6-21-13 Summer Solstice: Weekly Photo Challenge: The World Through Your Eyes

This week’s Photo Challenge: The World Through Your Eyes. I think most of us have made an overwhelming number of photographs that fit that challenge. Choosing is the hard part. So I grabbed 100 summer shots from my favorites file and then waited to see how many emails I would get in the next 4 hours. I used that number to pick the photograph (FYI: 42).

3-25-13 Weekly Photo Challenge: Future Tense #2

It is remarkably quiet in my neighborhood tonight. Some of that is due to the truly lousy weather (although we escaped the snow and just have a really cold rain)  I am sure most of it is due to being the first night of Passover / Pesach. Many of my neighbors are celebrants and the smells in the hallway of all of the food being prepared for the various feast  are wonderful.

I had business in Manhasset today and this storefront caught my eye with its intimations of Future (very) Tense.

Future Tense-1

 

To any who celebrate – a very happy Passover.

Okay…if at first, second, third, fourth, you don’t succeed – in the words of Samuel Beckett “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again, Fail again”

Actually this attempted post is filling both themes don’t you think?  It is taking a massive amount of time and here I am in yesterday’s future still trying .

It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Smiling faces I can see
But not for me
I sit and watch
As tears go by
My riches can’t buy everything
I want to hear the children sing
All I hear is the sound
Of rain falling on the ground
I sit and watch
As tears go by
It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Doin’ things I used to do
They think are new
I sit and watch
As tears go by

I took these shots at Our Lady of Lourdes Cemetery in Wellfleet MA in 2009. It is located on the corner of Rt 6 and Cahoon Hallow Road just across from PJ’s Family Restaurant, should you ever be in the area.
Hey, this (or some variant) is where we all end up the future. We all run out of time.

9-9-12 Another No Drama Sunday – Metropolitan And Park Style

We went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art this afternoon just because. I did want to see “Naked before the Camera” which closed today but really Katherine and I had not been there in some time and walking home across Central Park was going to be beautiful in an early Autumn sort of way (and it was).  Of course, The Met is great for people watching as well as art…It does not allow any flash photography and many of the rooms are dark so you have to shoot at a really high ISO and pretty low-speed, but I like that effect sometimes…

This young woman asked me to take her picture with her camera. Then I asked if I could take her picture with mine…

Forget something?

Then it was time to hit the park.

But first…

“Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’. Keep them doggies rollin'”

Waiting

Just a beautiful day in the ‘hood.
