While 42nd Street doesn’t exactly cut Manhattan in half, it was the proverbial divide of the city. Those in the north who were closer to the mainland were convinced that the government’s story was correct, there was nothing to fear, this was only a temporary glitch on the way towards a better world tomorrow. As you … Continued
This is one of my favorite photos from my most recent National Parks Trip – Joshua Tree NP. I also really do like this night shot: That’s really all I have to say, Happy Birthday to me. What say you?
Yes, what to do now? Panic had not ensued yet, though as the day wore on, people were loosing their patience. A storm was on the horizon for January 03, and people didn’t know if it was still coming, or if it had been blown out to sea. By 1pm, the Governor of New York … Continued

Instead of whatever story gets beamed into my mind while I sleep the night before, I will spend the entire year focused on one story. Yes, I tried it in the past, and I sometimes went back to that … Continued
Off to warm and wet California for the week. Actually, just a bit longer than a week. For the next 5 days I’ll be in the San Francisco area for work, then next weekend I’m hitting up my first new National Park of 2017, Joshua Tree. Look forward for some photos of it later next … Continued
