Blog Note

The frigid weather has meant going out a lot less and also the people one encounters when out are bundled up more (and likely wearing anti-Covid masks), meaning much less expressive. As a result, I’m out of new pictures again, so it’s back to the archives for now…

Riverside Park, New York

Taken in the summer of 2008 (and sorry about the copyright overlay) in a brief summer deluge of a shower, this has been one of my most popular images over the years.

Bird Girl Irony

This “bird girl” statue used to be in the Bonaventure cemetery when it was photographed by Jack Leigh and used on the cover of the hugely popular book, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, by John Berendt.

As a result of it’s fame, the grave site was overrun with tourists so the statue was removed and now stands in a room at the Telfair Academy in Savannah in front of a wall-sized mural of the cemetery background so you can take a photograph of it just like the one on the cover of the book.
