The Turn of the Year

By Vladimir Brezina

I mean, of course, the ancient turn of the year, the Winter Solstice—not that newfangled, artificial New Year on January 1st.

The Winter Solstice occurs today, December 21st, at 6:03 PM EST (New York time).  This year, especially, we look forward to the days finally getting longer…

… and we are still waiting for our first real snowstorm, which at least for a day or two makes everything brighter :-)

Happy Winter Solstice from us in NYC!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Work of Art

By Vladimir Brezina

This week’s Photo Challenge is Work of Art.

With its cunningly laid-out landscapes and waterscapes, NYC’s Central Park is, of course, not a work of Nature, but of Art.

And it inspires people to create Works of Art of their own…

Ice sculptures!
