“Now you’re telling me
You’re not nostalgic
Then give me another word for it
You who are so good with words
And at keeping things vague”
Joan Baez

The Theme: Nostalgia

First attempt: 16-10-02 WPC- Nostalgia_Hippie Edition

Moving into the mid 70’s now. A double exposure I took last month as a thought or possible draft for “Trans_Lucent.”
I don’t think it is right for that, but I do think it is right for this.

16-10-02 WPC- Nostalgia_Hippie Edition

This week’s challenge is nostalgia.  In my experience, once you are past about age 8 the choices are limitless. I was photographing some third grade students the other day and one said to another: “Remember when we were little kids we used to…”

I went to Yonkers last week to revisit the Glenwood Power Station. The construction/destruction of this most beautiful ruin seems to have slowed or stopped. The visit was nostalgic as it is one of the first places outside of NYC proper I visited when I first started The Quotidian Hudson. Along with the Little Red Lighthouse it truly has my heart.

After visiting it I was walking the Yonkers waterfront and came across the subject of today’s photo.  It brought back 1968 with a vengeance…
