DC Photo / Leaving Town

Blogs or Posts, More Photos

That was really some crazy weather last night, wasn’t it? Our prayers go out this morning to all the folks who found themselves in the paths of the 78 or so tornadoes that ripped through the land. Betsy’s mom spent the night in the hospital but seems to be better this morning and hopefully will be coming home after lunch. So things were a little crazy around here too.

I was trying to find a photo for today’s post and for some reason settled on this one.





Why this photo? I don’t know. Let’s try and figure it out. We have a large, impersonal building. A bureaucratic paradise. And the signs are pointing the way out of town. So this is may be an escape of sorts. There’s one person in the photo and he’s waiting for something (possibly a ride). There’s a tube prominently situated in the street with steam coming out of it and a caution fence in front of it. All the traffic signals are red.
So what’s happening here? I’m still not seeing it.  Does it mean anything to you?

Snow In Virginia At The University Of Richmond

Blogs or Posts, D's Photos, The University of Richmond



On Saturday it snowed  and gave Virginians a little thrill for a moment. It wasn’t anything to write home about but, then, it didn’t tie up traffic or dismember the electrical grid either. Around five pm I happened to glance out the window and noticed a large cloud colored in a particularly attractive shade of dark blue. So, I raced upstairs, grabbed the camera and headed over the the U where I was greeted with a nice sunset (and some brilliantly cold air). It only lasted a few moments but it provided a couple photo opportunities. And I thought it would be nice to share them with you!

University of Richmond and “snow”…

To see the Summer Sky
Is Poetry, though never in a Book it lie –
True Poems flee.
~Emily Dickinson

I am the daughter of Earth and Water,
And the nursling of the Sky;
I pass through the pores of the ocean and shores;
I change, but I cannot die….
~Percy Bysshe Shelley, “The Cloud”
