I looked out my bedroom window this morning here in the Pocono Mountains, saw the fog, quickly got dressed, got my camera, headed down to a back road …  … and took this picture. I wish you all mornings like this one. © A. Mac/A.G.

Photo-Essay: The New Mall, Inside and Out

Photo-Essay: The New Mall, Inside and Out Okay, I didn't wait. I decided to go to the brand new mall across from my apartment on opening day. It was really crowded, of course, and noisy like you wouldn't believe.  My phone was in my pocket and I didn't hear it ring.  I was somewhat disappointed with what stores were there, and what ones were not.  I went into the Burger King to look at its menu, and noted that there were no veggie burgers, which I would have preferred. As well, neither...

Danu She is a river, Her blood flows down across the Land. Her whispering lips birth her names into the void: Danu Danand Don Listen to the voice: Deep as a well that vanishes into the darkness, echoing with secret desires With sighs that bring both pleasure and pain, Washing away death with life. In her arms she carries all lives into the cradle of the Earth: Embracing our bones, Like shining pieces of stone. The Rigveda...

Another Beautiful Day - Another Walk With My Camera This morning I got up quite early, before the sunrise, so I waited for it and took a photo from our small rear balcony.  You can see on the right the university library at Chongqing Normal University, its clock tower should be a familiar site to those who have been following my photo essays as I have posted a number of photos of it from differing viewpoints in my photo essays. The clock imitates the sound of London's Big Ben and can be...

I've been working on an ongoing project of building the Century Series Jets in 1/48 scale.  It's kind of a throwback to the time of my childhood, when these jets were America's front line fighters and interceptors.               I built a Revell issue of the F-104 Starfighter, but was not very happy with the results.  So I purchased a Hasegawa brand F-104, and man was I impressed.  You will see in the article and photos, it is a much more detailed kit.

Every kid needs  a "hobby." One of my "hobbies" is more like an addiction with an attached objective … that is, going into the forests of the Pennsylvania Pocono Mountains looking for Black Bears (and other critters) with the objective of photographing them in their natural settings … and marketing the photos to publishers. I have no doubt that more bears have seen me and quietly gone their way, than my seeing them. And most bears I've seen were either too far from my lens or too...

Saturday poetry: The Rubaiyat (2) By Omar Khayyam

I Wake! For the Sun, who scatter'd into flight The Stars before him from the Field of Night, Drives Night along with them from Heav'n, and strikes The Sultan's Turret with a Shaft of Light. II Before the phantom of False morning died, Methought a Voice within the Tavern cried, "When all the Temple is prepared within, Why nods the drowsy Worshipper outside?" III And, as the Cock crew, those who stood before The Tavern shouted--"Open then the...

Poetry Sunday: The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam


By:  @kpr37, 2 weeks ago

Latest By:  @community, 2 weeks ago

M ost connoisseurs of poetry have heard of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam , a collection of poems originally written in Persian and attributed to the eleventh-century poet and polymath after whom it is named. The various translations of the Rubaiyat have given the English language some of its most enduring verses and images (most notably “a jug of wine, a loaf of bread, and thou” ). And yet, how many people know the distinctly freethought sentiments of this famous poem? Today’s...

Latest By:  @community, 2 weeks ago

I'm trying something different in the way of "poster" type images … breaking away from the traditions rectangular, square and even circular images. When I wrote my thesis, "The Role of Presupposition in the Perception of Art," I question why canvases that were not rectangular or square were referred to as "SHAPED" canvases … after all, aren't squares and rectangles … "shapes" in-and-of-themselves? Anyway, I am very much interested in any feedback on the images below … positive,...
