A Transparent Building

Transparent Building?
This is one of the buildings right behind Ground Zero in New York City. It almost looks like you can see through it to the clouds on the other side.

Lines and Reflections

New York has more interesting angles and places to take pictures. Like this one in Times Square. I love following lines of sight and seeing reflections. But there's always something that makes it stand out- like the lamp post on the left. It appeard out of place- yet fits. The wonders of NYC.

Rough and Ready

Good old TR so proudly riding in front of the Museum of Natural History in New York City. Isn't it strange, though, that we erect these statues and monuments to honor our great heroes well aware of the fact that the mjor use will be by the birds?

This old open deck bridge sits near where Pine Creek and the West Branch of the Susquehanna River meet near Jersey Shore, Pennsylvania. The Bald Eagle Mountain the background is the northern point of the Appalachian Ridge and Valley section. To the north is the Allegheny Plateau. The wide, fertile valley at this point separates the two.

Torre del Oro- Seville

Seville- Torre del Oro
Sevilla is the heart of Andalucia. We had a wonderful trip there when our daughter was in school there. This is the Torre del Oro along the River. From Wikipedia:
The Torre del Oro (Spanish for "Gold Tower") is a military watchtower built in Seville, Spain during the Almohad dynasty in order to control access to the city via the Guadalquivir river. The tower may have received its name from the golden tiles which cover its dome and may have once adorned the rest of the tower.

Constructed in the first third of the 13th century, it has twelve sides, and from its base a chain would be stretched, underwater, across the river to another fort on the opposite shore, thereby preventing enemy ships from traveling upstream to the port of Seville.
