16-03-15 The Ides Of March

Who is it in the press that calls on me?
I hear a tongue, shriller than all the music,
Cry ‘Caesar!’ Speak; Caesar is turn’d to hear.
Beware the ides of March.
What man is that?
A soothsayer bids you beware the ides of March.
Set him before me; let me see his face.
Fellow, come from the throng; look upon Caesar.
What say’st thou to me now? speak once again.
Beware the ides of March.
He is a dreamer; let us leave him: pass.

A perfect sky for this day…


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.


02-16-16 Weekly Photo Challenge – Life Imitates Art “The Millennial Godot”

I call these images

The Millennial Godot…

The original:

“”Let’s go. Yes, let’s go. (They do not move).”

The Millennial:

“Let’s go. Yes, let’s go. (They leave).”


Of course…they return…

Special thanks to Glòria Juan Villegas for the excellent performance in my little updated event.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Time

“…takes a cigarette/puts it in your mouth” – Bowie

nope wrong song…

So you live day to day,
And you dream about tomorrow, oh
And the hours go by like minutes
And the shadows come to stay
So you take a little something
To make them go away
I could have done so many things, baby
If I could only stop my mind
From wonderin’ what I left behind
And from worrying ’bout this wasted time


The challenge is time

My answer?

Well, an answer, I believe, is found in this snowy portrait…


16-02-03 Empty Room

Someone suggested to me that I should do a series of images around the theme of “Empty Rooms”. Coincidentally that same day I read an interview with Sam Shepard, who I consider to be the greatest living American playwright who said in answer to the question “Where do you work now?”

“More and more by myself. Absolutely by myself. If there’s even a dog in the room, I get a little nervous.”

So he needs an empty room to write in these days. Of course, no room is ever really empty. If nothing else they always seem to have air in them.

Someone else suggested it was time for me to do more self portraits. So I thought I might combine the two ideas…

Here is an early attempt.




16-02-02 Weekly Photo Challenge

Words to live by…

“The more ugly, older, more cantankerous, more ill and poorer I become, the more I try to make amends by making my colors more vibrant, more balanced and beaming.”

Vincent Van Gogh

The challenge this Groundhog day is vibrant. Sadly I have searched the archives and do not have a picture of a vibrant groundhog.

I do, however, have a vibrant creature…
