Reward

By Vladimir Brezina

As a reward for setting out in our kayaks on a cold, snowy Manhattan circumnavigation, we raft up in the shelter of our favorite barge…

… and get out the cheese, apples, and hot tea!

Rule of Thirds

By Vladimir Brezina

Another oldie but goodie… The red leaf conforms to the Rule of Thirds, and there is some colorful bokeh in the background—as requested by this week’s Photo Challenge, Rule of Thirds.

Swimmers

Here are a few shots from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where we escaped for a few days from NYC’s bone-chilling cold. (Of course, the cold was there waiting for us when we got back; the coldest day in recent memory is today.)

Some of these shots conform to the Rule of Thirds, this week’s Photo Challenge—even though I never consider this rule when shooting, and don’t like such rules in general :-)

Details

In the early spring, crocuses are just details in the bare landscape—

Details 1

and yet, on closer inspection, each flower reveals among its petals a host of insects, each a detailed world of its own—

This was in early March 2012, a year in which spring came very early. Let’s hope that, in spite of some groundhogs’ predictions, it comes soon this year too…

Scale

By Vladimir Brezina

Big fleas have little fleas,
Upon their backs to bite ‘em,
And little fleas have lesser fleas,
and so, ad infinitum.

And the great fleas, themselves, in turn
Have greater fleas to go on;
While these again have greater still,
And greater still, and so on.

But, big or little, they are all overwhelmed by the incoming tide—
