15-01-17 Weekly Photo Challenge: Serenity – Take 2

Photography, as we all know, is not real at all. It is an illusion of reality with which we create our own private world.

Arnold Newman

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Serenity. My first take is Here.

15-01-16 Weekly Photo Challenge: Serenity – Take 1

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: serenity

We interrupt this blog to say that Julianne Moore gives an extraordinary performance in Still Alice a decent but not great movie that nonetheless, thanks to Ms. Moore (ably assisted by Kristen Stewart and Alec Baldwin) destroyed the audience at the show I attended.

If I had a boat
I’d go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I’d ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
Me upon my pony on my boat

Lyle Lovett

I went to The Hudson River Boat Dock in Bear Mountain State Park today.  I needed to be by the river somewhere out of the city. It always centers me. I came back to this week’s photo challenge. Maybe I will do seven posts from this day about serenity. We shall see…
