Can't remember if it was Robert or John who, the last time I posted old tombstones, noticed how they looked like ghosts. So, Boo Y'all!!

These were on the doorstep where I stayed at while in Provincetown.

Provincetown has a working harbor. With lots of boats on the bay side. And the main part of town is just yards away from this scene.

Almost back to the path, still on the dune side of the hill and autumnal. Too bad my health insurance doesn't cover my visiting Massachusetts.

One last image of the Provincetown dunes with the Atlantic Ocean on the horizon. If you closely at the bottom right section, you can see my footprints that I followed to get back to the path where I started from.

Monday, October 26, 2009

Same dune hill off in the distance, then a little closer but still far away.

Sunday, October 25, 2009

Because it is so beautiful, here's distance shot of the big dune I posted yesterday. I was standing on a ridge with a valley hidden between us.

Saturday, October 24, 2009

This picture almost makes me cry. It was so beautiful here as the wind was blowing and I was frozen and it was too a big hill for me to climb.

Friday, October 23, 2009

This what was to the left when I came out of the steep, narrow path and before I saw what was on the other side of the ridge. Those, by the way, are serious trees, not bushes along the edge of a beach. What struck me was how massive it is. I was there by myself and thankfully it was all sand and I left distinct footprints to find my way back to the main path or who knows what would have happened.

As I came out of the trees on the steep path, I discovered myself in this enormous field of dunes. Hills, yes, very high ones, but made of sand.

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

After I finished walking around the lake, I went back to the blacktop that lead north to the ocean. But this steep narrow path caught my attention and I decided to see where it went. Tomorrow, wait for it!

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

The lake itself, surrounded by sand, the ocean is 1/4 of a mile away.

Monday, October 19, 2009

I remember that while I walking between the red path above and those roots below feeling like I was having a profound religious experience.

More of the Provincetown woods path. Surprised you guys are not commenting, because I love these. Maybe I'm too much of a city girl.

Saturday, October 17, 2009

A little fence at the top of a hill and the steps going down to the path.

A couple of shots of trees around the lake in the Provincetown woods.

Thursday, October 15, 2009

I spent a couple hours walking through the woods in Provincetown, I took over 100 shots in an area around a pond there, some of which I'll be sharing with you during this week. Hope you all enjoy the scenery.

Back the bay side of Provincetown, those sunny beach scenes were the ocean side of town. That horizon in the distance is North Truro. Right behind me are the backs of the buildings that run along its main street.

Provincetown in late autumn. Let's just savor it for a moment, shall we?

Monday, October 12, 2009

Okay, tell the truth, don't you want to be here right now? Even if it's really cold? With all those puffy little clouds scuttling by? Nobody else there but a few intrepid gulls and an occasional boat way off on the horizon. This is the time of year the big whales come around, although I didn't get see any of them. Next time, because I like to think there will be a next time. Or maybe I'll just get to go live there.

Sunday, October 11, 2009

I don't suppose you can tell how cold it was here when I was taking these pictures. It was me and the seagulls, and for a little while one lonely fisherman. I had on my gloves and a hat and a heavy quilted leather coat and I was still freezing. Sort of a battle between the hot bright sunshine and the cold biting wind. Didn't care, said Pierre, it was much too beautiful to do any complaining.

This is the garden at the bed and breakfast I was at in Provincetown, this particular day it was raining. Everything was slippery and wet, oh, and gloriously gorgeous. I sent them one of these for their website and they sent me a shot of them standing in front of the place in a foot of snow. Very pretty. I might have to break down and go back there this winter, it was all so beautiful.

Friday, October 9, 2009

This is my room at the place I stayed in Provincetown. It was dark by five and chilly so the fireplace was ideal. I could have lived there. Great modern bathroom, a TV on the dresser, a comfy chair by the window, but no kitchen. They served breakfast of course, which also was where I got my lunch for later. I sent images which are now on their website.

Did you know the pilgrims landed first in Provincetown before getting back on the Mayflower and sailing forth to Plymouth Rock? They were there for 5 weeks. Too precarious I suppose, it is a little strip of land, but that tall turret to the right of the frame is part of their monument.

Definitely not New York, which I am so sick of at the moment, this is Provincetown in October, my favorite place to be this time of the year. Hope you like it, because we are going to be visiting there for a while.

Tuesday, October 6, 2009

I got laid off today, in spite of closing $40,000 in sales in the last few weeks and taking deposits for another $30,000. Not a happy camper, and will not need to walk home by the river from Chelsea anymore. So, in honor of this momentous occasion, here's an ominous sunset photo.

Monday, October 5, 2009

Okay, so we've been here before, the ever popular Erie-Lackawanna in the distance as I walk downtown. But look, it's dark before 7PM, and you can see how chilly and windy it is by how choppy those waves are.

Sunday, October 4, 2009

Another shot from a chilly walk downtown, it was so windy the image is a bit blurry. The big W was especially red that evening. The fever I had passed and the opening went well, I'm happy to report people are definitely buying art at the gallery again. Granpa, the crops are saved!

Friday, October 2, 2009

This is what it looked like at 6:30 yesterday, too early for it to be this dark. A little cold for this time of the year as well. Don't like it. Feel a bit feverish, not good since we have a major opening tomorrow night.

Thursday, October 1, 2009

Look what's almost finished, when I walked by last night, they were putting glass in the bottom floors so the patchwork windowpanes are nearly done. I like all the scattered windows on this side too. Probably easier to live with. That blue grill is the top of Bayview jail for women.
