4:15 p.m., Staunton, Va.: "Having fun with the kids on a warm fall afternoon at Gypsy Hill Park. We wanted a picture for A Day in Gay America and they decided it should be in the tree. Maybe because this is an activity we all love. Once they decided on the tree, it was very important to be IN a tree!! We had a wonderful afternoon in the park, one of our favorite places to go." —Carrie Humphreys


4:16 p.m., New York City: Joel Shoemaker from our advertising and sales department says, "Even though it's packed with tourists who walk way too slow, Times Square still amazes me every time I walk through it. For a guy raised in Utah who dreamed of living in New York, it's a fantastic walk between the subway and work."
