Serenity in DC   1 comment

I know that title is an oxymoron, given what is going on in this city these days, but it didn’t seem to bother these two as they enjoyed a quiet Friday evening sunset over the Lincoln Memorial.

Morning/Evening Flares   2 comments

Captured the morning flare in DC and I thought I would contrast it with a photo I shot in CT a few months ago.

Blue Heron, Walking   8 comments

Came across this poem by Julie Bruck in a recent edition of the New Yorker, which matched the photos I took just the day before:

 

Not one of Mr. Balanchine’s soloists had feet this articulate,
the long bones explicitly spread, then retracted,
even more finely detailed than Leonardo’s plans for his flying machines.
And all this for a stroll, a secondary function,
not the greatdramatic spread and shadow of those pterodactyl wings.
This walking seems determined less by bird volition or
calculations of the small yellow eye
than by an accident of breeze, pushing the bird on a diagonal,
the great feet executing their tendus and lifts in the slowest of increments,
hesitation made exquisitely dimensional,
as if the feet thought themselves through each minute contribution to propulsion,
these outsized apprehenders of grasses and stone, snatchers of mouse and vole,
these mindless magnificents that any time now
will trail their risen bird like useless bits of leather.
Don’t show me your soul, Balanchine used to say, I want to see your foot.

I spy a few herons   1 comment

Spotted a few herons that, uncharacteristically, sat in a tree (do you see them in the first picture?) rather than stalking their prey in the muddy marsh below.

Fortunately they stayed there until I got close enough to take these shots:

Old-fashioned Gas Station   2 comments

This gas station sits at the outskirts of our little town, and doesn’t seem to get much traffic, but it keeps hanging in there, off the beaten path and not far from large-brand gas stations.

The sunset behind our house lit up this field of clover beautifully. A reflector helped me get the great lighting on the second shot.

Stranded at Low Tide   Leave a comment

This boat drifted out of the shipping lane into our local harbor, and got stranded. It laid there for several hours before the tide was high enough again for it to straighten out and continue its journey.

Long Island Sound at sunset, as viewed from our local beach. And if you haven’t seen ‘Dead Calm’ – I highly recommend this little claustrophobic thriller about a couple on a boat taking on a shipwrecked stranger.
