  1. What a nice lighhouse picture! Even without seeing it, you can imagine the lake and the incredible view from the lighthouse.

  2. Thanks Ellen, I'm glad you like it. This little old lighthouse is located near the 5th & 6th photos on the post about Palm Sunday. sp

  3. I've come back several times to this photo -- although there is no water visible, it exists in the color of the sky and worn paint of the lighthouse itself. A visual metaphor for the water that must exist nearby or the existence of the lighthouse would be in question.

    It's poetry.

    Thank you for this, Sussah.

  4. Dear T., wonderful to hear these lovely statements from you! It's on the south shore of Lake Ponchartrain, near the Univ. of New Orleans. There is water nearby, pretty much everywhere down here, too much sometimes as you know. The city has a love/hate relationship with bodies of water. For example, bumper-stickers would say "Save our Lake" and others would reply "Pave our Lake", etc. And at the moment, nobody envies the job of the engineers making decisions about opening the river spillways. I'm glad you like the photo, keep in touch. thanks, sp
