RUBY TUESDAY - SEEING RED, AS IN ANGER

Currently, I am the innocent victim, along with my friends, family and next-of-kin, of a money-making scam that could, and can happen to anyone, who uses the emailing and internet systems.

We are all led to believe that the companies offering their services are covering their asses (and ours) against fraudulent hijackers, but, alas, even with the great resources at their disposal they, too, become victims, as the smaller Madoff creeps find ways to trick their way to wealth.

These companies do their best, relying on us, the users, to do our best, to remember the do's and dont's of avoiding the pickle in which I find myself today. Stay tuned, as my story unfolds, as every effort is being made to thwart the creeps who are perpetrating this particular scam.

To Daryl and friends, I would love to reply to comments personally, but my ability to do so has been blocked!

MONOCHROME MONDAY


One wonders what it is like to be inside looking out - this building dominates Cooper Square, reflecting its neighbors sometimes partially, sometimes totally, as seen below. It depends on how one approaches it. Cooper Square intersects with 7th Ave, 4th Ave and Astor Place in New York.




The neighborhood seems destined to attract modernist architectural design disasters, including Cooper Union's own new building behind this one. (Cooper Union is one of the nation's oldest institutions, dedicated to preparing students for the professions of the arts and architecture).


Go to Monochrome Weekly Theme to participate in this challenging meme.

SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY







Add Image




















I recently acquired this handsome pot made by Irene Gillman, of NY. That is horse hair embedded into the clay.











Go to SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY for some more stimulating photographs!

SKY WATCH FRIDAY - AS REFLECTED


BLINDED BY THE SUN
(no, that isn't the sun)
I PUT IT BEHIND ME
(I think it's a cloud)
AND SHOT ANYWAY
(reflections an' all)
ONLY TO FIND THAT

I HAD INCLUDED MYSELF!

An expressionist gesture

creating lots of colourful rhythms - to replace the status quo below



Looking out of the kitchen window - an idea for a painting - on the back burner!

LIVE ARCHIVES - PHOTOS AND VIDEOS

About Me

My photo
JANUS - looking backwards and forwards is a Janus trait - for me a way to record the "in between thought", whether in retrospect, or as a notion for the future. I make original prints, currently etchings. I sometimes write and take photographs. I am inspired by what I see and read. Although postings are chronologically recorded by date and time in this protocol, the images exhibited, often seen in different stages of production, are from another time. So, with each new posting, earlier postings can undergo revision or amplification as will be noted, or requested. The addition of a SNAPSHOTS Blog and a VIRGINIA WOOLF Blog are included because my different interests tend to influence what I do as an artist. There will be a Family Blog, too, for the same reason.
