16-04-08 WPC – Future

There is no present or future; only the past, happening over and over again now.”

2-26-13 Weekly Photo Challenge: Forward (Rockwell Edition)

“If you cry ”Forward” you must be sure to make clear the direction in which to go.

Don’t you see that if you fail to do that and simply call out the word to a monk and a revolutionary, they will go in precisely opposite directions?”

Anton Chekhov

This week’s Photo Challenge is: Forward. 

I took this image on 7/4/09 just before the Wellfleet, MA 4th of July parade began. This is from my (very) brief Norman Rockwell period. It lasted about 12 hours.

5/25/12 Tidal Flats

“Out there was the gray beach with the slow combers rolling dull and leaden and the distant sound of it. Like the desolation of some alien sea breaking on the shores of a world unheard of. Out on the tidal flats lay a tanker half careened. Beyond that the ocean vast and cold and shifting heavily like a slowly heaving vat of slag and then the gray squall line of ash. He looked at the boy. He could see the disappointment in his face. I’m sorry it’s not blue, he said. That’s okay, said the boy.”

7-11-11 Roll Dem Bones

3 months ago today

A fun and silly day today. Went and had lunch at The Beachcomber and then went down to the beach, Cahoon Hollow.

While Katherine and the girls body surfed I was shooting. A thin guy with long hair came over to me and asked about my telephoto lens.  We chatted about that and the Cape (he had never been). Turned out he was Nash Kato, singer and guitarist of Urge Overkill who were playing the Beachcomber that night. They have just released a new CD, Rock & Roll Submarine and are on a short tour, had 2 days off and rather than spend it in a Boston hotel had gotten booked at the Beachcomber so they could sun and sand and play.

Nash is the one standing…

Later we went to Duck Pond again…

My foot with tadpole

Back to the house to shower and change, dinner at a fine local establishment, mini-golf, then dropped the girls back at the house and Katherine and I went to the ‘coma (Beachcomber for those not from Massachusetts) to see Urge Overkill play. Grabbed a few beers, a t-shirt and the CD and home again.

7-10-11 The Boat The Pond The Drive-In

April 4th Looking back at NJ

The girls stayed awake until at least 3:30 when my mother woke up and kicked them into bed so we got a late start on the day. Still crammed a lot in.  Went walking on the tidal flats, rented a boat and let the girls drive in the bay, went to Duck Pond, a kettle pond formed by glaciers over a few years ago, grilled outside and then hit the Drive-in to see Transformers 3.  Katherine and I sat outside and left the girls in the car, That way we could look at the stars and the moon and not the complete ridonk Hi Rebekah! going on on screen. I assume that Leonard NimoyFrances McDormand, and John Malkovich owed Bay or Speilberg a favor or their kids asked them to do it…

ok, I can’t figure how to pull the NJ pic from the slideshow. my apologies, and I don’t have enough connectivity to fight it…
