4-10-14 Night Shot

Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems. -

Rainer Maria Rilke

 

Last night it felt like spring. Almost everyone on the streets had clearly made a decision to dress as if it was 5 degrees warmer than it was and the wind was blowing 5 mph less. I just decided to wander around with the camera and play a bit.

Take 1

The Accidental Cootchie Mama is less than 15 miles from completing her 444 mile walk of The Natchez Trace. If I haven’t mentioned it before… :) … you should read her book: To Live Forever An After Life Journey of Meriwether Lewis.

A few other viewpoints:

3-30-14 Travel Theme:Statues

We have a somewhat famous statue here in NYC…I refer to her as the first lighthouse of the Hudson River. (Ailsa grabbed one view of her for her blog but I thought I would take a different look.)…DSC_0083

The lady is hardly the only statue here in new York. One of my favorites stands in Kimlau Square in Chinatown: the statue of Lin Zexu.

3-28-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life

The Challenge: Street Life

New York City offers many possibilities on this topic but after I checked through the archives I figured I should see what some of the other responses were. I came across this post from Vlad over at Wind Against Current and had an Aha! moment. I decided to complete his trip…In NYC we frequently take the street underground. It can look something like this…

and finally street views from Andra Watkins, The Accidental Cootchie Mama. If all went according to plan she should have finished today less than 75 miles from Nashville. That means she has walked 370 miles over the 444 mile Natchez Trace.  Given her effort, you really should check out her book.  To Live Forever An Afterlife Journey Of Meriwether Lewis.


3-23-14 Travel Theme: Pink

Ms. Ailsa’s theme of the week is pink. For some reason this reminded me of the time way back when the internet was a fairly new adventure and “you’ve got mail” was a big deal, when Katherine needed some information for a recipe she was writing. She jumped on the computer, logged on to whatever we were using back then to search and typed in the word “cherry.” She was not prepared for the variety or amount of information that appeared.

This image is from last September at Photoville. I think it should be pink enough.

Here are some other pinks:

http://loganbruin.wordpress.com/2014/03/21/travel-theme-pink/

I tried to find an appropriate image from The Accidental Cootchie Mama for pink but the strangest thing happened when I typed her handle into Google’s image search. I did find a number of pictures of Andra but nothing pink. On the other hand I saw a number of images that were not her but…

Finally…this is the not safe for work version of a song called “……. Perfect” by the pinkest person I know of…

3-9-14 Weekly Photo Challenge 2: A Different Perspective

The Weekly Challenge is perspective. My first go was here.  While my first attempt involved changing the distance involved in viewing an object this one challenges focus. I shot this while on my 5 mile walk up the river yesterday.  Lots of new stuff to see! Even a temporary change of season brings people out of their shells.

Here is view #1

3-6-14 Spring Forward

Since we spring forward this weekend, I thought I would take one more look at winter. I’m sure this has happened other times during the winter but I never saw it before. Two days ago I was walking through Bryant Park and passed by the fountain. It was a cold day.

RSJohnson_1403040028

A really cold day.

RSJohnson_1403040038

My friend Andra who is walking The Natchez Trace is having not great weather but at least she doesn’t have to deal with 18 degree weather. On her blog this morning, she was kind enough to answer i question I sent her. Check out her blog and check out her book!

3-5-14 The Jacob Javits Center

After yesterday’s post, Not All Plans Work,  several people asked me what the Javits Center looked like.  I can honestly say I did not take many pictures of it but I did take a few. The Jewelry Show is in town and I shot that from a landing above the floor.

RSJohnson_Hudson_140304000-24

This is a side view of the main entrance. The lower level is for smokers and shuttle buses.

Lets look in on The Accidental Cootchie Mama’s walk, shall we?
