It’s not hard to find someone to mend a shirt or sew a button on in India –  I loved all the craftsmen plying their trade in the open.

Old and New in New York   2 comments

I like the juxtaposition of old and new in New York. Here is the beaux-art facade of Grand Central Terminal from 1913 in front of the MetLife Building, built 50 years later in the International Style.

GCT Sculpture

By the way, the statue is called ‘Transportation’, weighs 1500 tons, is 48 feet (16m) high, took 7 years to build, and the Tiffany clock has a diameter of 13 feet (4m)!

Forest Fire Aftermath   Leave a comment

Hundreds of acres of forest in Yellowstone Park were destroyed in massive fires in 1988, requiring over 9,000 firefighters and affecting almost 800,000 acres of forest (bigger than Rhode Island). The remnants of that destruction can still be seen:

Close Encounter with a Bison   Leave a comment

On a recent trip to Yellowstone, I saw this bison and took these photos while I followed it for an hour as it crossed Lamar valley, chomping on grass while generally ignoring me. He must have known he had nothing to fear from me. Figures, since he’s the largest land animal in North America, weighing roughly a ton.

Frozen Beach   1 comment

I got a taste of what it must feel like to cross the Arctic ice when I walked across the frozen bay of our little town beach (for 2 minutes). The tides caused much of the ice to break in unusual formations, as seen in the second picture.
