A Horse of Another Color

I am really getting a kick out of what can be done in post processing. 
The options seem only limited by your imagination. 
This Merry Equine is heading for the farm.

Delaware Muse about a Magnificent Morning

It was cool and crisp.  The sky was clear and blue making it a magnificent morning to pull my   bicycle out of the garage.  What a lovely way to move through the cool morning.  Everyone was wearing looooooooooooooooooong shadows.

Delaware Cruise to the Warren County Fair

 
Took a nice long ride yesterday, sitting on the back of the motorcycle.  We drove from Bucks, to Mercer, went straight through Hunterdon County, and finally stopping at the Warren County State Fair.  We passed a lot of farm land and many a sign for sale.  Made me wonder how much longer New Jersey will be the Garden State.  I asked myself this question, "Is the American farm becoming antiquated?"  Or was I just imaging things.

Delaware Views That Bring Me Joy

Most of the time the sun comes up
shedding its awesome bright white, light that glistens and sparkles
and bounces from the ripples made by the current as the river runs to the bay.
Then there are the times that the sky presents a colorful show
forcing me to leave  my comfy couch, put down my coffee and grab the camera.
 
 
 
A new dawn brings a day of play.

 
Love my River

Delaware Chews at Buddies in Lambertville, NJ

Something about getting up early and heading out on the motorcycle for breakfast gives me great pleasure.  Meeting up with some friends makes it even better.  Not a morsel was left on any of the four plates.  My fresh fruit topped waffle was YUMMY. Looked so good, I dug right in before even THINKING about taking a photo.  Outside seating was available but it was one of those really hot and humid, NJ days even early in the morning...so it was fine to be inside with A/C on.

And It Stoned Me to My Soul

It is amazing to see emotions like these in STONE.
 
 
 
Not stone but still amazing.

MORE at the MET


 
It was nice to spend a day with my sister in such a wonderful atmosphere. 
The only place that pictures were prohibited was at the special exhibits.
Walking into the  PUNK exhibit I missed the no photos sign: REALLY!
It was a bit crowded and this was the first thing  my eyes registered.
 
heheheh.. You just never know what you will see in a museum in NYC.

Delaware Chews at Nocello, NYC

Walked in without reservations and managed to get an excellent little table for two and a wonderful Italian dinner at Nocello, 257 W 55th.  A giant chunk of hearty bread came to the table and for starters we shared the Clams Oreganato, 6 on the plate.  We both ordered the Shrimp Scampi which might have been the best I ever had.  There was some flavor that I could not put my finger on but it was DELICIOUS.  Service very nice and we were never rushed in fact we had to ask for our bill, which was just shy of $90 with tip.  Oh, I did have a glass of wine.

I LOVE NEW YORK

Had a fun time in NYC with my little big sister.
It was so hot that we did most of our walking around inside
at the Museum of the City of New York and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Squeezed in a little Broadway Motown too.

Be Selective

When I wrote those two words "Be Selective" I had one thing in mind, Selective Color in CS3.  As I thought about it, I realized I should be a little more selective about so many things.

Stay Cool

Calling for another heat wave.  Ice cream or in this case Gelato works just fine for me.

The UHH Photo Palooza in Denver was an excellent experience for getting to know some really neat people and also for learning.  I learned how to MASK...in CS3

This is my first solo attempt at making a mask using two images and layers....

Delaware Chews at Caffe Galleria Lambertville

If you are walking around in Lambertville and find yourself hungry and you have not planned ahead, walk on over to Walkers on Bridge Street or Welsh's on South Union and grab yourself a bottle of wine before heading north on Union to the Caffe Galleria for dinner and dessert.  The new location for this restaurant boasts an airy spacious dining atmosphere a block from the center of town.  My companion and I each ordered a salad and shared clams over linguini.  The food was decent and portions were perfect and we had just enough room for some Gelato for dessert.  Service was excellent.  I think it  might be nice to return for lunch or dinner and sit on the porch. Yes, I think that might be nice.
