IN REMEMBRANCE: 9/11

I wanted to post something for TODAY:

And I also thought that FDR’s full quote was appropriate to Remember:

“So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is…fear itself — nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance. In every dark hour of our national life a leadership of frankness and of vigor has met with that understanding and support of the people themselves which is essential to victory. And I am convinced that you will again give that support to leadership in these critical days.”

A Quiet Tribute

As  student of Art History, and a practicing religious person, I was devastated by the Fire at Notre Dame.  No, I’m not Catholic, but I revere ALL sacred places of ALL Religions.

I’m not at home, so I don’t have much that I can post at this moment.  But I Love Gothic Architecture.  When I had a chance to live in England, I visited all the famous Cathedrals that I could get to during my short stay.  So I post a Quiet Tribute from Wells Cathedral.  A gem that you should try to see if you are in western England

And what I am going to do this summer is scan all of my best English Cathedral images (Old ECN-II Transparencies) and Post Them!

Changing Themes……..

My Personal Vision class is drawing to an interesting close.  So we are going to change themes here to reflect the final project I am supposed to produce.  Some Images that I might use have already been posted.  But there are two major ideas that seem to repeat themselves:  Light and Ascending Stairs.  So for the rest of the month I will be posting the ‘final cut’ images for the project.  Comments Appreciated!  Or simply ‘like’ the image if you agree that it makes the final cut…….

I looked back into my photo archives to find this image from 1990.  The first time I photographed an ascending staircase that has special meaning for me.    I decided that this must be where it all began:
