Mosaic Monday

It's a feast for the eyes (and the
palate) at the Saturday greenmarket
here in Brooklyn.

To see more Monday Mosaics, head
over to Mary's Little Red House.

Twigg Bridge, Virginia

AKA the Piankatank Bridge, because
it crosses the Piankatank (where, as
the locals will tell you, the frogs all
jump from bank to bank) River. In
the Virginia delta, more than 150
rivers, large and small, flow into
the Chesapeake Bay.

Weekend Reflections

Saw these boats tied up on the banks of
the Arno, In Florence—right underneath
the Ponte Vecchio.

Mosaic Monday

More roses—because where there were only
a few rose bushes in bloom a week or two ago,
now there are thousands! See here.

And to see more mosaics, visit Mary's
Little Red House.

Pont Louis Philippe

I'm sure Louis la Vache recognizes
this one from his time in Paris—
especially if he ever made the climb
up to the top of Notre Dame. (This
old photo dates back to when we
all used film.)

2 things Challenge: Brilliant/Hidden

Pere Lachaise cemetery, Paris—and
I only got to see this brilliant window
because the door to the crypt happened
to be partially open; normally it's hidden
from view.

Weekend Reflections

One of the few cobblestone streets still
left in Manhattan—this is Bond Street.
The building seen reflected here is
this one.

monday mosaic

Caught these luscious bluebells two weekends
in a row—though they appear to be two entirely
different colors, that's just because one weekend
it was raining and the other it was sunny (and more
than 40,000 were planted here!).

3 for 1

Here's what I saw while flying home one stormy
night: from left to right, the Brooklyn, Manhattan,
and Williamsburg bridges. (It's best blown up—
why can't they clean the plane windows?)

2 Things Challenge: Initial/Impression

I knew exactly what I wanted to do here—
and I had the tools (i.e., initials) I needed;
the hard part was finding some pristine
sand that didn't have 10 or 12 small
children playing in it. Luckily, I spent the
weekend near the water and discovered a
beautiful private beach behind a house
under construction.

mosaic monday

The roses are just beginning to bloom
in the botanic garden here in Brooklyn.
Here's how the first of them looked after
a spring shower.

Ponte della Paglia

And what are all these people looking at?
The bridge I'm taking this picture from—
the beautiful Bridge of Sighs.

beautiful architecture reflected in
a tranquil canal.

2 Things Challenge: Cardinal/Number

One cardinal . . .
Two cardinals . . .
Three cardinals . . .
What? Not cardinal numbers?
Oh well—they were the first,
second, and third thing I thought of.

Mosaic Monday

It's almost like time-lapse
photography, no? :~)
(Well, these shots were taken
over a span of a couple of weeks.)

Manhattan Bridge

Another addition to Louis La Vache's
Bridges meme. I've recently shown a
version of this view on my other blog:
Seen from the Brooklyn Bridge, the
Empire State Building is framed by the
upper part of the bridge. And if you go
down on the street (in DUMBO—Down
Under The Manhattan Bridge Overpass),
the framing is slightly different but no
less spectacular.
