31415 Happy Pi Day- Weekly Travel Photo Theme Challenge – “Fantastic Wall”

Weekly Challenge = Wall

Ailsa’s Travel Theme = Fantastic

My first wall = here

I know that at some previous point I used these images but some things are too obvious not to use. This may not be exactly the type of fantastic that Ailsa was thinking of but, I find this too be fantastical in its existence and appearance ass well as its disappearance and it is most definitely a wall, so, there you go.

1-1-11 Floating With The River

15-03-12 Throw Back Thursday – Who was this guy?

Originally posted on The Quotidian Hudson:

The River Day 1 (1-1-11)

When I was RIFed from my job (RIF=Reduction In Force  – corporate terminology for: “Goodbye, we are not firing you BUT your job…it’s gone”), I was very uncertain of how to occupy my time.  I was casting about for something and my wife said: “you are constantly taking pictures, why don’t you just do what you love and shoot”. So I did. I took a class at ICP, to add structure to my thoughts and life, and started to think about what I wanted to shoot. It soon became clear to me that I was drawn to the Hudson River on an almost daily basis. So, I decided that I would shoot the river every day no matter the weather or how I was feeling.  Some days, it might be from a distance but I would shoot it everyday. So I have. Today is January…

15-03-10 Graceful Orange – Challenge Theme

“Tell me I’m clever, Tell me I’m kind, Tell me I’m talented,Tell me I’m cute,
Tell me I’m sensitive, Graceful and wise,
Tell me I’m perfect -
But tell me the truth.”
Shel Silverstein

The Travel Theme this week is graceful.

The Weekly Photo Challenge is orange.

Therefore:

RSJohnson_Hudson_ 111219-46

“He looked like an Italian, was dressed like an Englishman, and had the independent air of an American–a combination which caused sundry pairs of feminine eyes to look approvingly after him, and sundry dandies in black velvet suits, with rose-colored neckties, buff gloves, and orange flowers in their buttonholes, to shrug their shoulders, and then envy him his inches.”

Louisa May Alcott

My first orange is here.

My second orange is over here.

Other graces and oranges are below.

15-03-09 Weekly Photo Challenge – Orange Again

The challenge this week is orange. Now, of course, back when life was not as crazy as it is now, orange stood for the second highest terrorist alert warning color.  Ah, those were the days, eh?

But…

“Those were the days my friend
We thought they’d never end
We’d sing and dance forever and a day
We’d live the life we choose
We’d fight and never lose”

Gene Raskin

My first orange go is here.

But today I thought I would go with something a bit more traditional…

“Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze”

Sheldon Harnick

15-03-08 Orange – Weekly Photo Challenge

Orange may be the new black but that isn’t exactly what was called for by the challenge.

Me, I’m challenged wondering what changed my blues to orange…

15-03-05 Weekly Travel Photo Theme Challenge [Environment Reward]

Now I realize that most of my fellow New Yorkers and Northeasterners are a bit tired of the winter. I am not. I think it has been a brutal winter but in NYC it has been cold but not that snowy. Today we actually got a bunch of snow (6″-8″, I believe) and for the first time all winter I was able to go for a walk in the storm. Sadly they closed the walkway over the George Washington Bridge. I’m not sure if that was because of the storm or because not 1 but 2 people jumped off it yesterday. One from the lower deck after exiting his car and a few minutes later, one from the upper deck after exiting his bike. However I got to tramp around in the woods and then walk the greenway down to 155th Street.

One of the many things I like about NYC is that you can find “wilderness”/country inside the city. So this fits Ailsa’s Travel Theme: Environment and for me it was a Reward to do this which is the theme of the Weekly Photo Challenge.

As always…click the pic to make it full size.

Here was my first reward

Here are other environments and rewards:
