WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: WISH

Jen H. of WordPress says show us a wish, and let your blog be the ema upon which you share it.

 

Have you seen the sidewalk on Library Way in NYC?

If you haven’t, on your next trip to the New York Public Library on Fifth Avenue, walk along 41st Street. You’ll have a perfect view of the building (look up) and plenty of inspirational quotes about reading, writing, and literature (look down) along the way.

Garson Kanin’s most famous quote, from his hit play “Born Yesterday,” is there on the sidewalk.

Garson Kanin, who broke into show business as a saxophone-playing high school dropout and went on to write ”Born Yesterday,” direct ”The Diary of Anne Frank” and become the co-writer of two classic Tracy-Hepburn movies, died at his home in Manhattan in 1999.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: CHERRY ON TOP

The cherry on top.

Or, as the straightforward folks at Oxford Dictionaries explain it, “a desirable feature perceived as the finishing touch to something that is already very good.”

Oodles of lessons and hours of practice and the drone of the metronome.

Ah, but that cherry.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: STATE OF MIND

Ben H says that every photo we take says something about our emotions at the moment of taking it. So this week, he invites us to share an image where we see a particularly strong connection between what we see and what we feel as we press that shutter button.
