I've been playing around a bit lately with
the macro lens for my phone.
This flower actually measures about an
inch and a half across.

I recently attended a christening service
(the two beautiful children of this couple), which
took place in the Gothic Revival Grace Church in
Brooklyn Heights. It was built in 1847/48
at a cost of $46, 737.52—which I suppose in those
days was a considerable chunk o' change.

Low tide under the Oceancrest Pier, on Oak Island, NC.
The water was very warm, yet I encountered few
people—and, fortunately, no sharks (they've been a
problem in the near-shore waters off the
Carolinas this past summer).

The lovely Medici Fountain, in the
Jardin du Luxembourg—a wonderful spot
to stop a while and reflect (!) on how
lucky I was to be in Paris on a
beautiful summer day.

I saw this baby blue T-bird parked in front of
my building recently. While one of my
neighbors and I were admiring it, the owner came
along and we were able to satisfy our curiosity:
It's a 2003 model, made to look like its '60s predecessor;
the roof is removable (though the owner never has
since he has no place to store it); the person who
owns this cool car is a hip grandpa who lives around the corner.

and for Grand Mosquée de Paris. There's a
wonderful café/restaurant there, and you can sit
in the colorful and comfortable garden and
enjoy a glass of mint tea—the real deal, poured with
a flair. (We also had couscous—yum.)
