In praise of rusty things…

Myths, like art, are attempts to catch a glimpse of undiscovered country. They take everyday existence and transform it into something remarkable. It is through these stories that misfortunes are transformed into adventures, attractions are transformed into everlasting love, and the process of life and death is transformed into a magnificent mechanism that operates beyond our line of sight.”     ~Michael deMeng

The following photographs are a series that studies what was left behind.

I find color,  interest and design in the chaos.  My eye wants to wander around –  follow the lines, find the small things, look for treasure.

It’s bloomin’ in da hood

Out for a quick bike ride through the neighborhood to see spring in full bloom. All the magnolias and fruit trees are exploding with flowers, the streets and lawns are awash in petals.

One last picture

Can’t help it, just as I’m ready to completely disconnect from the electronic world, I have to post one more picture. This is a cup of apple tea- taken at the rooftop garden cafe of the Niles hotel in Istanbul. Mmmmmmm…

OLD, NEW fangled

mental Perhaps I’m stuck in a rut or maybe my fingers are just too fat but the tiny iphone keyboard typing is not sitting well with me.  I’m just not that fast and it’s driving me a bit batty when I want to make a quick list.  SO, I’m trying Mental Note and UYH.  Both seem to be working well for what I need.  No good really without a stylus…oh yes, I got one…love it!
