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

4-19-13 Weekly Photo Challenge: Up

Okay, can we establish that, for those of us who live in the United States, this has been a damn crazy week?

Now that we have that out of the way, I will introduce you to The Photo Challenge for this week which is up. There are 11 definitions in Merriam-Webster so I may very well be re-upping with this theme. Today, however I am going to bring you up to speed on definition # 1.  Because it has been a crazy week, I changed up my usual habits and worked up this shot.  I feel like I used up every filter I have access to before I made up my mind. Fed up, yet?


As always, because I like my readers to shake up their blog reading, here are other examples of the theme.
