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…
