1-25-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition

Well, I know, after all, it is only juxtaposition,
Juxtaposition, in short; and what is juxtaposition?

Arthur Hugh Clough

The challenge this week is juxtaposition. Yesterday while playing in the lighting studio I took this picture. I had no idea what the photo challenge was but I wanted to juxtapose something old with something new. When I saw the challenge I knew I had to post this even though I don’t think I caught it as well as I might have.

12-10-12 (pt 1) The Fog & The Hudson River Cat

Today is mainly about the beast. Part 2 will be about the fog.

It was a truly foggy day yesterday. I went out at 11 and headed for the George Washington Bridge because I thought the river would look romantic and/or spooky from that height through the fog. HA! (Tune in tomorrow for pictures of the white out.)

Then I headed down to 125th Street because I thought it couldn’t be as bad at ground level. While walking on the deserted bike path and looking towards the river I saw my first living creature since I left the environs of Fairway.

Last spring, the cat had a Calico companion. I don’t know if she was in hiding or the street got her.

1-23-12 Gee, But Its Great To Be Back Home

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.  ~Buddha

Today was fun. I needed to go downtown so I took the river walk. I hadn’t been all the way down to the water for almost 5 days and it felt wonderful. Settles me right down. 

The only downside?  I have been averaging 15-20 shots a day. Today I took 111. It is extremely difficult to choose the contenders for the blog and then “work” them and then select just one picture in under a day (at least it is if you have any life at all and are not getting paid to do it!)…

So I didn’t…Choose that is…

“Time, time, time, see what’s become of me
While I looked around
For my possibilities
I was so hard to please
But look around, leaves are brown
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter” – Paul Simon

Of course to get to the river I first have to go through Riverside Park…

Lots of animals by the river today…I am sure there would have been more except for this one.

Clay Court Cat

Lots of beasts on and above the river too…

“Hang on to your hopes, my friend
That’s an easy thing to say, but if your hope should pass away
It’s simply pretend
That you can build them again”
