Eternally yours…

A view form a hill just north of the Forbidden City, in Beijing, China. From Jingshan Park, if memory serves… This is a view of the north gate… in the far distance you might be able to make out the southernmost gate of the city; and on the other side of that is Tiananmen Square… I swear to you I could spend a month in the Forbidden City, shooting with a different lens, all day, every day, and still not do this place justice, photographically… The way the light strikes the various surfaces, and always shifting… The people… The museums…   It is truly a marvel…       Advertisements

Wishing I was there…

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, I got to go to Greece for about 5 or 6 days… for work… Well, my work involves a great deal of physicality and chutzpah, so after we were done setting up, but before the gig, I climbed to the top of the structure we’d built and captured the above… and many more besides… Something about the romance of the Mediterranean, coupled with the scenery, made it all seem terribly adventurous to me… And as you can see… My love affair with sunsets goes way back…        

The Great Wall…

I’m sure I’ve shared this, in one form or another, before… but I can’t find it now But with work so dastardly busy these days (… that’s Mr. Dastardly, to you…) I just haven’t had the time or the energy to post anything of substance… … if I ever did… So it’s a (maybe… I sure as heck don’t know right at this precise moment…) oldie but a goodie…   The Great Wall of China… right at the beginning of Spring…   I must now sleep, for the morrow comes much too quickly… And not even sneaking in on little silky soft bunny slippers, either… More of a Lord of the Dance meets the Kansas City Cloggers of repute, with a healthy dose of flat-footed elephants stamping out flaming ducks kind of aggressive toe-tapping… For somebody what ain’t making any music, we sure are beating out a mess of time, these days…   If you know what I mean by all of that…
