Dam Dusk

Another night shot todayor to be accurate, a dusk shot.

Atop the Devil's Gate Dam there's a bridge or to be accurate, the dam bridges the Arroyo Seco and one can walk across it, or ride a horse or bike. At dusk one might cross again, returning.

I'm keeping it short today. My schedule's full with auditions, play rehearsals and keeping up with regular life. I'm overwhelmedor to be accurate, I'm whelmed (but happily so).

Really do like this photograph. Dusk shots are often so beautiful. This is. Sounds as if life is good, albeit busy. Great!

I like this and the dam pun. Remember that Vacation movie with all the dam jokes,lol.

Petrea, you have such a distinctive eye, and the album of posts hangs together like a painter's exhibition. There really is a "petrean" vision of the world, that is marvelous to visit each day.

The glow of this lamp on the fence has a gentle moodiness to it. Just right.

Nice shot!... Nice atmosphere..

I love how the street lamp looks like a giant harvest moon.

And I'm pleased that your life is busy/whelmed.

Oooh this is such a fab shot, Petrea. So pleased you are in a play - I know you must be really busy right now. So - it's a very quick 'break a leg'! xxxx

Love the glow of the streetlamp! Busy and happy...it's a good thing!

It's the regular life that gets you, isn't it!! I'll be ready to get back to regular life next week when visiting and traveling are done. It has been fun though!

Love the dusk photo! Especially like the contrast between the beautiful old globe lamp and the harsh prison-like fence.

I'm with USElaine on this—it's a serene delight (as in serenade, a song of the evening). One of the best things in the shot is that angled brace, right of center.

Petrea said...

Thank you all, I'm glad you like the shot. It gives me a happy glow when I like one and you like it, too.

Yes, it's the "regular life" stuff that gets me, Christie! If all I had to do was auditions, rehearsals and blogging this would all be easy. It's staying organized that gets in the way. And I don't feel organized at all! But it's good to be busy, business has been absolutely mad. I'll be on a soap opera (Days of our Lives) on October 28th (USElaine will be doing laundry that day)--one scene, as a doctor. There've been so many auditions I hope to have more news for you, but you never know. I could score, I could miss. But it's fun to be busy.

Welcome Migs CFL fan! Always happy to see a new visitor.

Lynn, I love your new haircut.

USElaine, thank you for the kind words. "A petrean vision" there may well be, as there is an elainian one, and a marleyan, a jillyan, etc. The joy is in the constant attempts to express it. Merci, blog sister.

I love that Petrean vision. This is exquisite, Ms. P. I can't wait to look for you on Days of our Lives!

Petrea, this image is quite entrancing. The stark difference in style between the upscale light globe versus the prison flavor barbed wire fence is wonderful. Just add slightly skewed electric wires as counterpoint. Lovely!

Laurie and Chuck, when I get praise from you guys my head swells!
