15-07-13 Weekly Photo Challenge – Symbol (Of The Past)

So if you’re down on your luck
I know you all sympathize
Find a girl with far away eyes
And if you’re downright disgusted
And life ain’t worth a dime
Get a girl with far away eyes

Richards/Jagger

The weekly Photo Challenge is Symbol. I had actually prepared this for last week’s challenge which was door but didn’t use it. So this becomes a symbol of two meanings – one is the past – the other is all that a door can symbolize… I will not interfere with your thought on that.

15-05-30 Weekly Photo Challenge: On The Way (Up Against The Wall Edition)

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way,
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.

J.R.R. Tolkien

I was walking through Red Hook as a TA on an ICP Borough Walk and ran into this. Wedding Photo or Al Capone?

15-01-31 Weekly Travel Photo Theme Challenge – The Depth Of Doorways

11-25-14 A Sign Of Red Hook

This may be my favorite sign in the city.

Seen on a bridge over the Gowanus Canal (back in the past referred to as Lavender Lake due to its pungent smell, now apparently supposed to become the Venice of Brooklyn.)

10-18-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Re-Refraction

The Challenge is here.

Yesterday’s attempt.

I once again borrow Melanie Neilson‘s words to express a feeling:

Verse 8 of

“Bird Coming Through A Super Doorway: The Doris Touch”

Now see what good turns mirrors for reflection have done:
Delights to peep, gaze therein on screwball heroines, screwball heroes
In cave, temple, destroyed boudoir, where-through the sun, endlessly
True and false, light and sound are found. Loving form,
Doris fulfills her intention to make poetry vital in her time
Fierce faith therein, multiple readings do show her art evergreen.
