    • Thank you. A few of these were previously published in color, but this morning B&W called out to me.

  2. Love the abstracts! Is the X a piece of the World trade centre?

    • I don’t believe the X is WTC.

  4. Oh, Ron! That tire swing brings back sooooo many childhood memories. I strive to keep the peace and calm in my life that a rope and a piece of rubber can bring such joy. You know? I am twisted, but I REALLY didn’t mean that sentence to come out that way. LOL! My life is better for having had a tire swing in it! (#ThatsBetter)

    • You are not twisted at all, and smart enough to write code too.

  5. Like the giant X. I suppose one would mark it as an “X” on a map. :)

    Great shots – love the tones and contrast. “Art Car Museum” is especially nice.
