Which Way Challenge

IMG_20180929_120416.jpg

This week I’m sharing some stairs and doors. The top two are in New York and the last one’s from Lincoln Park, Chicago.

The Which Way Challenge, that Cee began, has been picked up by the Sonofthebeach69 blogger.  The beauty of it is that it’s very free form. You can include images of doors, gates, roads, streets exits, signs, paths, waterways, you name it.

Very French looking, n’est pas?

New York has lots of doors with character. This week I’ll share some of the more elegant ones.

Shake Shack

Since I’d seen the 60 Minutes feature on Shake Shack, it seemed high time that I visit this high caloric eatery. Ordering was efficient and the man who took our orders was polite. Even though

I soon got my ShakeBurger and chocolate shake. The shake was decadently delicious, while the burger was good, but nothing exceptional. My friend had the same sandwich and a salted caramel shake, which she said was very good.

I’d say the burger isn’t on par with what we’d get a Hackney’s, a legendary Chicago-area spot, and it’s not as good as what people make themselves at home, but you’d pay a few dollars more at a better spot.

If you look at the calorie count, you’ll see that Shake Shack is an indulgence. I’d have tried a holiday shake, but those were over 800 calories!

The interior was a step up from a Wendy’s or even the nicest McDonalds.

Shake Shack started in New York and is moving across the country.

This week’s prompt is court-related. Judges, lawyers, and trials come to mind. Here’s what I found from Flickr Commons.

John Marshall portrait, National Gallery

John Marshall was the fourth and longest serving Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.

“Under the 34-year leadership of Chief Justice John Marshall, the Supreme Court of the United States transformed itself from a minor court of legal issues into a powerful third branch of government. Marshall infused his court with the power to declare laws of the federal government unconstitutional and to declare that state laws violated the federal constitution. Further, Marshall provided the Supreme Court and the new republic a vision of the nature of the Union–a nation powerful enough to act but not so powerful as to smother the states. Marshall’s “judicial nationalism” became a beacon of unity in the United States before the Civil War. Most important, John Marshall defended and fulfilled the constitutional goals of a strong federal judiciary and a Supreme Court equal to the president and Congress in prestige, influence, and power ” (Historic  World Leaders, 1994).

Below are two very serious judicious photos from Canadian Archives found in Flickr Commons:
