There is energy in the air.
I have a totally massive respect for portrait photographers. I find it challenging… however, I am happy with how these turned out. Thanks for stopping by.
I have been enjoying visiting family and friends this past week back home on Long Island, New York, where I spent my childhood. If you have been following my blog you know that I am very content and at peace to walk along the shore and enjoy the beauty of the sea. My brother (we are twins) has the same kind of peace and joy, only, he has to be on the sea. He is a talented, skilled sailor and, he and his wife took us out for a sunset sail. It was a beautiful evening. This is the first of a few posts from our evening. Do you prefer the black and white, or, the color version?
I am back home in New York visiting my family. Always glad to be able to head back to the shore.
These are taken at Robert Moses State Park.
The Robert Moses Causeway is named after the urban master builder, Robert Moses, who is responsible for much of what life looks like in New York: highways, suburbs and, state parks.
I have been visiting this abandoned building for quite some time now on my motorcycle rides. If you are interested, here is where you can read about the history of what is know as the Marseilles Mill Ruins. (Click on the image for a larger view.)
Here is the view from the bridge, looking upriver (East) at the Marseilles Dam. You can see that the water level is high from recent heavy rains. (To see a larger version, just click on the image.)
The first of a series of photographs take on a recent motorcycle trip to Marseilles, IL. I love the small towns along the Illinois River, and, this is one of my favorite. Pictured here is my uber-fun to ride Indian Scout Sixty. More to come…
