Friday Fotos (from NYC): From the bridge, and from my window

I spent my last morning in New York City building crossing bridges. Well, one bridge, anyway…it connects Brooklyn and Manhattan.

This is the Manhattan Bridge, as seen from the bridge I was actually standing on.

Jill and Teresa were my companions for a walk across this bridge.

I’m sure you know which bridge it is…
Meanwhile, down at the Brooklyn end of the Brooklyn Bridge, someone was keeping their bicycle warm and cozy.

For the week preceding that walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, I was staying in a hotel room with a view overlooking 34th Street, just across the street from Penn Station. And this is what I saw any time I looked out the window:

Therefore, “Sundays don’t count” in keeping a Lenten vow. So said my mom.) This year had been a […]

Welcome to SnowCal!

Welcome to SnowCal!

We’ve actually had something that passes for winter in Southern California this year…and this past weekend, we got SNOW! Well, we didn’t here in my town, but they did over in the San Fernando Valley. Actually, there are places not too far north of Los Angeles – but at rather higher elevation – that get snow pretty regularly. This photo was taken at Fraser Park a few winters ago.  Hey, in just a few more […]
