This is my B/W post for Day 1 of the 5 Day photo challenge. The wonderful Prior linked me for this challenge.
We all know what happened in Massachusetts when it topped 100 inches of snow in a record breaking winter. Contrary to what the weathermen had predicted, New York, New Jersey, and the other states in the East Coast were spared the assault.
Though it’s been snowing in NY and NJ intermittently, the snow that fell for two consecutive days last week showed aggression:
This gull’s perched on a snow-assaulted railing. When you look into its eyes, you see purpose and no purpose. Contradictory? Well, gulls live a purposeless life, I believe, but are purposeful enough to be purposeless. They’re the spiritual heads of the birds’ fraternity.
Bicycle told snow: “Spare me. Jam Mercedes’ tires instead.”
These are not my footsteps — could’ve been mine. I followed them, some followed mine.
Whose car is it? Mine. What next? What next!
I link the great Kim Gosselin for this challenge. She’s a lovely photographer, too.
Founded in 1951, Corning Museum of Glass is the world’s largest glass museum in Corning, New York. We visited the museum on our way to Niagara Falls.
If you’re keen to learn the art, science and history of glass, this is the place to be. It has on display 35 centuries of glass artistry, from the Roman and Islamic periods up to modern art glass; has live demonstrations for glassblowing, glass breaking, lamp working; has exhibits showing commercial uses of glass like fiber optics, telescope lens; has thousands of glass artworks by renowned artists.
A fellow blogger’s article on suicide in Niagara Falls An Open Letter To The Lost was well received. I loved the piece so much that it lingered in my mind for days and yesterday, I began looking for the pictures that I’d taken when my wife and I were at the Falls.
