Things that can be carried on a bike (#598) and a brief comment…

On the bike…Four framed photos, a large pizza, and a book bag. The below photo is one of the photos I was carrying. It is part of a series of “Photos from a Moving Train.” This one is autumn along the Hudson. The photos will be hanging in the College Street Gallery (CSG) for theContinue reading “Things that can be carried on a bike (#598) and a brief comment…”

Encore plus de neige

For some reason Mother Nature will not release her snowy grasp on much of our country this year. There has been talk of an impending storm for days and last night it was upgraded to a blizzard. Today the Governor declared Western NY under a state of emergency. So far we have well over aContinue reading “Encore plus de neige”

Things on a bike in a gallery…

File this under shameless self promotion (it has taken me years–decades even–to get better at this). Anyhow, this is one of my photos that will be featured in a series of Things that can be Carried on a Bike at Queen City Gallery through the month of January in the Historic Market Arcade Building, 617Continue reading “Things on a bike in a gallery…”

Yup…it is cold and snowy (and a few things I saw on my walk)

The above temperature is what we woke up to here in WNY. I know it is not nearly as cold as the Mid-West, but geeze ‘o man it is cold. I went out in it only briefly today (to split some logs for the wood-burning stove and then to the store fore a bottle ofContinue reading “Yup…it is cold and snowy (and a few things I saw on my walk)”

First Friday…

Okay, so this is another Buffalo specific post and a bit of shameless self-promotion (sorry). But if you happen to find yourself in Western New York during the month of December and like galleries you may be interested in visiting the College Street Art Gallery and Co-op. It’s a teeny little space at the cornerContinue reading “First Friday…”

Sometimes I Gotta Use My Feet…

If you’ve been to this blog before then you know that I like to ride bicycles as transportation. A lot. And I often comment on how much more a person sees while on a bike rather than being stuck in a plastic and metal shell more commonly known as an automobile. Many of my photos,Continue reading “Sometimes I Gotta Use My Feet…”

Squawkin’ for Momma, and What are You Lookin’ at? (and other things)

(More shameless self-promotion…sorry in advance.) So I know people view this little blog from all over the globe, but a few do view it from the very same city in which I reside. So if you happen to be in Buffalo, NY  during the month of November I’m just saying that these are two (outContinue reading “Squawkin’ for Momma, and What are You Lookin’ at? (and other things)”

Harvest Moon…

This is the view of the harvest moon from the end of my street in the middle of a medium-sized city on the eastern side of America. I find it really interesting and truly amazing that no matter what part of the globe you are reading these words sometime within a 24 hour span youContinue reading “Harvest Moon…”

Before the party…

I was the first one in the kitchen today. This is not always the case but it was today. I enjoy it; I find it soothing. It was a busy day today–I knew this before I arrived–but in the early hours of this hundred-year-old kitchen by myself I find it tranquil. And as usual, IContinue reading “Before the party…”

Two Views from My Handlebars…

 It was such a beautiful autumnal day today…cool and not a cloud in the sky. Idyllic. A great day to be out on a bicycle. I took these photos as I rode to-and-from the health club this evening. Urban Simplicity.

The View from My Handlebars (and a song)…

The artist (Matt) covering the side of a building at Allen and Park Streets, announcing (screaming) this year’s Echo Art Fair. And yes, I’m dating myself, but whenever I hear the word “echo” (OK, maybe not every time, but often), I think of the song Echo Beach, by Martha and the Muffins. Urban Simplicity.

"Tis the Season…

Yes, whether we like it or not, it is that time of year again. The weather is getting colder. And with it lighter foods give way to heartier ones, and one of my favorites is soup. I’ve posted this recipe before, or at least variations of it, but it is so delicious and easy toContinue reading “"Tis the Season…”
