A Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II, from around 1962, that just happened to be in the neighborhood. R-Rs first blipped onto my radar screen in the mid 60’s via the television show Burke’s Law. This car reminds me of our family car back then – a 1951 Dodge (and really I understand your amusement). That Dodge was one of the first automobiles I photographed, with a Kodak Instamatic, my first ever camera.

Revisited this series – one was posted in October of last year – just can’t get enough of Island Pond and the Northeast Kingdom, granted, from the warmth of a wood heated living room in southern New England.

Nice to see this Tricolored Taegeuk on the side of an old Yankee barn, deep in the heart of VT. It’s probably Korean, but derived from the earlier yin/yang symbol that has its origins in China and Taoism. The yellow, red and blue lobes (“pa” in Korean) represent humanity, earth and heaven respectively (which kinda covers it, no?).

Evidence, Chesterfield, NH

We share our home on this earth with a vast number of creatures large and small,* who occupy all sorts of ecological niches around us.

Beavers – that’s their handiwork above – favor living around streams and marshes, and are second only to man for their ability to manipulate the environment.** They’re mostly nocturnal animals, though you might see one swimming around a pond in the late afternoon. More info on these mammals here.

This fallen white birch was probably 20 feet from a marsh, and 30 feet of so from a stream.

* The Vedas, the most ancient of Hindu scriptures, describe 8.4 million species of life on the planet.

Stone Steps, Wilmington, VT

There’s many a soundtrack for this one, but I’ve been revisiting Running Up That Hill, recorded by the incomparable Kate Bush in 1985. There’s a fine version here with David Gilmour, with some wonderful glances betwixt Kate and the other musicians toward the end.

The photo was taken some two decades ago, with my 6×7 film camera. The steps are still there but hardly visible now with all the overgrowth, even in the winter months. Proficiscitur in tempore (time marches on).
