ala Stieglitz "Equivalents"

I'm taking the holiday weekend off from posting the "Underfoot" series. This has nothing to do with anything. "Equivalents is was Stieglitz called his cloud pictures.

About as Minimal as I Get

We went to see the Reading Phillies (AAA baseball) last night. This is the sidewalk by the handicapped parking, which I was really glad to be able to use but sorry I had to do so.

My concept of migraine colours. Way easier to explain a migraine this way. They occasionally make an entrance but I never forget their visit. Not sure when I will next post ... off to Vietnam for few weeks.


Life.. isn't it as simple as it is complex?
The plant is grown in the balcony of the second floor apartment. The bokeh behind is from some compact disks my neighbor has hung, to scare off the doves...

"Underfoot" day 10, #19 and #20

#19, Sidewalk Repair, Callowhill Street, Philadelphia, PA
#20, My foot, Callowhill Street, Philadelphia, PA

Those of you who have been playing the home game have probably noticed that about a third of these pictures were shot somewhere on Callowhill Street in Philadelphia. The reason for that is simply that my daughter lives in the...
