This shot is from a plane as we crossed the border back into the USA (formerly the home of the brave, now apparently the home of the terrified). For those who believe in the efficacy of walls, this might be a bit distressing.
For the rest of us, I hope you find it liberating.
This week’s challenge is nostalgia. In my experience, once you are past about age 8 the choices are limitless. I was photographing some third grade students the other day and one said to another: “Remember when we were little kids we used to…”
I went to Yonkers last week to revisit the Glenwood Power Station. The construction/destruction of this most beautiful ruin seems to have slowed or stopped. The visit was nostalgic as it is one of the first places outside of NYC proper I visited when I first started The Quotidian Hudson. Along with the Little Red Lighthouse it truly has my heart.
After visiting it I was walking the Yonkers waterfront and came across the subject of today’s photo. It brought back 1968 with a vengeance…
I have been running around and out of town so thought I would combine the last three weekly challenges: Frame; Edge; Mirror into one shot. With the help of the lovely Rebecca Campbell, I was able to do just that.
