17-03-02 The Last Time Ever I Saw

Our best friends are moving out of their gorgeous Riverside Drive apartment (to another beautiful apartment further uptown). They asked me to come by and shoot it for the memory files which I did 20 minutes ago. Those pics are for them but, they also have a spectacular view of the Hudson River. I’m heading out of town in 20 minutes so did not have a lot of time to work on anything but here is one pic from a 60 mph, 50 degree day.

“Well, here at last, dear friends, on the shores of the Sea comes the end of our fellowship in Middle-earth. Go in peace! I will not say: do not weep; for not all tears are an evil.”

J.R.R. Tolkien

15-04-25 Weekly Photo Challenge: Motion #2

We embody the spirit of motion.
We’re bodies in motion. We’re bodies in motion.

We dig down in the ocean. Swing up to the stars.
We own the moon and the earth. We’re masters of Mars.
We’re bodies in motion. We embody the spirit of motion.

Our ancestors cowered in caves
Afraid of the dark and the thunder.
Wrapped tip in black magic and rage
They were slaves to their hunger.
Now we fly across mountains in planes
We know aII about time and big numbers.
We’re bodies in motion.
We embody the spirit of motion.

Laurie Anderson

15-04-23 The Glorious Colors Of Spring

“Summer makes me drowsy,
Autumn makes me sing,
Winter’s pretty lousy,
but I hate Spring.”
–  Dorothy Parker

It was such a beautiful day and evening here in New York, so utterly spring like. As I type this “weather.com” tells me the temperature is a balmy 44 degrees heading for 38, so good for the flowers.

The forecast says it will rocket up to 50 degrees F (that is 10 Celsius for the rest of the world and 283.15 Kelvin for you nerd photogs out there…) on Friday.

Without further ado I give you SPRING!
