Banks And Birds

sunlight glints on the Hudson River and two sea gulls

These are the kind of banks I like--banks of the mighty Hudson River.

Bird Bath

Be careful, when parking under trees. Things could have been worse...this could have been MY car. ;]

Please, could you go to this site and make witty comments on the photo there? It's a photo of a bird with some alligators. I'm sure you can come up with something funny.

Sunset Incident

sunset light at incident angle to the camera, Hudson River, Manhattan, NYC

From the banks of the mighty Hudson River, late afternoon light reflects off buildings of lower Manhattan at an incident angle to the camera.

EXTRA: I looked at last November's photos (2007) and found an interesting one from Kasaan Bay, Alaska to compare to the one for today. Oh, if you click the link, once there, you will need to scroll for the sunset photo. Yes, you will recognize it.

Van Back

So, I caught this horrible cold a few days ago and finally resorted to using the Robitussin®. Hey, the stuff works pretty well. Anyway, I sort of forgot about posting here for a couple days. Getting sick sucks!

Obama Wins!

the little man's Times Square view of Barack Obama's election victory

The little man walked in Times Square Tuesday night to find out that Barack Obama has become our President-Elect. Thousands of people cheered the large screen. The most unlikely of candidates has won the election and shown the best of the United States of America. Hope has beaten fear, ability beat cynicism, and we are all the better for it.

On November 1st, Weeki Wachee Springs became a Florida state park. Here, Tommy Ervin, inaugural park manager, and two current mermaids take part in a weekend jazz fest held at the park.

I wish Mr. Ervin all the best in his future efforts and look forward to visiting Weeki Wachee for decades to come.
