Dayton, Ohio

An early morning walk around Dayton, Ohio before heading home. Hard hit by the decline in manufacturing, the town is rife with shuttered factories. I found this one rather beautiful, however, the colors, textures and geometry caught my eye.

Broadway Billboard

Yet another billboard shot, but I loved the quirky placement of the man in the center of it all.

I couldn’t pick a favorite photo from my walk around lower Manhattan today, so you get three. Here, Wall Street…

Cemetery Noir

For lack of a better idea, I stopped by the nearby cemetery to hunt for a photo today, then processed it all noir-ish.

Riley

Today, within a span of two hours, I was whiplashed by grief and joy. We put our sweet 14-year-old whippet to sleep, and then my daughter-in-law came by with our grandson, knowing that a little time with him would console us. And that it did.

All American Picnic

A little Americana today…it was the back-lit balloons and barbecue smoke that caught my eye at this picnic at Greenwich Point Park.

Grandson in the Clouds

Today was an 180-degree about-face from yesterday…I spent the entire day with my adorable 7-month old grandson, who laughed and babbled and smiled my sadness away.

Sad Dog

It was a long, sad day today. After four hours at the animal hospital and a battery of tests, the vet told me what I feared, that it is time to put down my 14-year-old whippet. (He was diagnosed with prostate cancer a year ago January, and has outlived his prognosis by 18 months.) They sent me home with a few days worth of painkillers and a heavy heart. While terribly sad, my photo today reveals that perhaps my sweet Riley is more ready to let go than I am.

Times Square Couples

I often regret my forays into Times Square, since the place unfailingly gives me a headache and infrequently gives me a photograph worth posting. But today, it was worth suffering through the crowds and the congestion for this little nugget.
