16-03-15 The Ides Of March

Who is it in the press that calls on me?
I hear a tongue, shriller than all the music,
Cry ‘Caesar!’ Speak; Caesar is turn’d to hear.
Beware the ides of March.
What man is that?
A soothsayer bids you beware the ides of March.
Set him before me; let me see his face.
Fellow, come from the throng; look upon Caesar.
What say’st thou to me now? speak once again.
Beware the ides of March.
He is a dreamer; let us leave him: pass.

A perfect sky for this day…


16-01-06 The Suburbs

In the suburbs I
I learned to drive
And you told me we’d never survive
Grab your mother’s keys we’re leavin’

Arcade Fire



Kids wanna be so hard
But in my dreams we’re still screamin’ and runnin’ through the yard
And all of the walls that they built in the seventies finally fall
And all of the houses they build in the seventies finally fall
Meant nothin’ at all
Meant nothin’ at all
It meant nothin

Arcade Fire


12-3-13 Traveling Down The Theme Sky-2

The sky was on fire
When I walked to the mill
To take up the slack in the line
I thought of my friends
And the troubles they’ve had
To keep me from thinking of mine

Don’t let us get sick
Don’t let us get old
Don’t let us get stupid, all right?
Just make us be brave
And make us play nice
And let us be together tonight

Warren Zevon

Ailsa choose sky.

You didn’t think I could let sky go with only one shot, did you?

A different view of the Saugerties‘ sunset then I have shown before…

11-18-13 Spring HDR Phone Urge Go

I get the urge for going
But I never seem to go
I get the urge for going
When the meadow grass is turning brown
Summertime is falling down and winter is closing in

Joni Mitchell

Even though we are on our third day of 60 degree plus weather the Winter Solstice is only 33 days away and this song has been appearing in my mental playlist more and more frequently.

The sky has been spring beautiful for the most part these last few days and the Pro HDR app on my phone called to me and I answered.

6-25-12 The River The Sky The Art

Spring returned with a vengeance today. Windy, wet, and lukewarm. Seemed a good day to go river walking. Great sky, great new river art (about 20 new pieces) and the river, as always, was its disreputably majestic self.

Not often you see both eyes…
