Winter came home, and it was well-rested after a long weekend. Today was chilly, a bit blustery, not too bad for February. Fashion week is still being assembled by workmen in Damrosch Park, but I hope to take the camera through the plaza when the beautiful people show up, preferably for a 6th year of faux-leather haute couture, my favorite by far. Most of my photos today were after dark, made on the way home. I spent most of my day reviewing a lengthy XML configuration file to determine whether I could reliably parse it with Python’s minidom module – the structure of the file was an amalgam of features added to the product over its decade-long lifespan.
