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…
or will we let it end up like this…

People’s Climate March and Mobilization
I made a mistake and booked myself to work tomorrow but hope to get back in time for the second half of the march…There are a lot of actions around the world tomorrow to coincide with the United Nations Climate Summit.
When the winter rains
come pourin’ down
On that new home of mine,
Will you think of me
and wonder if I’m fine?
Will your restless heart
come back to mine
On a journey thru the past.
Will I still be in your eyes
and on your mind?
One of my favorite views of The George Washington Bridge is from the north. I love this view from The Heather Garden of The Cloisters. I took this image on 9/16/11.
Since Abigail headed off to college I have, for no apparent reason, decided that it is time to edit and organize the pre-digital photos that I took from the time I met Katherine until 2006 when I completed the digital transition.
I can be an idiot sometimes.
One of the hardest parts of doing this is that, as those of you of a certain age will recall, at a certain point photo labs started a service war that involved given you double sets of prints. I kept both…
We will not discuss the boxes of slides that I have not even ventured near. I just completed 1995. Happily Abigail was born the next year. Sadly that means the amount of photographs doubles? (no) triples or quadruples.
This has nothing to do with double exposures. However it seems on one of our cross country trips I had an explosion of interest in in-camera double exposures. For some reason this is the one I liked best today.

I bet that it is no surprise that I am revisiting Humanity. My first go is Here.
This time I thought I would iPhone it. The first three shots are from a fascinating opening I went to tonight. The show is called the“Bronx Artist Documentary Project“.
It is a very simple idea “The Bronx Artist Documentary Project is a borough-wide collaborative endeavor involving Bronx photographers documenting Bronx visual artists at work in their studios or other Bronx venues.“
The results are really good and moving in some cases. I would have gone to see the exhibit in any case but since I know three of the photographers (Angel Franco, Ricky Flores, Robert Fass) and one of the documented artists (Helena Starcevic) I went tonight. If you are in NYC between now and October 8th, you should try to check it out.
The second set of pictures are from my visit to The New Museum.
