10-12-13 Travel Theme: Deep

“If you always do what interests you, at least one person is pleased.”

Katherine Hepburn 

The Travel Theme put forth by Ailsa over at Where’s my backpack for this week is Deep.  Merriam-Webster has 7 definitions with 14 sub definitions between them so you can go deep into your archives and pull an almost infinite amount of photographs that could reflect the theme.

First I want to go back to Dominica to Boiling Lake. 200 feet deep.

Then I want to revisit the Little Red Lighthouse, deep under the George Washington Bridge and deep with snow.

Finally, as I mentioned, The City Council gave approval to building owner, David Wolkoff, to tear down 5Pointz and replace it with two residential towers. No timetable is in place yet, since lawsuits are still flying. The depth of feeling of a sizable community of New Yorkers about 5Pointz is remarkable. If as I assume, the courts rule in the owners favor, New York will have lost two arts meccas in 2013, The New York City Opera and 5Pointz. There is some deep meaning there, perhaps.

Anyway, here are some images from 5Pointz that I feel reflect deep talent, deep commitment, and deep fun.

Lastly the deep need we all feel to be revealed and noticed. This very nice young man asked me to take his picture. I offered to send him a copy or give him my blog address where it would be posted but he said no. Apparently just the knowledge that he will be on my social media was enough to fulfill that deep need.

Finally a few other folks reaching for the deep.
