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.”

J.R.R. Tolkien

16-01-08 Weekly Challenge: Weight(Less)

And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
    And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon’s that is dreaming,
    And the lamp-light o’er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
            Shall be lifted—nevermore!
Edgar Allan Poe
This week’s challenge is Weight(less)

15-06-05 Weekly Photo Challenge: Vivid (Kahlo Edition)

And your mind is reeling as the sky is changing
All you’re feeling and you’re re-arranging
The rest of your life like lines on an old sailor’s chart

You climb back in, fire the ignition
Put your hands on the wheel, head into the distance
The distance between the daylight and the dark

Mary Gauthier, Fred Eaglesmith

1-29-14 A Wooden Juxtaposition

“I clearly saw the skeleton underneath
all this show of personality
what is left of a man
and all his pride but bones?”

Jack Kerouac

Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week is wood. The Weekly Photo Challenge is juxtaposition. I thought I should juxtapose my second attempts. My first attempt at the Travel theme is here. My first attempt at the Photo Challenge is there.

4-5-13- Weekly Photo Challenge: Color

You damn right, I’ve got the blues,
From my head down to my shoes
You damn right, I’ve got the blues,
From my head down to my shoes

I can’t win, cause I don’t have a thing to lose

Buddy Guy

This week’s photo challenge is color. I think I will play several times this week but today I went down to South Ferry and walked up through Battery Park as it was the first almost spring like day.

8-17-12 Last Day On The Cape (Sad Face)

Today was my last day in Wellfleet. I needed to get home for an appointment and Abigail was just ready to be back in NYC. Luckily Katherine has another day and may finally get to play.
Before leaving I took a last kayak with our friend Anne.
