Men at Work

I found this unusual sculpture in Trenton New Jersey. I'll be a man at play for a few weeks.
Prague, Salzburg, Munich and maybe a few other German cities. I'll bring back lots of pictures.

See you in mid to late December.

Save the Frogs

The writing on the side of the green car with the frog says "Save the frogs around the world" Or something like that. This is one of my favorite reflection photos. The fish are the only things that are not reflections. I took it in front of the Dallas Aquarium almost a year ago.

How many fish do you see? It could be the more you stare the more there'll be. :)

This was taken with my old handy dandy pocket camera.

For more Weekend Reflections please go to Newtown Area Photo every Friday from 11:01 am thru Sunday 11:59 pm est.

Puppet Master

Sometimes I look at the big picture to see what I can extract. There is more to this picture but I decided to have some fun and post this cropped version. Please forgive my poor editing skills but the guy on the corner reminds me of a marionette so I gave him some strings.

The United States has seen better Days

This is the S.S. United States. I sits rusting away in Philadelphia. A stark contrast to when it was a luxury liner breaking speed records across the Atlantic in the early 1950's.

A Narrow Bridge

The front of the Kelsey Building

Looking up and into the sun

The side view of the clock



The top of the doorway with the mahogany in the background and the detailed metal gate
Her twin can be seen in the photo below on the left.

The bottom of the doorway
The Kelsey Building was built in 1911, it was designed by one of America's most famous architects, Cass Gilbert.
He modeled the Kelsey Building after the most famous palace of the Florentine Renaissance – the Palazzo Strozzi which was built in Florence, Italy, in 1489. The Kelsey Building now houses administrative offices for Thomas Edison State College.
I really want to go back to Trenton and take more and better pictures of this and other buildings.
Trenton seems like it's not the safest place to wander around though, but it has some really cool buildings. The area where I took these pictures seemed pretty much deserted.



Three Windows and a Pair of Shoes

I'm not sure why this caught my eye but it did. This scene gave me a sort of nostalgic feeling and black and white seemed like the way to go.
