softly ...


yup 
it wasnt in focus

nevertheless
 i really like this composition

in the garden


earth day 
was this past friday

a day that was incredibly 
overcast
 dreary 
rainy

i was uptown
decided
 a walk was in order

a friend told me about 
the community garden
in 
the middle of the block
between
 90-91 streets
between
 amsterdam and columbus


hundreds 
maybe 
thousands
 of 
tulip bulbs planted

blooming now

so many varieties
so many colors



too bad
 the rain 
knocked 
a lot of petals off

i wasnt the only one taking photos



the drive home


i took this
 out the window 
of
 the taxi
 we took home wednesday

there was all this green 

once
naked tree limbs 
now 
small green buds

riverside park is looking very spring-like

wowza


i see lots of sunset photos on instagram
personally 
i am 
way too lazy 
to go out 
to 
get
 a sunset shot

i get home 
i get into my pjs
i do not go out

but
over the last few months 
toonman hasnt been feeling great

i have been doing 
a lot of stuff 
he always did

truth be told
i had no idea 
he did so much
or 
more
 to the point
that
 i was so spoiled
did so little

anyway
monday night 
i schlepped
 the trash cans to the curb
looked around 
the sunset was incredible
went back in
got the phone
went back out 
got that shot

now i 'get' why people go sunset shooting



squint, you'll see it


the iphone pro camera app in hdr setting is very sensitive

i really thought 
was 
standing
perfectly
still

the blurs in this shot belie that
oh well

nevertheless
nestled 
between 
the branches of that blossoming tree 
and the top of the WTC 
is 
a
water tower!


perfectly purple


this past weekend
 i spent saturday 
on/in 
'me' day
massage
facial
wash/blow dry
mani/pedi

a lovely time
just me myself and i
indulging

i get off the crosstown bus on 79th
 just past fifth avenue
the walk along east 79th
 is lined with grand old mansions
some filled with art galleries
but 
this one 
with 

massive display of flowers
is the greek embassy

interesting to me
is the fact that
the greek people are having financial issues

these floral displays
seem wrong

poetry in motion


For oft, when on my couch I lie 
In vacant or in pensive mood, 
They flash upon that inward eye 
Which is the bliss of solitude; 
And then my heart with pleasure fills, 
And dances with the daffodils.
