This photo was taken at sunset. I thought the play of light and shadow was interesting. I also like how the wavy shapes of the palm fronds convey a sense of motion. You can almost see them swaying gently in the tropical breeze.
There are lots of cats at the Shelter too, all in their their own house to be safe from the dogs. When I walked in, these two looked pretty comfortable staked out in the window behind the door.
This is a view of the dam in Manchester, NH. It blocks off part of the Merrimack River and I think it's a really pretty scene in the autumn. Autumn remains my favorite time of the year in the northeast part of the US.
In the distance, you can see the tall buildings in the business section of the city.
This is a view from the shore of Battery Park in New York City. You cannot see it in this photo, but to the left is the Statue of Liberty.
There are so many interesting things to see in New York City. This pier for instance, if you look at the details in the architecture you can see it's quite old and a big contrast from the modern sky scrapers in the background. This contrast between historical and modern can be seen throughout the city.
Personally, I find the historical structures so much more interesting. However, it's also kind of a testament showing the constant change co-existing with what has endured for a century.

Even though the end of the pier is blocked off in an effort to stop people from jumping off the pier, it remains a very popular activity with the teenagers.
Well, my schedule has been off a bit lately as I've had family visiting for the last week. Sometimes, life is better spent away from the computer.
So Animal Monday is being posted today. This pretty potcake (mixed breed) is just relaxing in the shade of a doorway.
For the past few months, Abby has been giving me a hard time whenever I try to take family pictures. So, I shoot when I can, which means she's holding still long enough to focus - cheese doodle dust and fake rubber grapes included. Actually, I really like taking these kinds of pictures: just a kid being a kid.
Today's animal is a curly tail lizard. Although at the time, this one wasn't inclined to curl his tail. They're prevalent throughout the Bahamas, kind of our unofficial mascot. The lizards don't bother with people, but love to bother with all kinds of bugs. For that reason, I always welcome them in my home when they choose to visit.
Shepard Needles grow everywhere in the Bahamas. They resemble tiny daisies and have little black seeds in the center that stick to your clothes if you happen to walk through them. The plant is edible to numerous types of animals including goats, sheep and rabbits.

PS: It's pronounced konk. You can see the shell in the background.
