Jez’s WWE Challenge: January 8, 2020

Choppy water 1The day before yesterday, the water on the Bay was very choppy.  With the white tarps on the boats, the turbulent water creates a faux snowy landscape.  It was a fairly blustery day, as Winnie the Pooh might say.  Here’s another interesting view of the Bay Bridge (See yesterday’s post.) from the vantage point of Bay Ridge. The Bridge is three miles long and is the venue for many charitable walks and runs.

Today’s photo is a bit closer than yesterday’s. These photos are for the very talented Jez Braithwaite and his challenge, Water Water Everywhere.  I’m a big fan of Mr. Braithwaite.  So if you are not familiar with his work, I heartily encourage you to check out his website. Bay Bridge 2

For now, this is my final entry for Mural a Day. I’ll be on the lookout for more groovy murals, graffiti, and such. Happy New Year!

Devotion, January 7, 2020

Hail Holy Queen, mother of mercy, our light, our sweetness and our hope. To Thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To Thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, your eyes of mercy upon us and show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Amen.

Butterfly, January 7, 2020

Butterfly 1Butterfly in flight

These photographs were taken on August 29, 2019. This is the first time that I’ve posted them here. I like the first shot because it looks like the butterfly is staring straight into the camera. His proboscis is dead center in his face. The angle of the wings is interesting too. The second photo is awfully blurry, I know, but I still like it. It is a butterfly in flight. At this point in time, I don’t have the necessary equipment to do justice to such a picture. If you look carefully, you can see that I did get a bead on the tip of one of his antennae.
