Mixed Bag

Revising a few old and recent images. Plus, a couple of experiments.

The third image is an old exhibit on the High Line of different colored glass representing the color of the Hudson River at various times of the day. Muhheakantuuck is the native American word for river that flows both ways.

The last image is the light house bent with time.


Views to the north from One Vanderbilt, New York City. Central Park is visible. This is the last post in this series.


Views to the east from One Vanderbilt., New York City. The third picture down shows Marc and I reflected in the window. Pictures signed Felix are by Marc. Picture 1, 2, 3 and 8 show the Chrysler building.


Views to the west form One Vanderbilt, New York City. The sun sets fast this time of year.


Views south from One Vanderbilt, New York City. Variations on a theme.


As a treat for Marc’s birthday and for me we went up to the SUMMIT One Vanderbilt on 42 Street by Grand Central Terminal: SUMMIT One Vanderbilt | Best Landmark In The United States (summitov.com) (see the videos on their site). I paid for the whole experience including cocktails. Unfortunately, the outside glass elevator was closed due to high winds. I got a refund for that part. The elevator ride up inside was trippy as was the whole experience. I felt like I was in a time warp. The last photograph is where the cocktails are served. More to follow…

SI Landscapes 2

The highlight of the day was seeing the harbor seals in the Red bank Reach, Lower Hudson Bay. I enjoyed seeing the ice pattens around the tree trunks.
