Holiday Train Show, at the New York Botanical Garden...

Under the glass bubble dome of the main conservatory  
                      miniature trains race -
                                                            wending their way

                                                                         past Grand Central Station

                                                                                          Rockefeller Center

           the Chrysler Building.                                    
                                              A fantasy city constructed of sticks and bark, seeds and pods.

                      We look up                                   

                                                                      and down,

                                                             fascinated -

                 and protected from the cold blast outside.

                      The NYBG Holiday Train Show is an annual tradition, this year running
                      Nov. 19th thru Jan 16th 2017.

Leaves, collected -

I went outside one day in November to find the front yard littered with brilliant clusters of
leaves, damp and stuck together by an early misty rain ...



Randomly scattered joy !
 A rich carpet, for sure.

 And why post now in the middle of the Christmas season?  
How could I wait until next fall ?

Warm and Sunny

    A gift in the fall, to come down to the water, for a breather.


as the sun sets the drama grows


                                                      Centerport Beach, what a treasure.

Snow Frieze -

             A history of storms laced with dirt, ice and sand -  

  a layering of neutrals

like a marble counter top.

Dramas play out, what did Whistler call them ?
      "harmonies" in gray, black and white ?
     Such applies.
             An unknown beast sleeping -

              A frog like creature and companion.                                                                  

                                                                  White capped waves -

                                                                      in a silent world.
