From “Don’t judge a book by its cover” to “Don’t look at the jug, but at what it contains” (an old Rabbinic saying), we’re constantly taught that the contents of things are more important than the vessels, wrappers, and boxes that hold them in place. This week, let’s give outer shells their due and focus our lenses on things that contain other things.

Since wrappers are included in the definition I feel well within bounds with these two containers.
I walked through Central Park yesterday on my way to see the Garry Winogrand exhibit at The Met. I will have more to say about that another day. On my way to the Met I came across this scene.
Here, the packaging is exactly the same idea but the wrappings are so very different. Do they tell us any truth about what they contain?
Does the way we see it make a difference in our view of the packaging?
Apropos of nothing: This was Abigail’s favorite song when she was three years old…
Ailsa’s theme this week is Purple. I know I previously showed a different angle on this location but how could I resist?
From the southwest we travel to the northeast for a double shot of purple today.
Here are some other purple views…
I don’t do throwback Thursday. Never have. But recently my mother dug an old piece of my history up and I shared it on several forms of social media. So I figured, let’s go back half a decade to Cape Cod in July 2009 and watch the oyster farmers at work.
What did my mother dig up? I am sure this will be familiar to some of you…(personal information is blacked out). Without looking! Who knows what 1-H means?
We live in cities you’ll never see on screen
Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run things
Living in ruins of a palace within my dreams
And you know, we’re on each other’s team

There are, naturally, lots of relics on the Hudson but perhaps the most famous one is Bannerman castle on Pollepel Island. Last summer while climbing Storm King Mountain and Butter Hill I was able to take some photographs on a humid and stormy day.
Here are other relics:
I am trying an experiment tonight. You will know the video slide show worked (click to play) if you see no further typing from me.
I talked briefly yesterday about the “The Photographic Tools For Travel Photography” taught by David H Wells at ICP. He truly is a remarkable teacher. If he is doing a class or workshop in your area, take it. You can find his photo site here: http://davidhwells.com/ and his blog/educational site HERE: http://thewellspoint.com/
One thing David strongly recommended is to ask fellow photographers to give you their edit of your work. So I am asking you, my readers to jump in!
As I said yesterday we all, David, the class, and myself thought my work bordered or was street photography. As it happens I am in Wellfleet and thought I would ask your opinion. Which of the following do you think are street and which travel? Comments below or back channel are both appreciated.
Travel or street these young women should not be doing this. It is completely destructive of the dunes.
