Last week when my mother-in-law was in town we went to Bergdorf’s to see the windows. The main windows on Fifth Avenue featured DayGlo colors in both the clothes and the artwork and an extensive list of phobias. I was most in love with the hot pink suit, especially with the champagne-colored lace slip peeking out (look for the “Freudian slip”).
A Bergdorf window on 57th Street.
I loved all these doors. At the top of the photo the reflection of the building across the street has been captured in the glare, adding windows to this image. A happy mistake!
The patient (note the Rorschach test in hand and Dr. Freud’s portrait on the wall).

Thalassophobia, Fear of the Sea.
I do feel like I have one phobia, astraphobia, the fear of thunder and lightning. It really scares me to see lightning, even from far away, and sometimes creeps me out in pictures too, if the photo shows a direct strike. Shudder, shudder.
Any phobias you care to share?
