Gives me the option of creating unique individual pieces of
Photo Art

A Walk by the Creek

With all this color exploding all over the place and with Spring seemingly holding off as long as possible I was feeling a little Black and White.

Windows Live Photo Gallery is really a simple program to facilitatate getting organized an to make some adjustments. I cant say after a few minutes I would be able to do any better with these black and whites in Photoshop Elements...hmmmm could be a nice experiment. 
C'mon SPRING...we are  all ROOTING for you.

Great Day in Philadelphia

Perfect day to get into Philadelphia on Wednesday. 
 We saw beautiful wall murals before we even parked the car.
If you ever go to Sabrina's go with a BIG appetite.

It was close enough to the Rodin that we walked on over passing the new Barnes on the way.

Our docent/guide was excellent and we learned some about the Thinker and the Gates to Hell

The gates are not really gates at all as they are not meant to open but to be displayed.
It is rather large with a lot to look at, so I just focused on some of the parts that I found most interesting.

It was still pretty early in the day when we finished at the Rodin so we walked on to the Museum of Art.  Although we went hoping to see some Stieglitz images, and did, we ended up enjoying the Outsider Art Exhibit a lot more. Get this...they gave us a free headset for this exhibit and it was attached to a GALAXY Cell phone...very intuitive and lots more info.  Really cool feature. 

Here is one of my favorites from that exhibit.

Washington Crossing Visitor Center Opens

After three years of reconstruction the Washington Crossing Visitor Center has now opened to the public.  The sun shined on Sunday and there was quite the to do with dignitaries, speeches, ribbon cutting, reanacting soldiers and their weapons.  Those in costume were well educated on their personas and you could have a nice chat with them and learn something new.  There was a good turn out and it made us feel proud to be part of this community

Black and White for a Change

This looked like it should be black and white so I made it so.
This looks like it is black and white...but it is just the way the light hit it on Friday when it was still snowing

An Egg and a Star

i made some eggs i did not scramble
and made some stars so i could ramble
the month of march has two big days
easter and passover if you follow the craze

an egg for easter the bunny cannot lay
a symbol of life for a better day
it sits on the plate on the seder table
a reminder of spring and how we are able

to defy the angels with blood on a doorway
survive the darkness for just one more day
enjoy one last supper raise up from the dead
cant make that S up its what the good book said
what makes this night different from all other nights
why should we eat matza rather than deli delight
to remind us of slavery and the freedom fight
to remind us of wrong and encourage whats right

He Let Me Pose Him

I walked in the room and there he was in the light, almost just like that.  
 Had to lift the cap just a bit so I could see his eye. 
I like this one Aaron, a you?

I'm In a New York State of Mind.


Keeping with a red theme I added a little color
should those in the know be wondering if that building
was blushing

Breaky first.

Even waiting in line was fun.

It was a show about friends and I was invited by one of mine.

I think it will air March 7th but we were in the last row and probably wont be making an appearance.

Katie C was very real and nice.
