      Where did you take this, specifically? See, I wrote this poem about closing out the world with your music (not in a bad way) and this picture kind of fits it =] here it is:

      My Music

      As I walk along the crowded sidewalk of Battery Park
      I notice something;
      There is music everywhere!

      The footsteps thudding on the concrete create a beat-
      this is where the song begins.
      The sound of taxi horns screaming catches my attention
      and I add that too the song too.
      Then comes the sound of the river lapping against the shore.
      It adds a nice touch, so I throw it in the mix.
      The melody- the most important part of the song-
      is the people.
      A few girls giggle, a group of teens hoot and holler at each other.

      But some of the people are blocking out the noise with their earphones.
      I wonder if they know what they're missing, or are they
      oblivious to the symphony out here?
      Well, I've heard enough of the Battery Park song for one day,
      So I put my iPod on and tune the world out.

      The notes swirl around me, filling my ears and capturing my elation, sending me high into the clouds.
      The sun is shining down on me and I feel like I could fly.
      I smile and turn the volume up even further so the music pulses in my ears.
      It's turned up more than it should be, but that's the way I like it.
      My step falls into cadence with the drum beats as I walk along the crowded street,
      singing my own song, living in my own little world.
      Listening to my music.
