11-28-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Converging (Trio)

“To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.”

Henri Cartier-Bresson

The Weekly Photo Challenge is Converge.

A sunset trio of convergences from Riverbank State Park:

11-3-14 I’m Stooping Again (Weekly Photo Challenge)

And at last here I
Am on the hill overlooking El Paso;
I can see Rosa’s cantina below.
My love is strong and it pushes me onward.
Down off the hill to Felina I go.

Marty Robbins

The Challenge: Descent

The response:

Descent #1

Descent #2

I had decided to leave the challenge alone but as a friend said to me: Damn you like looking down, don’t you. Yup, I do. I like looking up too.

Election Day tomorrow in the States and who knows to what depths we may have descended by Wednesday?

I thought a National Park would be appropriate. Can you see the people descending “The Bright Angel Trail”?

See how the cormorant swoops and dives
Must be some thrill to go that deep
Down to the basement of this life

Before we get to the photo let me just say that the temperature has descended quite a bit in the last 36 hours while the wind speed has ascended.

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.

10-14-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreamy – ICP Borough Walk Edition

Friday night the title of the ICP Borough Walk, led by Angel Franco, was Manhattan Under The Stars. Sadly there were not many stars but midtown, especially Times Square, was jumping. One way or another, no matter the year, there is always something dreamy (or dream-like) going on in Times Square and the surrounding area.

Take a little stroll with me?
