Fall color and llamas in Rhinebeck, NY

Starting where I left off, back in 2012 – where does the time go? We all know it goes down the drain, clockwise, if you live in the northern hemisphere. Or does it? In October 2012 we took a small-ish (for us) trip¬†to Rhinebeck, NY specifically for the queen to attend the New York State¬†Sheep […]

queen mum’s Turn You On tour

The Turn You On Tour of 2012. It’s all a blur now. The queen mum drove us to Ausable Forks on the Ausable river, the one that flows to Ausable Chasm all in an effort to find picture taking turn ons there and along the way. If you like the word ‘Ausable’, there ya go. […]

Christmas in July

Did you miss me? Of course you did. Your life is an empty hollow mass of nothingness without an update from moi. It’s not my intention to leave you in a puddle of your own drool staring at the wall ensconced in a vegetative state akin to a blight ridden eggplant, but hey, you’ll get […]

queen mum

From Vermont we crossed into New York on our journey up the Adirondack Northway to visit the queen’s mother **queue celebratory music like on Masterpiece Theater** – queen mum. You may bow or curtsy now. And don’t look at the queen mum. And don’t sneeze in front of the queen mum. And don’t flair your […]

The Big Duck of Long Island

Our little dock on the Sound was near the ferry to Long Island. I had a particular roadside attraction on my list for this trip but it all depended on how we felt about making a day of going over to Long Island. The decision was made. The day was sunny and crisp. So, let’s […]

The queen shops

Finished at our first stop on the Grand Whoosh Tour of NYC, we headed to lunch and to Pearl River Market back in Manhattan on Broadway. Before shopping, we needed to eat. Originally, I had planned to check out Mario Batali’s new gastro pub, The Spotted Pig. But, the duchess is a vegetarian. Oopsie. We […]

The Dinner Party

A few months before the Epic East Coast Duckapalooza Trip, I was reading up on Ana Mendieta, a Cuban American artist who worked mainly with natural material – dirt, grass, sticks, mud – to depict various ideas about life and death with an undercurrent of feminism. This led me to other feminist artists of the […]

On our second day with the duchess, we took the train into New York City for some museum hopping and lunching. Here is what we had planned (ok… it’s what I planned, I’m a planner, it’s what I do). The plan was to go to the Guggenheim, then to MOMA, then lunch, then shopping at […]

They’re everywhere

People, that is. Every freakin’ where. I enjoy shooting candid photos of people. I don’t look at the photos in the camera preview after taking them. Instead, I wait until I get home and hook the camera up to the ‘puter. Most of the pics are not so great because I’m trying to hide the […]
