In early November, while I was in the U.S. on vacation, in my sleep, I saw an apparition. "You will be granted one request", the apparition said. "Take me to my people" I replied. "Israel?" the apparition asked. "No, Miami Beach" I implored..........et VOILA:
Please excuse my corny old jokes.You can take the boy out of New York, but you can't take New York out of the boy, or something like that. Anyway, the apparition missed by 100 miles and I wound up in West Palm Beach, but that's another story.
And since I'm back in Paris it seems like I'm living in the Arctic Circle. Daybreak at 8:30, sunset at 4:30 and just barely enough rays of sun to give me some hope so that I don't consider jumping off my first floor balcony.
So I thought that this being the last photo blog of the year we could dig out our old spring and summer photos and have a "Spring and Summer Blue Sky" section, to give us all hope for the coming spring. All this in addition to our "Photos as Usual" section.
So there it is. But wait! It's not the last photo blog of the year. A Guest Blogger has stepped up and has volunteered to do a Special Solstice Edition next Friday which happens to fall on December 21. It's Loefing, one of my fellow American expatriates in Paris. Jeez, Friday Photography Blog has a Guest Blogger. It feels like it's daily kos. (I must not let this go to my head!) Anyway, be nice to Loefing, it's his first time.
And Happy Holidays to all!
