dynamic balance determined on the completed engine assembly when running under its own power.

Piston and piston ring specifications were developed to provide quietness, long life and low oil consumption. The valve train represented the first use in Australian manufacture of a design incorporating stable cylindrical aluminium rocker arm pivots in conjunction with pressed sheet metal rocker arms. As in 6 cylinder engines, GMH manufactured hydraulic lifters were used, incorporating a long plunger travel to allow the use of the non-adjustable rocker supports. Camshaft drive was by roller chain, with neoprene damper on drive side.

From 1971 the 253 was fitted to the Statesman and, in 1974, the engines were added to the new larger LH Torana range and was offered as well on the LX model range, but not the final UC range which appeared in 1978. Both engine capacities were offered on the first Commodores which appeared in 1978. The 253 ci version was dropped in 1984 and was not offered in the VK model range. At the same time the special editions modified by Holden’s official after-market tuner, Holden Dealer Team began introducing the 304ci (4.9 litre) version of the engine, created to slip underneath the 5000 cc engine capacity cut-off in Group A touring car regulations, allowing Commodore competitors to run at a lower competition weight.

Fuel injection replaced the carburettors initially on the VL Commodore SS Group A SV, again with Group A touring car racing in mind, this car produced by replacement after-market tuner Holden Special Vehicles (HSV). While Group A disappeared after the VN Commodore, the fuel injected 304 engine was offered in Commodores right up until the VS III Commodore utility.

An adipose waves good-bye at my door as it heads off the porch and out into the world.

[The Adipose originally came from the planet Adipose 3. After the Adiposian First Family lost the nursery planet, they hired wet nurses in order to find new places to breed their offspring. On Earth, the wet-nurse Matron Cofelia set up Adipose Industries and disguised the Adipose seeds in the form of weight-loss pills, using humans as surrogates. The pill gained over a million customers quickly. When the Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble discovered the alien secret behind the supposed diet pills, Matron Cofelia ordered the immediate birthing of all Adipose. The Adipose nursery ship collected the babies then ordered the death of "Miss Foster", as Cofelia was known, to remove any evidence, as breeding on a Level 5 planet was an illegal act under the Shadow Proclamation. ( Partners in Crime) After being taken from Earth, the Shadow Proclamation took the baby Adipose into care.

The Adipose reproduced on Nursery Worlds. When on Earth, the Adipose’s development was started when a pill from Adipose Industries was ingested. The young Adipose would grow, collecting fat from around the body. Every night, the Adipose would then be born and leave the body. They could convert other material into fat; however, this practice was not good for their health. Alternative materials included the bones, organs, muscles and many other human tissues. In emergencies, this was used to dispose of people by turning them completely into Adipose.]
