Transparent hues and reflecting panels...

          At the Morgan Library and Museum in NYC an installation by Spencer Finch,

          Transforming a clear glass cube into an environmental stained glass quilt.

      It doesn't look quite real, almost like a Photoshop experiment with colors and layers...

      A second look doesn't resolve it, as there are also clear glass panels hanging from the ceiling,
      moving, reflecting from all directions....

a delightful abstract world,
embedded with bits of reality, like collages ...

             Windows outside are turned into staccato patterns -

            Inside, jeweled treasures find a competing - or complementary? light.

Ben Franklin and the Gingkos -

      No not a rock band, but certainly concerning stones -

                  the historic graveyard on Christ Church Burial Ground in the heart of Philadelphia.

                  Tourists stop by on Second Street - to visit Ben.

                Once inside the gates, there's a mystery and a peace in these tattered stones ...

                Here and there, a flag flickers...
                                 Four signers of the Declaration of Independence are also buried here.

                                                                 Among the urns and the slabs....

                                                 it's almost like standing in an Edward Gorey cartoon.

 Thanks to Our World Tuesday a home for traveling bloggers !

More Glory -

          thru the woods ... sun shines brightly, a land to travel in...

                                        reminiscent of old haunts and restful places ....
                                           yellow, yellow and more yellow ....

                                                                       sweet dreams.

                                                       places to wander.

Dusk at the Fair...

     Not too crowded
     the peaks of tents and flying flags draw our attention...

    Along with the unique scene of three crosses, two ponies and a bandstand ....

                                                       with a sweetly smiling donkey.
    Inside, there is eating,

                Outside, spinning on wheels

                                and watermelons -
     high stepping dancers entertain the crowds,

the chairs sit it out

the flags wave.

Rabbits Abound -

   At the Long Island Rabbit Show.

                                                 Everyone here seems to love them....
the petting,
 the holding, the smiles... 

   The quirky, irresistible personalities.... 
      An endless fascination,
                                               and sweetness.                   

           For me, there is something inscrutable, something other, old and mysterious,
                                as if there's a secret they're not telling.  Good for them.

Yellow, yellow, Yellow -

                      I'd never seen forsythia looking like this -

                       A gorgeous new shape, forsythia reimagined...

                                                    laced with twine,

                                                   woven this way, that way,
                                                   binding the branches together.

Standing in the paths, the best modernist sculptures
                                                              Could not beat this.
                     What a glory of yellow -  - -


To be that close.
