Ta Da!!! Post 400, too much rain to shoot, but this oldie works for me.

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

Manhattan, wet and chilly. My 399th post, what I'll post tomorrow?

Monday, March 29, 2010

Last of the Beacon images I have for you, hope you enjoyed the visit.

Saturday, March 27, 2010

Still here, must have been a false alarm, another DIA:Beacon garden.

Friday, March 26, 2010

Still here, still at DIA:Beacon, we'll just see what tomorrow brings.

Thursday, March 25, 2010

So, I hope the message saying I was going to be dropped from this site tomorrow's a mistake, but if I am, it's been fun. I'll try to be back soon.

Same Serra sculpture as yesterday, another angle, just as beautiful.

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Since I don't know if I'll be here after the 26th because of the message I got about technology changes, I wanted to hurry up and show you the inside of this Serra sculpture at DIA:Beacon which made me cry. They also forbid cameras and followed me around, so this is a secret, okay?

Another DIA:Beacon garden shot. I just got notification about losing my connection with this blog, did anyone else get that? Now what?

Sunday, March 21, 2010

The reason people go to Beacon is not the scenic waterfalls but to visit DIA:Beacon which, if you like contemporary artwork, is amazing. The museum is huge, as is the art, but there are also magnificent gardens.

Saturday, March 20, 2010

Same steeple the next morning with the Hudson and Catskills beyond.

Friday, March 19, 2010

All of the Beacon pictures so far were taken on the same day, this was the last from that afternoon. Picked up takeout Mexican and then had a tv feast in my room after taking the series this is from as the sun set.

Thursday, March 18, 2010

This on Main St in Beacon, could be anywhere, very Edward Hopper.

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

Okay, one last shot of the Beacon waterfalls, check out those rocks.

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

Still Beacon, here's the water moving gently through a flatter area.

Monday, March 15, 2010

Okay, maybe yesterday's shot wasn't so scary, but check this one out.

Sunday, March 14, 2010

The bridge beyond the abandoned factory buildings I've been showing you crosses over one of the places where the falls are dramatic. To the point that I was a bit afraid to stand where I'd get a good picture of it.

Saturday, March 13, 2010

Closer shot of the yesterday's wall, love all those textural elements.

Friday, March 12, 2010

Around the corner of yesterday's ruin was this white wall of windows.

Thursday, March 11, 2010

Across the street, still on the same side of the bridge, is another cluster of abandoned buildings that have been taken over by an art collective, which had hung paintings in some of the windows when I went there.

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

Finally! I've been trying to post this photograph for over an hour. It is the far end of the complex from the past few days, and yes, it is round.

Tuesday, March 9, 2010

More windows with a view of the collapsed roof in yesterday's post.

Monday, March 8, 2010

As you can see, this roof had collapsed behind the brick walls, but I couldn't tell if the tree was in back or growing inside of the building.

Sunday, March 7, 2010

Some sealed up windows in the complex of abandoned mill buildings.

Saturday, March 6, 2010

Let the ruins revue begin, we'll be looking at this cluster of buildings for a while, the railing to the right is a bridge over some of the falls.

Friday, March 5, 2010

Here's a closeup of the ruins from Wednesday. More ruins to come.

Thursday, March 4, 2010

Although this isn't the most upstream of the falls, it is as far as I went.

Wednesday, March 3, 2010

In Beacon's heyday, there were a number of mills that utilized a series of waterfalls that lead down to the Hudson river. I was told the water was often full of color from the dyes being used on fabrics they made.

Tuesday, March 2, 2010

This would be Bailey, who befriended me during my stay at the inn.

Monday, March 1, 2010

Side garden next to the inn at Beacon in the summer afternoon sun.
