Bright Lights for the New Year

                     What time is it ?  Soon the New Year -
                               We rush towards the future

 Leaving behind the glorious chaos of Christmas 

                               Treasuring it's more quiet moments.


Greetings to Our World Tuesday , where bloggers share their stories !

Christmas on Main -

     Trees decorated by Brownies line the street...

                                              Colorful and spirited...
Patriotic poppies and the Flanders Fields poem,
 pristine in red, winter white and blue -

 An eye catching starfish and shells bedazzed in glitter...
looking like cookies, good enough to eat.

The sky is gray gray gray but the air is warm so we don't mind -

                                                                  Banners beckon -

The wind blows.

Strangelight -

       There it is suddenly over the road    

                         How fascinating is a rainbow ?
                          One can take a lot of pictures....

                   In the time it takes for sun to meet rain....

This rainbow arced over route 25 a couple of weeks ago and made the papers.  Splendid.

Linked to Our World Tuesday and Skywatch Friday   great places to "travel" to....

First flakes -

Most amazed to wake up to see traces of snow -

      Sprinkled over the garden like confectioner's sugar

                       Living greens still peeping through -

                         It almost looks warm;
       Blooms still delight on the pineapple sage.

       Many thanks! to Lady Fi and the sponsors of Our World Tuesday

New York, New York

                                 Bridges, bridges

                                 People, people

                   Buildings, buildings

                                                     Sky, sky

               And a gas station made into an art exhibit with a hilly lawn and fake sheep -
               on a busy corner where a wedding party poses ....
                               Who is the woman on the gray wall and what is she looking at ??

                                                        IT"S WONDERFUL TOWN !!
                  Art Installation - Getty Station presents; "Sheep Station" by Francois-Xavier Lalanne

Misty Hamptons Beach -

                                           Snow fences echo the rhythms of the waves

                                                          Goldenrod blooms boldly -
                                              Houses look like folded origami puzzles
       Some seem far off, set high on the dunes...

        Others dug in, half hidden fortresses.

      The sea is quiet today...

                                                       Someone has left their shoes,
                                                                   Another walks on.

          The arc shaped window belongs to an Andrew Geller house, well known innovator
                          and modernist  designer, the architect of numerous vacation homes.

Wares at the Fair...

the London Terrace Street Fair, that is - Chelsea, NYC.
We sit in shadow beneath the trees, the sunlight high up on the brownstones....

                                                    Everywhere people buying and selling -

Bric a Brac galore

                                          A lovely pink dress next to an army of men's shoes                                                  
                                                           A Sea of  Costume Jewelry

                            White china goblets displayed casually on the street -

                        Tasty crepes for when we get hungry.                           
                 A patient dog waits... by a display of vintage toasters
                                                             of every shape and size.

                                        A brilliant red parka with a faux ermine scarf -
                     Across the way a saytyr peers out over a red pitcher - a little spooky!

  At our table, lovely knitted hats and books by author Elizabeth Wix, good friend and blogger.
         Along with Christmas cards and illustrations by my father, artist James Lewicki 

          A preview of the holiday season.
