When the snow first started coming down hard on Tuesday, I took a walk through Riverside Park to the river.
A few images stuck with me and I thought I would share them…
Well, the Clipper stayed east of us and NYC ended up with between 6″ and 12″ depending on your borough. It will probably be an extraordinarily expensive non major event given how many people didn’t go to work today and the cost to small business of shutting down the subway.
Long Island, Massachusetts and Maine got hit hard. It wasn’t the size of the storm but the location that was missed. I hope my Governor and Mayor will realize that weather forecasts are notoriously unreliable and you don’t cancel the world on a rumor. You prepare but you don’t act until you have some surety.
However, it was a “snow day” today. Here are a few images from this morning
A photographic portrait is a picture of someone who knows he is being photographed, and what he does with this knowledge is as much a part of the photograph as what he’s wearing or how he looks.
The Weekly Challenge is Express Yourself
My first take was 15-01-23
My second take was that
Today is “and the other”…
“The white face of the winter day came sluggishly on, veiled in a frosty mist; and the shadowy ships in the river slowly changed to black substances; and the sun, blood-red on the eastern marshes behind dark masts and yards, seemed filled with the ruins of a forest it had set on fire.”
Oh, you take the high road and I’ll take the low road…
“What a gulf between impression and expression! That’s our ironic fate—to have Shakespearean feelings and (unless by some billion-to-one chance we happen to be Shakespeare) to talk about them like automobile salesmen or teen-agers or college professors. We practice alchemy in reverse—touch gold and it turns into lead; touch the pure lyrics of experience, and they turn into the verbal equivalents of tripe and hogwash.”
The weekly challenge is Express Yourself.
Since I believe that is what I do with this blog everyday, I am choosing to highlight others I have met in my travels over the years who expressed themselves.
My first attempt is here.
If you visited Provincetown anytime in the summers between about 2000 and 2011 you may have met Ella. Damn but she could sing.
The challenge this week is Express Yourself
Since a blog is nothing but a person expressing themselves I thought I would start with moments I have caught of others expressing themselves. I may have posted these before during 2013 but I don’t think so. Even if I have I think it is a good way to kick off express yourself weekend.
As you know I always highlight a few of my fellow bloggers who take the challenge – see below. I frequently add a video. With this theme…only one choice.
“Smoke on the water
A fire in the sky”
I took Abigail back to college today and was going to blog about that but when I was almost home, driving down the West Side Highway, I looked over to NJ and saw this at the apartment complex called Avalon on the Hudson…
From the evidence of my own eyes and the news reports, it looks like the building may be a total loss. Based on reports I have read, at least, 400 people will be made homeless by the fire but, luckily, so far there are no reported casualties.

The Zoetrope, or "Wheel of Life," is an instructive Scientific Toy, illustrating in an attractive manner the persistence of an image on the retina of the eye; by revolving the cylinder by the hand, and looking through the openings, the images passing rapidly before the eye are blended, so as to give the figures the motions of life in the most natural manner.
