Sip N' Soda

I made this image back in 2002 at the luncheonette in the village. The repetition of the stools and the man's legs interested me. I also liked the northern light filtering in the big windows. It is a selenium toned print. Memorial day was a busy one this year, six parades, two that we marched in and four that we stopped at to pay our respects to our veterans. I'll put together a slideshow in the next day or two for the town.

This is the second time I've come across gum 
used as street art. 
This was in Patchogue.

Hidden jewels

One does not have to travel far to find God's beauty.

If you have a moment, check out the slide show, not so much my photos but the Albany Avenue Chorus.

Summer Leaves

a walk 
into the unknown
a forest
step slowly

Goldfinch at the feeder

A few weeks ago, during my visit to Seatuck Environmental I saw a birdfeeder  with five or six Goldfinches enjoying breakfast.  My wife expressed a desire for a birdfeeder for Mother's Day. So, I got her and early gift of a Njier seed feeder and a bag of seed. Well it took almost two weeks before the first Goldfinch appeared, but they seem to be fairly regular now.

Barre, Vermont

A view of the mountains from the parking lot of the Hilltop Motel. Really the motel name comes from the lumpy bed and hard pillow. Traveling home today with our new graduate.
A happy and blessed mother's day to all!

I've been painting the ceiling in the kitchen, dining and living room. The ceiling paint doesn't spread the same brand wall paint I used for the walls. I was so impressed with the smoothness of the paint, how well it covered.
I saw this tree in Lindenhurst the other night. I thought about love... it should spread... maybe like the paint.

I was listening to our local radio station, WPPB.FM Southampton, dj Bonnie Grice was talking about getting out doors and experiencing nature. She believes there's a direct connection between  Attention Deficit Disorder and NDD...Nature Deficit Disorder.
I don't know about that, but I will agree once you get out into nature you will most definitely increase your attention.

Spring Morning

After seeing the tags the class left in the nature sanctuary, Davis asked me what would I write....
Love your fellow man and mother earth
and thank God daily.
