Heiligtum

Shot Of The Day: September 29, 2017





QOTD:
Can you give me sanctuary
I must find a place to hide
A place for me to hide

Can you find me soft asylum
I can’t make it anymore
The man is at the door

— Jim Morrison

Backstory: An old bandmate once said of me – ‘you are only allowed to live on islands.’ I grew up on the west bank of the Maumee River, later I lived in Key West, then Governors Island and finally Staten Island. Is it any wonder I would find the waterfront a sanctuary?

Locale: Clifton

Equipment: Nikon D5500 / Sigma 18~200mm f3.5-6.3 DC

Bourée

Shot Of The Day: September 27, 2017





QOTD: Und soll wie aller Musik also auch des Generalbasses Finis und Endursache anders nicht als nur zu Gottes Ehre und Recreation des Gemütes sein. Wo dieses nicht in acht genommen wird, ists keine eigentliche Musik, sondern ein Teuflisches Geplerr und Geleier.
— Johann Sebastian Bach

Backstory: I’ve been a fan of Bach for a very long time. In my youth I would place the fugues on my Dual 1226 and turn up the volume on my Pioneer (always wanted a Marantz) and test the limits of my JBL speakers. I would light my pipe and sit back and enjoy some truly divine music. So of course, as a flute player and Bach fan, I loved Ian Anderson’s rendition of Bourée. I played it on flute, badly, for a number of years. BTW, I also like painting especially street art. I like dancing too, whether it’s punk style or classical…like the Bourée.

Locale: Stapleton

Equipment: Nikon D5500 / Sigma 18~200mm f3.5-6.3 DC

Smoke And Mirrors


 
Chiefs’ Alex Smith says Donald Trump’s comments on player protests were ‘very alarming’.
Full article (Kansas City Star): Available Here
 
“I’m talking about the comments that were made by the president, targeting the NFL, targeting the quality and character of guys in this league for that very protest. I found that very alarming.
 
It’s the same guy who couldn’t condemn violent neo-Nazis. And he’s condemning guys taking a knee during the anthem.
 
There are bigger issues out there that he probably should be worried about. But for some reason the NFL is on his mind.”
 
— Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith
 
[ Trump’s odd tirades against the NFL are either a sign or symptom of his mental health issues or perhaps a smokescreen. Or both. Kind of like his interminable campaigning against a cardboard cutout of Hillary Clinton…thank god SNL returns this week. — Editor ]

Any Major Dude

Shot Of The Day: September 24, 2017





QOTD:
I can tell you all I know, the where to go, the what to do.
You can try to run but you can’t hide from what’s inside of you.

— Donald Fagen and Walter Becker (RIP)

Backstory: I pass Mr. Cellfie almost every morning – finally got around to capturing a quick portrait. “Mr. Cellfie” is an unwittingly treacherous monicker. I like that in a pun.
