This shot caused a great deal of discussion when I posted it on the FB group Pure Street Photography with the question…”Is this street?”
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.

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.
