Halloween Dog Parade 2012. 10 Cutest Dog Halloween Costumes.
Tompkins Square Park. East Village, New York City.
Anyone who knows me well, knows that the annual Halloween Dog Parade is quite possibly my favorite annual event in my neighborhood (check out last year’s dog costumes here). It has taken place every year for the last 22 years in Tompkins Square Park which is located in the East Village. Dog lovers from everywhere dress their dogs up to compete for various prizes.
The costumes were awesome as usual this year. In terms of topical costumes, there was one dog dressed as Big Bird (with a “Will work for treats” sign), a dog dressed as evil incarnate in New York City with several cups larger than 16 oz strapped to his costume in reference to the large soda/drink ban here in NYC, and I looked and looked for dogs with binders but only found two!
The level of cute is so high it is off the charts!
I would especially like to give a shout-out to Mamma Biscuit who is the third dog in this photo-set. Her owners rocked and I found out she is something of a canine celebrity online! Here is her blog: Desperately Seeking Mamma Biscuit

Humanities Magazine January/February 2012 - New York City photography by Vivienne Gucwa.
Central Park, New York City
I came home today to a copy of Humanities Magazine for January/February 2012 waiting in my mailbox that contains two of my Central Park photos. I was contacted for usage of these photos a while back so it was nice to see them in print finally!
Humanities Magazine is the official magazine of the National Endowment for the Humanities. I was really psyched to work with them because I strongly support their efforts. The NEH gives grants to cultural institutions such as museums, archives, libraries, colleges, universities, public television, radio stations and individual scholars. These various grants strengthen teaching and learning in the humanities in schools and colleges across the nation, facilitate research, preserve and provide access to cultural and educational resources and strengthen the institutional base of the humanities.

The article my photos accompany is called: Public Parking by Anna Maria Gillis and is about Frederick Law Olmstead, the co-designer of Central Park and it centers around his fondness for designing pastoral escapes for the urban masses of New York City in Central Park.
