Decorating for Halloween

I'm very happy this guy is busy decorating the outside of my house, not inside!

I'm on vacation. I'm still very busy catching up on all my tasks at home. But no one can work all the time, so I headed to one of my favorite spots, The Ship Inn, for dinner the other night.
I wound up with enough ribs for two dinners!

Mystery Tree

I was walking today in Frenchtown, New Jersey, testing my new camera. I came upon this tree with strange blossoms.... can anyone identify it? It was about 8 feet tall with large hanging blooms and many buds. A bit spooky in fact.

Sometimes I have to look for that which is unusual, the contrasts. Here's a photo from one of my first visits to the High line. I know you are saying, Wait... that's in NY!!! New York and New Jersey are like Yin and Yang, anyone who might deny this is living in another time and place!

Walking New York

I went downtown today to the site of the World Trade Center. I have been in the area a number of times, and have not been able to escape a feeling of great sadness.
I got off the subway and walked in front of the Federal Office Building, and was struck by this image. Seems to me that Lady Liberty was bent by the sadness of events, how prophetic!

New Favorites

It's not NJ, it's NY.
The High Line. It's different, there's nothing like being able to walk without stopping every other block for lights.
And the views are just different!
