15-03-24 Who Are You -

“…and then we get the month of March which God designed to show people who don’t drink what a hangover feels like”

Garrison Keillor

A friend remarked to me today that my work tends in two directions…either very stark or very busy. I post this picture to say…

you are correct, sir!

15-03-22 He Shoots

I took Abigail and her friends back to college today so haven’t really had a chance to work on anything. I really like the colors and light on this building but I could not find a position in the few minutes I had where I could get the building without the branches.

15-03-21 Seven Pictures -Fourteen Poems

I spent all day working in Lightroom on the pictures I shot yesterday in celebration of Spring.

In the process I “found” fourteen  2-line poems. I “created” them by taking the playlist of the 14 songs I had on auto repeat and for the first group of seven, taking the first line of each song in order played and then, for the second group, taking the first line of song 1, the second of song 2, the third of song 3 etc…

Scarily some of them are actually not just nonsensical.

So, to accompany your journey through my photographic day yesterday, here we go.

From my apartment

I look at you all see the love there that’s sleeping/Baby we’ve been together for a long, long time

 I had me a boy, turned him into a man/You get a shiver in the dark

George Washington Bridge

I look at you all see the love there that’s sleeping/You get home from work and then we just turn out the lights

Oh, then I let him go./A band is blowing Dixie double four time

Do you remember I searched you out/Will you dance, Charlie boy, will you dance?

We’ve been doin’ this longer than you’ve been alive/They call me the breeze

RSJohnson_Hudson_1503201205

I stood still is what I did/Will you dance, Charlie boy, will you dance?

Bottles of whisky and bottles of beer/Ain’t no change in me

MOMA

Outside another yellow moon/Hey babe, what’s in your eyes?

I hear Mariachi static on my radio/got no time for the corner boys, down in the street makin’ all that noise,

It was a teenage wedding/Oh what an ordinary day

But when Pierre found work/In America

Advanced Lighting w/Robert Meyer @ICP

Let me know how many of the songs you can identify…

15-03-17 Happy The Day That Will Not Be Named

I was going to call this edition of QH 15-03-17 Throw-up Tuesday but that just did not seem classy…

In NYC the day is celebrated by many underage and barely aged drinkers coming in from the suburbs and drinking all of the day and all of the night…

Not everyone goes that way, of course, just enough to keep the reputation alive.

Lots of green in town today…

15-03-15 Weekly Photo Challenge – Wall

Great Caesar’s ghost!

The Challenge is Wall.

Here is my 2nd Attempt

Here is my 1st

Today I thought that we might visit the walls of Blarney Castle in County Cork, Ireland. The gent below is getting into position for “the kiss”.

Ireland 090

It is the Ides of March and in honor of that momentous occasion…

Other views of walls from around the blogosphere…
