Capewell Horse Nail Co.


The 1900-vintage Capewell Horse Nail Co. building has been abandoned for decades.  
There is currently a proposal to spend $26 million to redevelop the structure into 72 apartments.

Here's hoping!

The September theme for City Daily Photo bloggers is "Rust and Ruin."
Please click here to see how other CDP bloggers have interpreted this theme.

Farewell to the Cape. See You Next Year.


Amazing sky Saturday night!  Low tide at First Encounter Beach.

I had to leave after this photograph so I wouldn't be late for dinner.

 If I could have waited ten minutes longer, the sky would have been cherry red
and the open water would have been royal blue.

Cape Cod


Sunset at First Encounter Beach.


Everyone should have good friends like Dick and Mary to visit
in their beautiful gray shingled home overlooking a marsh and the bay.

My Good Friend Nydia


Nydia, the Blind Girl of Pompei, is in the first gallery at New Britain Museum of Art.
Whenever I visit the museum, I take another photograph of her because the curators keep 
changing the artwork behind her.  In July she stood in front of a mirror-image
self-portrait by Provincetown artist Nancy Ellen Craig (1990).


 In August, it was an aerial nighttime view 
of London by Gabi Trinkaus, Lo Se Mo (2014).


A few days later I visited Boston's Museum of Fine Arts and visited again with Nydia.
Her surroundings are quite different.  And more formal.
There she stands before Niagara (1879) by William Morris Hunt.

The Annual Garden

The roses at Elizabeth Park were less gorgeous than usual this year,
but the annual garden has been wonderful.


I have taken numerous photos of the annual garden this summer, but none really showed
how pretty it was, so I didn't post many.  Until Monday, when the solution occurred.


Use a stepladder!

Mary Lou and Frank


Mary Lou and Frank have been friends for 65 years.  They were in the same social circle, went to the same dances, played cards and socialized.  Both lost their longtime spouses a few years ago.
Today Frank and Mary Lou are boy friend and girl friend.
I met them in Elizabeth Park.
Cute kids.
