What we have here is a 2012 downtown girl.

That doesn’t mean that she is a “Downtown Girl” like in the song below by Hot Chelle Rae from Nashville. Their downtown girl has red lips and “those hips are turning heads.” — PG

DAVE’S TRUE STORY.  “Blue Moon.”  From the movie Jack Goes Boating:

Anna is a sometime Ocean Grover and a fan of Blogfinger.   She is a retired photojournalist who responded to our offer to submit her work  to us.    Of this image, she said, “I am including a photo I took at the Nous Theater, Blairstown,on opening night,  looking down the hall toward the lobby, with brilliant orange and reds accented with deep blue drawing patrons through the theater . The colors struck me and I love the almost painterly quality of the photo.”

We think it is wonderful also,  with its strong use of colors and perspective. We hope to post some more of Anna’s work.

Thank you, Anna.

This prehistoric monument is from about 3000 bc, (before cooking) and is in Wiltshire, England. Back then they would put up crepe paper and hold proms there, long before slow dancing was invented. Paul Goldfinger photo ©

This prehistoric monument is from about 3,000 BC, (before cooking) and is in Wiltshire, England. Back then they would hold proms there, long before slow dancing was invented.  Archeologists can carbon date some doo wop songs back to that time.   Paul Goldfinger photograph ©  (Taken before they built the fence to keep out NJ tourists.)  Re-post from 1/17 on BF.

Took a little ride yesterday on my motorcycle to the Van Sant Airport…. or…maybe I just got in the time machine again and pushed the back button! These guys were having a blast!

Micanopy #2.  Downtown.   Paul Goldfinger. December,2017. Central Florida historic town. ©

This was a Seminole village when a New York developer bought thousands of acres in the vicinity for sugar crops in 1821 and established the first Florida town in the interior of the state.  In recent years it became a town where “hippies and artisans “lived and worked.  Now it is a lovely place that attracts visitors mostly for its architecture and antiquing.

One owner of a fine antique shop told us that the antique business is in decline. “Young people are not interested in collecting, and children don’t want their parents’ stuff.”

This town has a historical society, a few cafés, some admirable old homes, and a hotel.  But not many folks seemed to live in town.  If the tourists stop shopping, what will happen to this place? The owner didn’t seem to know.

This is one of my favorite photographs, and Diana Krall’s “White Christmas”  is also very special. And so is the Christmas season where sleigh bells ring—are you listening?

Christmas music can be monotonous after awhile in December, but so much great music is about Christmas, so I like to post it out of season to show its uniqueness. It’s like the jewelry store principle:  just take one diamond out at  a time and show it by itself on black velvet in a light that makes it glow  —– PG from OG


“The White Night” Central Park, Christmas Eve, 1932. By Adolph Fassbender   Re-posted from Blogfinger. 2014.

This photograph is from the January 27, 1997 issue of the New Yorker magazine. It was part of a photography exhibit review featuring the work of Adolph Fassbender (1884-1980). He was an artist who followed the romantic painterly Pictorialist style of photography long after it fell into disfavor around 1915. The quote below is from the New Yorker piece about this image. The title of the  article was “Slow Dazzle.”   —PG

” ‘The White Night,’ made on Christmas Eve, 1932, in Central Park, during a late-afternoon blizzard, is one of the highlights of the Fassbender show opening this week at Gallery 292, in SoHo. The buildings on the Plaza were invisible but for a faint glow; the artist got off just one three-and-a-half-minute exposure before his shutter froze. Out of raging wind and snow he coaxed this woolly, lamplit nocturne — a tribute not to speed but to contentment and rest. Photograph shows a path in Central Park covered with snow, bordered by bare black branches, and buildings in the distance with lighted windows seen through mist.”
