Still “Winter Isolated” here in northern New Jersey, this morning I captured this image from our window, reminding me (obliquely?) of the classic Mamas and Papas song of forlorn love in the 1960s, here. And yes …those are still our trees in the foreground!
Thanks for viewing, and maybe even listening. Comments are always welcome. M 🙂
The fog absorbs the color while enhancing sense of depth; while melting snow foretells the season …with spring just days ahead!
As usual, thanks for viewing, zoom in for closer views, and comments are always welcome. M 🙂
This former passenger line, crossing Palisades Ave, in Englewood, NJ and adequately guarded by flashing lights and long crossing gates, would not be a comfortable ride today. Still used for limited light freight, it was originally opened in 1859, providing passenger service for 107 years, till 1966. The re-purposed original station still stands aside the right of way, just behind me in this photograph. Many would welcome the conversion to modernized “Light Rail” for connections to Manhattan, via Hoboken, NJ.
As usual, thanks for viewing. Comments are always welcome. M 🙂
The Louvre Museum was one of the many highlights of our vacation to France back a few years ago. Here, simply, is a view of one courtyard, a small, un-pretensious treaure in itself, and only a few steps away from the “Mona Lisa” and so many other trully celebrated works of art.

While at my desk recently, (sitting there thoughtless – for me, a common place to be,) I took this picture of the ceiling above, which slants down to a skylight.
What’s interesting, or not, is the fact that except for the window, the same color paint was used on the same type surface. Only the angle of the outside lighting is different. Yes, it’s called Illuminant Metamerism, and was a consideration for which colorants (pigments) were to be utilized in my early career in the color matching science. Ultimatly that led to “getting a (good) life” in my chosen career field.
There’s no point in zooming in on this image, but as usual, comments are always welcome. M:-)
Before the summer memories fade away, here are a few more images from our vacation to Bermuda, – approaching New York Harbor – and as seen from the Norwegian Breakaway’s upper deck, June, 2017.
