Living in downtown NYC, and Long Island NYS

Thursday, June 11, 2009


Leaving Long Beach last Sunday, a silvery moon in the east, as the train crossed the Bay to Island Park

(My friend, Brenda, was inspired to write a poem for this photograph.  See LILAC LULLABY)

Then heading west for New York City, into the sunset 

Reflections, too, and alarmingly, a warped looking railway line!     So many revelations in a photograph, seen after the fact.  No doubt, a bent window effect!

The journey is uneventful, except for the splendour of the evening sky, and the photo below, enlarged, shows NYC skyscrapers on the horizon. 

That is my SKYWATCH for this week, Silvia and company


  1. Lovely shots. When I look at the 'lilac' sunset I feel a poem coming on! Ouch! I told you I was easily triggered didn't I!

  2. These are gorgeous shots! I'm so glad I was finally able to see them! The colors are truly lovely, fragile and breathtaking.

    Thanks for the email! I had tried to access your site through Mr. Linky but couldn't. Glad you found out what the problem was!

  3. Very beautiful and gentle skywatch shots.

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.
