9-30-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime – The Final Time

I couldn’t leave the theme without posting my favorite night shot of 2014. I believe I posted this just about two months ago so call it a flashback if you like.

Taken on August 10 at Blackfish Creek.

9-29-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime 3 – Brooklyn Edition

Back to Nighttime.

I still have not posted my favorite night picture but I was in Williamsburg last night with The ICP class: From Hipster Heaven to New Jerusalem, led by Andrew Lichtenstein and this just jumped into my camera. Simple and clean.

Long time readers of QH may remember my write up of the brilliant Coney Island/Brighton Beach walk Andrew led back in May of 2013 or the Lower East Side walk in October of 2013.

This walk was equally good. Pictures to follow. Someday…

9-27-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime (Que Sera Sera)

Nighttime

Told you I would be back.  I love the night, I always have. I love the different feel, the texture of the air, the shadows, the mystery.  I also like the night because no one else is around to interrupt your train of thought, to demand answers to questions you have answered already, to tell you that this project is a crisis and that email must be answered. Eh, I am a little bit grouchy today. Too many people wanting things, answers etc. Que Sera Sera.

Anyway, I love the night and I especially love the night on Blackfish Creek in Wellfleet, Cape Cod, MA.

I think I will return to this challenge frequently. But I thought that I would start simply.

9-25-14 Heavy Metal Thunder

Get your motor runnin’
Head out on the highway
Lookin’ for adventure
And whatever comes our way
Yeah Darlin’ go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

RSJohnson_1406191181

I like smoke and lightning
Heavy metal thunder
Racin’ with the wind
And the feelin’ that I’m under
Yeah Darlin’ go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

RSJohnson_140619

Like a true nature’s child
We were born, born to be wild
We can climb so high
I never wanna die

Born to be wild
Born to be wild

Mars Bonfire

09-23-14 Wake Me Up When September Ends

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
wake me up when September ends

Billie Joe Armstrong

It rained almost two inches on September 23, 2011.

RSJohnson_Hudson_1109230025

But not everyone wants to block September out by sleeping

They still block it out but in other ways.

9-22-14 Last Sunset Summer 2014

As I post this at 10:29 PM EDT the Autumn Equinox is here. In New York, the summer was not very summer like. I will miss it anyway as it was a momentous season for my family.

I went down to the river this evening to say goodbye to the summer. The wind was blowing hard and the temperature was dropping. Fall is here. These are a few of the images that I brought back.

9-21-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Endurance – It Looks To Have Been A Great March. BUT Are You Going To VOTE!

As I feared I missed today’s Climate March but from friend’s reports it was a great success and a good coming together. BUT, if the people who marched do not vote and do not get their friends to vote, at least in the USA it will all be for nought. Our fellow citizens, the corporate ones, have bought Congress, especially the Republican side of the aisle (sorry but it is true), lock, stock and barrel. If they take the Senate, the little that has been done disappears. Period, end of sentence.

Do we have the endurance to get out there and rouse the vote, to pull, push, whine, nag, needle, show the difference, and push and push and push to get our apathetic friends, relatives and colleagues to VOTE?

Do we have the endurance to keep it looking like this…

RSJohnson_1409205777

or will we let it end up like this…
