Emily tries but misunderstands
She’s often inclined to borrow somebody’s dreams till tomorrow
There is no other day
Let’s try it another way

Backstory: This is the French frigate Forbin moored in New York harbour earlier this Fall during a period where we had some remarkable sunrises. (The boat is French not German but as the Chorus Mysticus in Faust said: everything’s a metaphor…Will we ever see lasting peace?)

Locale: Stapleton

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

Boundaries

QOTD:
There is no freedom

We all reach the boundary eventually…

— Todd Rundgren

Backstory: The Harbour…and a great song by Todd. Great lyric, great vocal line, Truth.

Locale: Stapleton

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

 

This song (“Come” from the White Knight CD) is truly a masterpiece. Who would have thought Todd would equal Hello It’s Me – at age 69?

Road To Nowhere

Shot Of The Day: November 29, 2017





QOTD:
They can tell you what to do
But they’ll make a fool of you and it’s all right
Baby, it’s all right
We’re on a road to nowhere

— David Byrne

Backstory: With only tantrums from a toilet tweeter to guide us we are surely on a road to nowhere. (This is a prop car, not a real taxi…a fake car like a fake prez, takes us nowhere – FAST!)

Locale: Stapleton

Equipment: Nikon D7000 / AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G IF-ED
