Not all “henges” are made of stone.

The way things were

By Silver Blue

I’ve posted this photo before, in a time when I wasn’t doing much photo manipulation. This was taken in February 2007 in the backwoods of North Carolina.

Silver Blue, who thinks so many places crumble before being captured by camera….

On wind and waves…

By Silver Blue

This photo was taken at the base of a bridge in Tappahannock, VA, in the summer of 2012. I call it “On wind and waves…” because the birds seem equally at home on either.

Tidewater Virginia

By Silver Blue

…has two seasons. Winter, and Summer. It’s either freezing cold, or scalding hot. Rare that we get a spring or an autumn.

Because of this (and because we had ice/sleet last week, and upper 80s this week), I decided to share a nice lazy day from Virginia Beach.

Silver Blue, who’d like to be soaking up some rays, and losing this headache.

Silver Blue, who knows far too well how history is rewritten, glossing over the bad parts.

Give me one more chance on the midway…

By Silver Blue

….let me dance with my feet off the ground…give me back the world I remember, one more ride on the merry-go-round.*

The hand-carved carousel formerly of the Buckroe Beach Amusement Park (1921-1985). Now housed in downtown Hampton.

I love Paris…

By Silver Blue

….in the Springtime.

I was 13 years old. Paris was beautiful, and to my eyes (and my Kodak 126 camera), there just wasn’t enough time (or film) to be able to capture all the memories I wanted to.

Silver Blue who reminds you to make every moment count.

Stoke the fire, would you?

By Silver Blue

Oh, I guess you’d have to have levitation powers to do that.
