When my wife saw this photo, she asked, "Is this a beach ball? Was there someone with it?"

A reasonable question … because, who else would be crazy enough to take a photo like this on the beach, in the pre-dawn darkness?

My answer: no, it’s a balloon. My impression, when I saw it, was that it had been washed up from a party that had taken someplace along the beach the night before.

Then my wife asked, in an email sent from NYC: "Did you play with the color??? It’s not blue, not purple, not lavender . . . unique."

Well, maybe I could lie to my Flickr friends, but not to my wife. So I answered, "Yeah, I played with the color …"

In fact, the original balloon was white, and could hardly be disrtinguished from the foam of the income wave. But in my own mind, I saw it as a slightly-purple, unique, color..

For the techies who care about such things: the original photo was processed and edited in Apple’s Aperture app. But then I exported it to a JPEG file, imported it into Adobe Photoshop Elements 13, read the relevant sections of Photoshop Elements 13: The missing Manual, by Barbara Bundage, and changed the color of the balloon. Not sure it was worth all that much work, but I like the final result…

So now you know the whole story.

Note: I chose this as my "photo of the day" for Feb 26, 2015.


I’m spending the winter months of 2014-2015 in a warm spot on the beach in Indialantic, FL (if I have Internet access, it doesn’t matter too much where I’m physically located).

I’m trying to get up about an hour before sunrise every morning, and be out on the beach for a morning walk just as the sun peeks up above the horizon.

On the very first morning, and every morning thereafter, I’ve immediately noticed that I was not the only person on the beach. There are joggers and walkers out getting their exercise, and *lots* of fishermen casting their lines out into the surf. But down by the 5th Avenue boardwalk — where you can park your car and get a cup of coffee/latte/whatever from the local Starbucks — there are lots and lots of people who clearly come down here just to watch the sunrise

These are some of the people…

On Christmas Eve, after a fourteen-hourtrain ride, Jerry appeared in my hospital roomlugging a large suitcase filled with our Christ-mas gifts (which included book ends, kitchenutensils and other weighty objects that shehad to haul back).

FOR seven years I followed a careerwhich paid well, not only in dollars, butin the exercise of my training andabilities and in recognition from my asso-ciates. It was a wonderful period andcould have been extended up an ascendingladder. And then along came a man who kicked theladder out from under me and won my signa-ture to a contract for matrimony. Why did Ido it? Why give up the exhilarating noveltyof dates with a variety of men and hindmyself to the monotony of one only? Whyforfeit a nice income, entirely my own, tobecome a charge on his? Why leave a snuglittle flat, whose care was the labor of theapartment-house maid, to take on all theplanning, cooking, serving and cleaning inseven rooms for a familv that has becomefive people?
