Except at the poles where it get's a bit greedy.

Adore the nautical shots Cloudia and the sunsets from you nest in the sky are marvelous.
p.s. the city at night shot your Uncle took is fabulous I love it, so much going on there..with the Marlon Brando 'On the Waterfront' poster I guess it must have been taken in the middle 50's, clothes everything brilliant..was this taken in Philly?

Always delightful. I just caught up with yesterday's post too. You must be so full of joy, to give so much away.

I see sometimes kids who never get praised by their parents. It breaks my heart.

Thank you Cloudia, your words are extra sweet today, and they leave me wanting for a slow sail across the bluest of waters, before the cold winds move in. Safe sails away-Karen

Cloudia said...

YOUR words just bring SO much joy into my life.

Extraordinary - yet daily; a Zen koan
Thanks everybody!

Perth Pal mentions my uncle (by marriage)Louis Clyde Stoumen (1917–1991) who was a film director, and also a photog. His shots of NY City at night, Times Square, and other places like Puerto Rico are wonderful. Check him out if you get a chance.
