taking it personally


last 
Friday
 walking across East 4th Street 
I stopped 
and 
looked
 back
 then
 up
 you never know where a water tower might be
 no water tower 
but
 this
 'grafitti' 
that made me 
grin
 stand straighter 
and 
take a photo
 of it 
of course

 I'll take 
affirmation 
wherever 
I find it

  its Thursday night
 tomorrow
 (or today or even yesterday who knows when you'll read this) 
I am relaxed
 I am hoping
 the photo adventure muse
 strikes 
soon

 I've no real plans for the next to last Fridayation of 2012 
big sigh
 I am toying
 with a ride
 on the 
Staten Island Ferry
 because 
I havent been on it 
since
 I was a kid

 I hear
 they no longer have
 galley slaves
 oaring the boat

  On that note

 have a blog fodder filled weekend 
or 
just go out and have fun

  1. Galley slaves, you funny ole gal!
    Reminds me: Phyllis Diller's obit made me cry AND laugh. 12 punchlines a minute! Wow.

    Affirmation and posture: you GO Dar! Straight to the ferry and get us some big water, big sky, big city shots. Otherwise, whatya gonna do? Lay around watching old B&W TCM movies? Then you'd be me minus the scooter run to wholefoods. . .
    so you'll relax. what could be bad?

  6. A big yes to the ferry! A nice little trip and some great photo opportunities, from the ferry, to the people, to the sights, including the Lady. You go girl!!

  7. Since I'm in a subway sort of mood today, I'll suggest that you someday take that ride to either Rockaway or Far Rockaway on the "A" train. You'll get some very cool shots as the train wends its way over Jamaica Bay!
