Horse Show at Chubb Park in Chester Township, New Jersey. Chester is not far from where the US Equestrian team trains. By Paul Goldfinger.  Click image for full view.  Reposted.


Paul Goldfinger, Editor, Blogfinger.net. 10/3/23.

This photograph shows the gentle and elegant sport of horses and all the rituals, postures, clothing and casual styles of these aficionados blended with the formality of it all.

When we lived in Chester, we often saw “horse people” (usually women) shopping or walking around town in their special clothes. I like the black coats and hats on these riders.

That’s why I chose Gato Barbieri’s “Girl in Black”  (Para mi Negra) — a tango by the jazz saxophonist  (b. 1934 in Argentina) who wrote the incredible score for film The Last Tango in Paris with Marlon Brando.

This song seems to fit for this photo. Argentina is horse country, and the tango is very  sexy.

Do you see any of that in this  photo?  How do those riders get out of those pants anyhow?

Guadalajara school kids. Award winning photograph by Paul Goldfinger. ©


By Paul Goldfinger, MD, FACC.   Editor Blogfinger.net


Perhaps you are wondering why I was in Guadalajara instead of  Acapulco or Puerto Vallarta.  Guadalajara is the capital  of the state of Jalisco, in the Pacific western region. It is a fine city with great restaurants, shopping and friendly people; and it is also the home of the Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara: UAG School of Medicine, where many Americans attend medical school.

I was a visiting professor (cardiology) there and I got to lecture in a large auditorium with a glass booth high up in the back where they did simultaneous translation. That was good for me, because my Spanish was limited to a few phrases like, “Mas Dos Equis por favor” (which means, “Another ‘Two X’s‘ beer please”).  I had reason to suspect those translations because, when I launched a one-liner, only the Americans laughed — they were the ones without earphones. Maybe it’s about how you tell a joke.

In the photo, I approached a group of school kids, and they immediately morphed into the Marx Brothers. This is one of my favorite photographs and it was published.

Guadalajara is where mariachi music was invented. It is fun and lively, but when you are in that area, it seems like wherever you go, the mariachi follow. “Jalisco, Jalisco” is, of course, played a lot in that city.

Moonrise.   By Paul Goldfinger  © Click to enlarge. Hudson River Valley.


By Paul Goldfinger.  Editor Blogfinger.net. Ocean Grove, NJ.  Re-post from September, 2012 on Blogfinger.


Today, the glow of the moon, of the moonrise, or the moon over the ocean, or over the river….makes me think of Andy Williams.

I  first listened to his new song, “Moon River,” playing on my car radio one night in 1961. That evening I was alone in my old Plymouth driving home from a date with my future wife, Eileen.  I knew that “Moon River” had to be our song.

When I called the band leader for the wedding, he had never heard of the song, but he promised to look into it. And he did.  I always suspected that Eileen and I were among the first  to choose that song.

Johnny Mercer wrote the lyrics, and Henry Mancini the music. It was very beautiful, but I never exactly knew what a “huckleberry friend” was;  somehow I imagined I knew what kind of friend that was.

Today I finally looked it up, and the Urban Dictionary says, “There are your good friends: people who love you. And then there are your huckleberry friends: people who’ve known you for years and have stuck by you and love you no matter what.”Here are some of the lyrics from that  song whiich  was featured in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s:


“There’s such a lot of world to see
We’re after the same rainbow’s end, waitin’ ’round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me”
