Levee Wall

Hi Glenn,   this is very pleasing, close to symmetrical  horizontally and vertically, but not quite, just like natural objects are.    The Spanish abstract photographer/blogger Leovi receives many "comentarios" on his colorful posts, and one of the commenters once said "I like red".      So for your post today, "I like horizontal stripes".     thanks,   sp

And I so envy people who can get away away with "horizontal stripes" while I have to insist on vertical ;-)

I was struck by the simplicity of the scene with its juxtaposition of the three objects: the wall, the grass, and the sky. Later, the wall brought to my mind our burial vaults. That sure gave me some food for thought. A poet could maybe make something of that ... but I don't see much of ole Folse anymore ;-)

He responded today to a comment I made on Toulouse st. yesterday, which was really nice.   My ulterior motive was to entice him to look at my Fortin St. photos of last Thursday, but in any case I always like his writing so once in a while I make a comment there.   I figure, if Mark Twain had a blog, wouldnt you have written a comment on it, just because you could?

Ha! I cannot imagine myself ever having the temerity to leave a comment on Mark Twain's blog!

Sure you do, we all developed temerity after Katrina.

You know, you're right. I find myself standing up for things and doing things I never would have done before — I just don't realize I've got what it takes. Puts me in mind of those sentiments once expressed by a certain Cowardly Lion:

"What makes a King out of a slave?Courage!
What makes the flag on the mast to wave?Courage!
What makes the elephant charge his tusk, in the misty mist or the dusky dusk?What makes the muskrat guard his musk?Courage!
What makes the sphinx the seventh wonder?Courage!
What makes the dawn come up like thunder?Courage!
What makes the Hottentot so hot?
What puts the "ape" in apricot?What have they got that I ain't got?Courage!You can say that again!"

Great pic, Glenn! And great comments! (I was tempted simply to say "I like little pac-man ghost thingies!)  ;-)

Glenn said...

Thank you, Rick. You bring me back to the point of this whole thing, which is just a simple picture of a wall on grass with the sky above and behind it. I'm glad you like it ;-)
