This is an old tombstone in a cemetery just up the street from my daughters house in Greenwich, CT. I thought it was an interesting memorial. Seems people took an interest in memorializing their family “back in the day”. Perhaps these days were too quick to crate and burn. Oh, I know, save the land for something more useful. But still, memorials are to the person and LIFE.
Playing with texture and color in these two photos. Adobe Elements and Topaz Adjust were the tools.
Stopped at Jimmie’s in the Savin Rock section of West Haven Connecticut when I up north in June. Although the current restaurant has been up for several decades, it’s a stark change from the Hot Dog stand of the 50s and 60s with Ronnie screaming out “Split Two”!
Two split Roesslers hot dogs, fries, and cole slaw – went down easy the the cold brew. I didn’t really remember the neon green relish but I guess they always served it. It’s the hot relish at the Glenwood Drive-In I love!
I’ve let life slip by. There’s a whirl of life going on around me and I’m not really part of it. I haven’t accomplished much and I the new energy is flowing like a fast train above my head.
All in a row…. they are all in a row…
I’ve decided to keep my photography blog separate from my sartorial interests. I just makes sense – and I can organize my task and content a bit better that way. You can find my new blog at here .
Came up with this cocktail hour offering – attempting to match the color newly acquired Nantucket Reds® from Murray’s. Later this weekend I’ll put the kit on a model it all for ya!
Here are the mixology instructions:
In a shaker half filled with ice
2 oz of your favorite vodka
2 oz of cranberry-pomegranate juice
1 oz of orange juice (not from concentrate)
Squeeze of a wedge of lime
Shake and pour into a nice crystal beverage glass or martini glass
Note: This beverage is nice but a tad tart – some folks probably like it that way. You might consider adding ½ oz. of simple syrup to take the bite off.
2 cups of water
2 cups of sugar
Heat to a boil and all sugar granules are dissolved and then let it cool. Keeps in the refrigerator forever.
