First Day of Summer.
Longest day of the year.
Days start getting shorter tomorrow.
(This is where I curse…..)
Traveling on Route 1, in the south and east of Vik, in the distance is the Myrdalsjokull glacier.
Different parts of the glacier have different names.
Someone said, “Parents need to raise their children
so when they become adults, they don’t need you anymore.”
An unintended consequence I found is “I still need them“.
This Sunday is Father’s Day.
Happy Father’s day to all the Dads.
The American Landscape.
Skyscrapers and Nature.
New York City. Monument Valley.
Before George Lucas changed the American Film landscape with Star Wars, he made American Graffiti. A story set in the 1950’s starring an ensemble cast that included Ron Howard, Richard Dreyfuss and Harrison Ford (aka Hans Solo). The action takes place in California during one night and Mel’s Drive-In is featured prominently in the narrative. The photograph above was taken in San Francisco.
Recently my son and his girlfriend had a weekend getaway to the city and I mentioned Mel’s. They stopped in for a meal.
After a rainstorm, wet leaves.
Photograph originally make with 35mm color slide film.
Scanned and processed into B&W.
Traveling on a San Francisco cable car is part of the experience,
but imagine being the cable car operator. You not only have to operate
antique machinery, but you also have to warn knuckleheads who come
dangerously close to losing a limb.
The Living Planet.
The Earth breathes at Hverarond by Lake Myvatn in Northern Iceland.
The steam has a very strong sulfur smell.
My daughter with her face wrapped in a scarf
to lessen the odor, takes some photographs of the traveling mist.
Thinking of London and the terror attacks over the weekend. My wife and I have visited several times, the first being on our honeymoon. For the occasion, I wanted to go someplace I’ve never been with no language barrier and London was the destination. Little did I realize, I would love the place. Imagine…buildings older than my country. I’m not only referring to government and historical buildings like the Tower of London or Parliament. When visiting Arundel, a small town south of London, I had lunch in an inn that was 400 years old. Wow.
