7-23-13 Teaser Tuesday Plus…

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Now I fully intend to do so but as someone pointed out to me (that would be me) this is a photography blog and so needs photographs. So before we get to my tease (ain’t I a tease), two  pictures of a new resident of the Hudson River community who is living between Pier 54 and Pier 57 (W 14th to W 15th Streets). This choice was inspired by the two sentences I already randomly picked.

7-12-13 Travel Theme: Simplicity

Ailsa over at Where’s my backpack chose the theme: Simplicity this week. Here are three views of simplicity from 6/29/13.

What can be simpler? Wind, gravity, earth, and water

Man Made: A metal fence to keep us out.

Of what?

A book, a bridge, a bench, a young reader

7-9-13 Teaser Tuesday (New Meme For Me)

Thought I would take a shot at a new weekly challenge.

Why?

Just because.

I heard about this through TBM at 50 Year Project. Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play. Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

3-6-13 Phoneography Two

Phoneography (link).

As discussed yesterday, WordPress has declared March to be phoneography month so  I figured in for a penny, in for a pound.  I took these shots with my iPhone on the 1 train and worked in Snapseed.

An old fashioned Kindle/Nook

I don’t often do self-portraits but when the train is being held in the tunnel for an interminable amount of time and your book is not grabbing you; you play.
