Have not put any recent pictures, because I haven't taken any. A few from a quick run we made up to Grand Isle in the middle of Lake Champlain a few days ago to visit old friends; he has spent the last three years redoing their house, basically by himself. I actually had forgotten my camera so a few from the cell phone, didn't really think to take pictures of everything he did, but he put in new floors, windows and ceilings through the entire (small) house, a picture here of a second floor bedroom they added. Nice floor, windows and ceiling; not a bad bedroom view either.
WhoPeter Sylvester is a long time New York City resident who used to spend too much time taking pictures. Some new ones, some from years past.
WhatAnsel Adams once said, and I'm sure I am paraphrasing, "people used to keep diaries, now they take pictures." This is an attempt, every day or so, for myself to take some minutes, to reflect and ponder, to make a conscious effort to escape for a few moments from the life we rush so quickly through. An attempt at some discipline, an attempt at some awareness.
