9-30-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime – The Final Time

I couldn’t leave the theme without posting my favorite night shot of 2014. I believe I posted this just about two months ago so call it a flashback if you like.

Taken on August 10 at Blackfish Creek.

9-27-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime (Que Sera Sera)

Nighttime

Told you I would be back.  I love the night, I always have. I love the different feel, the texture of the air, the shadows, the mystery.  I also like the night because no one else is around to interrupt your train of thought, to demand answers to questions you have answered already, to tell you that this project is a crisis and that email must be answered. Eh, I am a little bit grouchy today. Too many people wanting things, answers etc. Que Sera Sera.

Anyway, I love the night and I especially love the night on Blackfish Creek in Wellfleet, Cape Cod, MA.

8-6-14 69th Anniversary

The sheep’s in the meadow
The cow’s in the corn
Now is the time for a child to be born
You’ll laugh at the moon and you’ll cry for the sun
And if it’s a boy he’ll carry a gun
Sang the crow on the cradle

And if it should be that this baby’s a girl
Never you mind if her hair doesn’t curl
With rings on her fingers and bells on her toes
A shadow above her wherever she goes
Sang the crow on the cradle

The crow on the cradle
The black on the white
Somebody’s baby is born for a fight
The crow on the cradle
The white on the black
Somebody’s baby is not coming back
Sang the crow on the cradle

Bring me my gun and I’ll shoot
That bird dead
That’s what your mother and
Father once said
A crow on the cradle what can we do
This is the thing I must leave up to you
Sang the crow on the cradle

Not all creatures care…

The Walrus and the Carpenter
Walked on a mile or so,
And then they rested on a rock
Conveniently low:
And all the little Oysters stood
And waited in a row.

“The time has come,” the Walrus said,
“To talk of many things:
Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax–
Of cabbages–and kings–
And why the sea is boiling hot–
And whether pigs have wings.

Lewis Carroll

5-2-14 Almost Off The Grid

20140502-171509.jpg

I am on the road on some family business in places that have no internet access. We own
one of these portable devices that allows you to get online basically anywhere but I forgot it at home. I don’t actually think I forgot. I think I wanted to disconnect for a day or two.
As you can see I can get online with my phone but it is bizarrely slow so no blog reading for me. I will catch up with you all soon.
Meanwhile I have to say, it doesn’t matter what brings me here. As long as I can get to the water for an hour.
