photo challenge: local

here is my contribution for (last week’s) photo challenge “local“.

this week, share what “local” means to you, and show us where your heart is.

this view greets you at the start of our driveway to our new home. beautiful fall colors.  a warm welcome embrace.


the photo was from a couple years ago, but right about this time of year it is starting to look just like that again.

welcome home.

ghost ship on Lake Superior

this video has been going viral online over the last couple days, so you may have already seen it, but a videographer in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula was shooting video of a rainbow out on Lake Superior when he caught what appears to be a ghost ship out on the horizon.

not exactly the Edmund Fitzgerald, maybe it could be the Flying Dutchman?  most likely a perfectly simple phenomenon of weather, with patterns of light, moisture in the air and curvature of the earth coming in to play… but it sure looks like a ship if you ask me?!

lack of sails

this basically describes my recent summers: lacking in sails.

today’s tunes: Peggy-O [live @ Eaux Claires, 2015]

I’ve posted this song before, but here is another brilliant live version of The National performing their cover of the Grateful Dead song “Peggy-O”.  performed at Eaux Claires 2015.

keep calm

photo challenge: rare

this may be somewhat of a stretch, but the photo challenge is subject to interpretation… this week’s subject is “rare”.

I’ve chosen a highlight a photo I took of the sunrise over the ocean in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Nikon D70, f/6.3, 1/60 sec

most of my life has been spent in Michigan and I’ve seen hundreds of amazing sunsets on Lake Michigan – and granted you can see the sunrise over Lake Huron, I’m not sure it would compare to watching the sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean.  so, for me, a sunrise over water is a pretty rare occasion.

how’s that for Jersey fresh, Baydog?
