Stairs and buoys

Tuesday was a rainy day, but a productive one. I got my eyes examined and ordered three pairs of new glasses. I will be able to see clearly now. My old prescription was too old. We also did a bit of shopping that we wanted to do. And we successfully avoided the road closures surrounding President Obama's visit to Albany.

I think the buoys were lobster pot markers. Now they're decorating this courtyard.

Photographically speaking, we're still looking at pictures from Rockport, Massachusetts. These are a bunch of old buoys leaning up against a colorful stairway.

Tonight we're heading out to dinner with a fellow blogger, his husband, and fellow Facebook friends in Troy, NY, just up the Hudson River from Albany. We're looking forward to seeing them all!


  1. I'm glad you got your eyes examined. Now, on to that head of yours.
    Enjoy your dinner!

  2. Great photo-- I love the colors and the framing. You've got an eye, boy! (and new clear vision!)

    Enjoy dinner -- I hope we'll sic pictures :)

  3. I know I have said it before, but I admire & am stirred by your photography... you are a first class artist. Love this shot!

  4. With new glasses and clear eyes, I can't wait to see the new photos.

    Terrific that you are meeting new blogging friends in person. You must be excited!

  5. Great photo. The old boys hanging around stairways in our town are not as cute as that !!

  6. I love those old wooden buoys. I brought one back from Maine when I was there last year or so. Great picture!

  7. Nothing like a bunch of boys to lift the spirits, eh? Oh....those buoys. Never mind.

  8. mark, that's a whole 'nother can 'o worms...

    judy, I don't have my new glasses yet... they'll be ready next week!

    stephen, flattery will get you everywhere! Thanks!

    mary, it's always fun to meet blogger friends. The internet has connected us to so many people we might never have know otherwise.

    jean, LOL!

    scott, cool. I wish I had room in my bags for one!

    starman, hahahahaha!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
