Friday Flashback #046 …

The beach at Brighton in England was a revelation to me. While I knew of the existence of “pebble” beaches, I had never been on one before, so walking on this every-shifting pile of small rocks was a weird sensation, to say the least. The photo above shows the beach itself, facing the English Channel, and the insert shows the incredibly voluminous assortment of pebbles and stones that make up the shoreline. Some of them were so fascinating and beautiful, I had to bring them home … but just a few. Purely for science purposes, I assure you.

This majestic shot of the Turbine Hall in the Tate Modern Museum in London is one of my personal faves from my September/October 3-week sojourn to the UK in 2018. The Tate is a bit high-falutin’ for my taste (but I love their gift shops!), and it’s certainly an amazing structure and a great reusage of an old power plant. Regardless of how I feel about it, I do visit every time I go to London.

Merry Christmas, Everyone!

Today is the shortest day of the year and the official start of Winter, although it’s hard to believe that’s true here in San Diego. For those few that follow me–and/or peek in every once in a while–on here, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all. I had a great (and at times horrible) 2018, highlighted by the trip of the lifetime commemorated in the above image. I wish all of you the very best in 2019. I hope to have more of an online presence, including on this blog in the coming year. In the meantime (unabashed plug):

One thing I will definitely miss this year: my annual trip to New York City. I’ve gone to the Big Apple almost every year since 1971 (God, that’s almost 50 years now!). It started as a bus trip to go to comics conventions, but I quickly fell in love with the city outside the confines of a comics-filled hotel ballroom (I still love that, though). Here’s Gapstow Bridge in the southern part of Central Park, near the Plaza Hotel. It’s an amazing site for photos. I know I’ll get back to NYC soon … It just seems weird not making my usual fall pilgrimage.

Up in the air, somewhere … I’m guessing this is the approach to the Portland Airport on one of my trips “home” to visit the “mothership” (Powell’s Books). Portland is a little too quirky for me, but God, I LOVE that bookstore, and am totally fine going up just to visit that store once a year or so. I like taking photos from planes; I like the curve of the horizon, the patchwork grids of the ground, the texture of the mountains and–when you’re low enough–the water.
