Leaving Manhattan

Kelli and I took a cruise to New England this autumn. The ride out of Manhattan was neat, but not nearly so as the ride back in on day 7 at sunrise. I didn’t get that on time-lapse but here is out ride out.  Enjoy!

I know kids are kids, but after several days of seeing the memorials and monuments, and the utmost lack of reverence by more than a few students, I was more than a bit disappointed. A few gave me hope today however.

I happened to catch the end of the instructions a U.S. Army Staff Sergeant was giving to four youth who were about to present a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns. The Staff Sergeant was everything you’d expect of someone holding such a role at such a place, but it was the students (as pictured in the glasses of the Staff Sergeant) that were the story here.

No noise, not a smirk, and only utmost reverence from them, probably more so than that of even myself and many other of the adults there. So to the Unknowns represented there, the soldiers guarding them, and these fine youth, you have my reverence.

So many icons

I have to think it was planned this way.  Things like this don’t happen by accident. The amazing foresight in some of the monuments in our Nation’s Capitol is stunning, if one finds them.

I’ve noticed a few, and I no doubt walked by many others with notice.  I found this gem at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.  Since I haven’t found any other photos like it, I have to think it is somewhat of a secret.  That’s understandable as you can only see it in one spot and move your head half an inch one way or the other and you’ll miss it.

Photo of the day 2/24/2012 – “Untitled”

After giving out some tips to someone today about what to see and do in Alaska, I wanted to revisit what was the highlight of my trip…A two and a half hour flight-seeing trip that included landing on a glacier in the Sheldon Amphitheater at the hiking basecamp.

There is so much to tell about this photo. It’s probably worth at least a couple thousand words. I’ll have to save those for another time.
