October 27, 2011 was a grey and rainy day…
But you might not have realized that if you were at Photo Plus Expo at the Javits Center and visited the Nikon booth
I had not checked my spam filter for 2 weeks. There were over 800 spam messages. It is possible that one or two of you might have been caught up in the spam filter and I did not see your comment. My apologies but I simply could not scan 800+ pieces of mail looking for the misplaced diamond.
“A love letter lost in the mail, forgotten, miss delivered and then discovered years later and received by the intended is romantic. A love letter ending up in someone’s spam filter is just annoying.”

Today was an Extra day all around. Friday the 13th AND a full moon? What’s up with that? Anyway the moon put me in mind of this Cape Cod extra. The shot was lined up and ready to go and suddenly the fog thinned slightly…
Some other extras…
Ailsa’s travel theme this week is: Misty.
Dusk at the river on January 11th, 2014.
Back on February 1, 2011 a mile or so up the river was pretty misty as well:
Yesterday Andra finished the Natchez Trace walk! Read about her journey to the finish here.
Some other views of mist:
Drove to Boston this afternoon. Horrible traffic. Arrived at my parent’s house to discover their wireless is not working. They didn’t know this. I will try to get this fixed tomorrow but in the meantime I can’t upload any of the photographs I intended.
Luckily I did take a picture of the cause of the traffic.
“Freedom of thought is best promoted by the gradual illumination of men’s minds which follows from the advance of science.”
Illuminated. That is the theme Ailsa picked this week. Before I came upon the burning bank yesterday I had been down by the Hudson. Now yesterday was a typical April day in New York City. Warmish, rainy, and as dusk rolled in, so did the fog. However there was enough illumination for me to shoot.
Here, I illuminate other views.
Talkin’ to myself and feelin’ old
Sometimes I’d like to quit
Nothing ever seems to fit
Nothing to do but frown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down.
What I’ve got they used to call the blues
Nothin’ is really wrong
Feelin’ like I don’t belong
Some kind of lonely clown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down.
I don’t even particularly like The Carpenters and here I am quoting them…
After I read the post on today’s Broken Light: A Photography Collective, the picture below taken on May 22nd, another foggy and muggy day, came to mind.
If you are not familiar with the work of Broken Light I truly believe you should check them out. Unlike Samantha Pugsley, today’s Broken Light photographer, I love rain and fog. It is the sort of weather that invigorates me and pulls me out of my blues (“pace” Karen Carpenter). I think Samantha and I might be able to have an interesting dialogue via photograph on the subject. Feelings are feelings and there is no right or wrong but the contrast might be enlightening.
One of the things that I love about this picture is the way, to my eye, the tug and barge look like a submarine in a World War 2 picture creeping up on the Circle Line boat. But you know Bogie is the captain of the Circle Line and will figure out an answer with the help of Lauren Bacall.

The Zoetrope, or "Wheel of Life," is an instructive Scientific Toy, illustrating in an attractive manner the persistence of an image on the retina of the eye; by revolving the cylinder by the hand, and looking through the openings, the images passing rapidly before the eye are blended, so as to give the figures the motions of life in the most natural manner.
