Textured Layers

While gliding on the resort launch on our way to the Magic Kingdom, my eye was initially drawn to the brilliant, white puffy clouds hovering against a perfect sky-blue sky, as the monorail zoomed across the spanse. I snapped this Photo. It wasn’t until hours later, when I scanned my images, that I realized I’d […]

Freeze-frame

I hadn’t thought on that for many years, Until one summer day, we stood to wait at Main Street Station, for the Disney train […]

Suddenly and unexpectedly, the events of that morning more than fifteen years ago engulfed my consciousness. […]

Architextures

Today I present a sampling of recent travel photos, showcasing a broad array of architectural styles and textures; including the rustic, turn-of-the-century wood details of  Mohonk Mountain House, the glass and steel panoramic reflections of the Manhatten skyline, and the Pantheonic architecture of the “City of Brotherly Love”. All styles are as different from each […]

Rare

Rare: Splurging on a special dinner at “Victoria and Albert”. Rarer: Impeccably skillful presentation of our “Colgin 2003“, transported all the way from our NJ wine rack, where it had rested peacefully for over a decade (well worth the corkage fee)! Rarer Still: Table-side coffee service – “Cona” process, brewed slowly, gently, and aromatically, as […]
