Two towers, Broadway style

It has nothing to do with Tolkien.
No rings.
No orcs.
No ents.
No wizards.
No hobbits.

But they are towers.
And there are two of them.

Blossoms in the gloaming

Making my way up Broadway last night,
the tower of Riverside Church caught my attention.
Without a clue,
I nonetheless played
with angles and
with settings.

Most of the efforts now reside in the recycle bin,
unless they have always been deleted.

This one seemed interesting enough to share.

Tulips in motion

The tulip theme continues.
I took this photo of tulips in a planter
on Third Avenue in Manhattan.

I recognize the photo is blurry:
simply blurry:
unintentionally blurry:
blurry because I used the wrong setting
or because I failed to hold the camera steady
or both.

I do not pretend that I tried for this effect.
But I enjoy pondering the illusion
that the tulips are
moving!

Tulip after the rain

After the Presbyterian Ecumenical Advocacy Days cruise,
which did indeed last only three hours – sorry Gilligan –
we returned to the hotel.

The rain stopped.
Its aftermath remained.

View from the bus

We took a bus to the boat for the Presbyterian cruise
during Ecumenical Advocacy Days.

It rained.

Book, candle, no bell

At Ecumenical Advocacy Days, I became the quasi-official Presbyterian photographer,
taking photos at the Compassion, Peace and Justice Training Day,
during Ecumenical Advocacy Days itself,
and even on the cruise.

I snapped this photo during a workshop led by
Rebecca Barnes- Davies,
PC(USA) associate for Environmental Ministries.

I have no idea what the photo means,
but it seems kind of intriguing.

At least to me.

See you along the Trail.

Another point of view

The New York Times posted an article today that contains information from George Zimmerman who shot Trayvon Martin:

In an account given to Sanford police that was passed on to the state attorney’s office, George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26, said that Trayvon had punched him and then repeatedly slammed his head into the sidewalk in the moments leading up to the shooting.

It is a reminder that there is at least one other point of view in this story. And a reminder of why a full, fair, transparent investigation is needed so that justice can be done for all who are involved.

See you along the Trail.
