Walking home after a long day of looking at emails and photos with this in my head…

Pride and joy and dirty dreams and still surviving on the street
And look at me, I’m in tatters, yeah
I’ve been battered, what does it matter

Does it matter, uh-huh

Does it matter, uh-huh, I’m a shattered

Walking through the crowds - Oct. 17, 2014

Many New Yorkers don’t like the way tourists stop in the middle of sidewalks to take pictures of the city’s great landmarks. But, on the other hand, people commute each day to Manhattan and don’t see the beauty around them as they march to their cubicles.

On his way to the office today, Yahoo News photographer Gordon Donovan stopped to photograph some of these locations on his way into work today.

Wagner beats St. Francis (Pa.) in 2 OTs 46-39

Chris Andrews threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Bryant Watts in the second overtime to lift Wagner to a 46-39 victory over St. Francis on Saturday.

Otis Wright's 2-yard run had matched St. Francis' touchdown in the first overtime, before the Seahawks (3-3, 1-0 Northeast) scored on Watts' third touchdown catch of the game and then sacked Red Flash quarterback Zack Drayer for the win.

Andrews entered the game in the second half after an injury to starter Brian Gehring and threw a 21-yard pass to Watts for a 32-25 lead with 3:10 left regulation. Drayer responded by leading the Red Flash on a 90-yard drive that culminated with a 2-yard pass to Matt Camilletti with 30 seconds remaining to send the game into overtime.

Anthony Abeid had 189 yards receiving and two scores for St. Francis (2-4, 0-1), which has lost the last seven meetings with Wagner.

The Renwick Ruin

The Renwick Ruin on Manhattan’s Roosevelt Island, also known as the Smallpox Hospital, is located on the southern tip of the island, which was called Blackwell’s Island when the structure was built between 1854 and 1856.

The Gothic Revival structure was originally constructed for treatment of the “loathsome malady,” smallpox, and for many years it was New York City’s only such institution. The hospital was designed by famed architect James Renwick Jr., who was also responsible for St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Grace Church.

It is now a picturesque ruin, one that could readily serve as the setting for a 19th-century “Gothic” romance. (Yahoo News/Landmarks Preservation Commission)

Sri Lanka wild

Just below the mainland of India, surrounded by the Bay of Bengal and the Indian Ocean, floats the tear-shaped island of Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka was devastated by the tsunami in 2004 and wracked by more than three decades of civil war that pitted rebels of the ethnic minority Tamil Tigers group against the majority Sinhalese government. A peace agreement was signed in 2009, and today, Sri Lanka’s inhabitants, principally Buddhists and Hindus, have respite for continued growth and renewal amid the island’s natural beauty.

Sri Lanka’s national parks, including a wide diversity of jungles, mountains and beaches, provide habitat for a rare assortment of indigenous animal species. These images of Sri Lankan wildlife were taken in Yala and Bundala National Parks.
