I have a whole collection of pictures I take of my son the moment I tell him how expensive modern art is, ...the type of art you can make in 3 minutes.

Here he's watching a white square called "Ledger" by Robert Ryman, valued maybe at $20.000.000

must be gold in the frame?
That's probably it!
Teach him the historical context of art if you don't want him to grow up to be one of those idiots who "don't like Pollock".

We free up time to go to museums, it's a running joke :D

I don't know about your experience, but in my family there was always an insistence on serving it with onions. As in, there is one way to serve this fish, which in retrospect just doesn't feel right.

The Rights of Spring

(Like The Bill of Rights)

1) Long drives in the countryside

Snowy Egret Series

Watched this egret fishing for awhile - first from about 10 meters away

and then I slowly moved closer and closer ...

Until he saw me - !

Photos wound up in reverse order but you get the idea.

Do the Rights of spring involve protection from the Rites of Spring?

There might be something like the "Right of Self Determination" w/r/t the Rites of Spring. ;)

Some might feel they need protection and others will want to dance wildly around the May pole!

Thanks on the photos.  I might put up a few more from today's adventure later on.

And what about the wrights of springs? For surely their coiled products can put a bounce in our step befitting the season.

or playwrights of spring!

“Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May....”

LOL

Well enough of that Bardic nonsense (you can find all the Sonnets you want by yourselves!)

But a few more pictures before I go. :)
