Junk Car View from Subway Car

from last Summer- you’re coming out of the ground and the subway car moves fast, shot through the hazy glass.

My sister and I were headed to Coney Island. Looks almost like a black and white photo but it’s color.

Wing Chair Garden

After breakfast with my friend Donna, we saw this pink chair in the front garden.

I shot it through the windshield.  We were stopped at the end of the alley where it was time to turn into the street.

The wing chair didn’t look as if it was put out for the trash?

Train Trestle in Traffic

Driving down the Parkway West as they call it (Route 376) the construction area provided lots of traffic.

Cars with brakes and I was able to photograph a scene I’ve just admired from the driver’s seat.

Train cars on the tracks were the added bonus.

Apalachicola FL Oyster Radio Beat Us to Publication- Guest Blog from St. George Island

Oyster Radio from Apalachicola already posted one of the photos my guest blogger Kristin sent me earlier today.  Direct from St. George Island, Florida.

This is what she saw as she looked out the window.

There was lightning and strong winds.  I asked her if she could hear anything from the waterspout.

I had to go and look up waterspout as I’ve never seen one.

The National Ocean Service explains a  waterspoutWater SpoutTo give you a better perspective, you can see their house in the picture (this is the one Oyster Radio already showed) You might remember the Century Plant from last year.

Pittsburgh Plunge and The Slide at the Pool

Saw these two photos on the desktop and they seemed similar in shape

But here’s what happens with the Pittsburgh Plunge at Kennywood


Swing Like a Pendulum Over the Tree Tops

And at a high speed!

Yes, it’s a thrill ride. Watching it from the ground with a 70-200 lens, you’re mesmerized.

You wonder why a person would want to get buckled in and subject oneself to the sensation.

Actually they look serene.

I would be screaming,  I know.

 

Here’s a youtube post of the ride in action so you can get a better idea.

 


Peace, Music and Sporting Stars and Stripes as Clothes?

In response to the word of the week SYMBOL

At Kennywood Amusement Park this afternoon into evening.  Saw a collection of symbols.

These are anonymous park patrons.

Since when did it become okay to dress in flags?
