"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

A Trick of the Light.

Three weeks in the New World:

First celebrating my son’s wedding in Manhattan

Then gently relaxing with family in New Mexico

The spring light and warmth has coaxed out new foliage from the trees of  Central Park

And etiolated limbs from New Yorkers, tired of winter.

In New Mexico, most cottonwoods remain bare.

The waxing light of spring brings new reflections:

Cubist reflections of the high-rise city;

Quieter reflections of New Mexico.

But even in the midst of nature’s reflections

The human handIs never far away.

  2. Managed to avoid the wrath of Iceland but arrived home to meet technology and health glitches

    Followed your postings whilst I travelled the States and caught up again in India, once I could get on-line. Guessed the Zen approach would be doomed to failure when I read the blog prohibition! A couple of my NM refection shots were similar to yours but taken, I promise, before yours were posted!
