17-03-02 The Last Time Ever I Saw

Our best friends are moving out of their gorgeous Riverside Drive apartment (to another beautiful apartment further uptown). They asked me to come by and shoot it for the memory files which I did 20 minutes ago. Those pics are for them but, they also have a spectacular view of the Hudson River. I’m heading out of town in 20 minutes so did not have a lot of time to work on anything but here is one pic from a 60 mph, 50 degree day.

“Well, here at last, dear friends, on the shores of the Sea comes the end of our fellowship in Middle-earth. Go in peace! I will not say: do not weep; for not all tears are an evil.”

16-08-15 WPC: Fun (Hudson River Edition)

RSJohnson_1608141608149938Last night we took a sunset journey down the Hudson to the Statue of Liberty aboard the Schooner America 2.0 run by Classic Harbor Line. Some thunder, a little rain and a great deal cooler than the 94 degrees (heat index 107) that it was on shore.

Fun? Indeed it was.

16-07-06 WPC Opposites

If you have spent anytime around the QH you know this is my favorite subject…
“The Little Red Lighthouse and The Great Gray Bridge” It is a wonderful book

And how more opposite could they be? Then add in the large ship and small boat…?

16-02-19 Weekly Photo Challenge -Seasons (Hudson River Edition)

The challenge this week is seasons.  We have not had much winter in the northeast yet but the last few weeks have done their best.

These images were shot in and around Highland Falls, West Point, and Little Stoney Point.

“Gently the waves would break (Lily heard them in her sleep); tenderly the light fell (it seemed to come through her eyelids). And it all looked, Mr. Carmichael thought, shutting his book, falling asleep, much as it used to look years ago.”

To The Lighthouse – Virginia Wolff
