Less than an hour prior to sunset.

I have posted more shots from my iPhone than from my digital SLR this year. I have enjoyed the ad hoc nature of this camera, which I always have in my pocket. This evening I was struck by the beautiful cast of the sunlight upon my garden just prior to the sunset. I chose several shots for this post.

Undoing the Damage Sandy hath Wrought on Ocean City New Jersey beaches.

Your man from Philly went down to the Shore yesterday to spend a night in a historic B&B in Ocean City, NJ with his better half. Bulldozers and dredges were working 24 hours a day, lit by stadium lights. The resurrection of the beaches will likely be complete by Memorial Day. Through Hurricanes and Nor’easters, the Jersey shore has always managed to come back. Sandy couldn’t deliver the knockout punch. She’s gotten up before the ten count. The resilience of her people is amazing!

I’m silently saying a prayer for the loved ones of those who were victims of a truly horrendous tornado that hit Moore, Oklahoma yesterday. To the people of Moore, I know many hearts are with you. Most of us have no idea of the heartbreak and anguish you must be going through.
