Postcards from the road: Philadelphia and Baltimore

Philly from moving train (top) and Baltimore from behind hotel windows (bottom). Work travel/presentations are exciting but oddly tiring...which may explain these crooked shots! :) Hope you've been well.

Rambling (updated)

Along the canal towpath, in the northeast corner of Princeton near Kingston Village. The gristmill ahead was rebuilt several times over the past 300 years; the current building dates from 1888. Enjoy your weekend!
Update: I forgot to say I'll be traveling for work next week. Be well, see you soon!

Tracing history: After the battle

"By this route Washington with his army retired to Morristown after his victory at Princeton January 1777." The route, Nassau Street, is still our main thoroughfare (2nd photo, street stretching into background) and follows an old Lenape Indian path.

W for...

Waikiki! Wait, that's across the world...woops...

What about a Dutch Wilkum sign (at our cheesemongers, one owner is Dutch)...

Or watermelon wear? Farmers market. (Thanks to this gentleman for posing!)

Thanks to Denise, Roger and team at ABC Wednesday.

Bright spot on a dark, stormy day

At Prospect House, a lunch canteen and former U.S. President Woodrow Wilson's home (previously shown here on a sunnier day).

Weekend explorations: Grand Central Terminal, New York

The grand concourse clock is a popular meeting and marriage proposal site; there's a secret staircase under the floor beneath. The once-sooty ceiling reveals the constellations (better view here).

After-work light

Nassau Street: No matter how long the day or rainy the week, a dose of after-work light makes up for it all! Enjoy your weekend.

Hong Kong-themed day

Mr. L was in Hong Kong briefly for work last week and sent these iPhone shots of Victoria Harbour. The giant rubber ducky ("Spreading Joy Around the World" by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman) heads to Pittsburgh next.

And two venturers enjoying a lazy day along the tow path, part of an 1830s canal turned park. Thanks to Denise, Roger and team at ABC Wednesday!

Rhododendrons and azaleas

They're past their peak, but better late (to post) than never! Apparently, rhododendrons have 10 or more stamens; azaleas have 5 or so. (Thanks for kind comments re: Mr. L's photo yesterday - hope it'll spur him to contribute more:)

Weekend explorations: ABC Carpet & Home, Manhattan

Manhattan's ABC Carpet & Home is 7 floors of home decor fantasy. Randomly, we ran into one of Mr. L's former London coworkers there (the coworker had relocated to New York). Top left shot by Mr. L.

Little fountain

In the town square, a welcome touch on warm nights. Toss a coin and make a wish! Enjoy your weekend.

At the quiet "welcome garden," Princeton Hospital. (I showed the interior here). Below, the garden sign.

Watching Princeton's annual alumni parade ("P-rade"), which drew 40,000 "tigers" back for Reunions. Below, a few mad scenes. (Last year's madness.)

Collage shots by Mr. L (I'm so impressed by that Class of '42 guy marching! It was 91F/33C!)

City Daily Photo Theme Day: The Beauty of Decay

This ought to be an image of my declining brain - until yesterday, I forgot June started today! But a fragile, falling-apart cobweb seems a more palatable image:)
Enjoy all City Daily Photo theme entries here!
