The new MAX extension necessitated this new bridge. It has been fun watching the progress of this structure. This is a fun progression shot, and I will look forward to getting one of the completed bridge with a MAX train crossing over the river.
This is the elusive Potato Rock Gosling…. They are on a migration path from the Yukon, headed to Brazil. They only migrate every five years and with dwindling numbers due to climate change, are very hard to find. Many ardent photographers have tried for years, but when these critters even smell a camera they are off. However, I being such a stealthy boy, using my sleep abilities to fly, was able to. No sooner had I clicked the shutter than it flew away quickly, so I was not able to get a second shot.
One of the more exciting things to see in New York was the, still under construction, Freedom Tower, an amazing building, standing tall above the skyline, reminding us that we can rise from the dust, hold our heads high, and be a great nation.
Being in New York was as exciting as being in some famous old European country. There is so much to look at. Over several decades I had seen many scenes of New York in movies and television shows, but never felt that I would actually go visit. Walking around and seeing the famous sights was such a thrill. That goes also for seeing the New York Stock Exchange.
As we were walking toward Stanton Ferry and crossing a street, I glanced up to see the new Freedom Tower. I stepped back a few steps to take a couple of shots. Satisfied that I had gotten the shot I wanted, I looked around to see that I was blocking traffic. The driver didn't even honk.
The sign in the foreground caught my eye so I decided to use it in this cityscape. While the message of the sign may be insulting to all the beautiful blonds, I did find it funny. You may want to click on the picture to enlarge it enough to read the sign.
While on vacation in the Caribbean, at St. Lucia I was taking a photo of this wall. As this woman walked by with her man, I noticed that her towel, tan and clothing would enhance the image I was attempting to capture. She agreed to lean against the wall. The shots without her, were just plain.
While working out in the garden on a hot day, this little green frog hopped over to enjoy the cool of my soda. The frog stayed put each time I picked up the can for a drink, letting me place it back next to her, snuggling back up to it. Once the can was empty and warmed, she hopped away, having had a cool respite.
