NEW from Seneca River Walk -

"Harbor Master"
manipulated digital photograph by Mick Mather
"... I must down to the seas again,
to the vagrant gypsy life,
to the gull's way and the whale's way
where the wind's like a whetted knife;
and all I ask is a merry yarn
from a laughing fellow rover,
and quiet sleep and a sweet dream
when the long trick's over ..."
- John Edward Masefield

I had to memorize that poem back in the days of free love and rebellion.

It was the end gasp of teaching ala fifties.

...a star to steer her by"

I often wonder if I'm still steering by a star. :)

I've been heavily influenced by the likes of monkeyinfez
and many of the posts one can find at Woolgathersome.
So, if you like mine, you're going to like theirs ... if you haven't done so already, have a peek at both of those blogs.

This is wonderful. I love the dark area at the top and the light at the bottom and the dark pole with the light coloured head of the bird.. That little piece of light on the top of the pole gives the whole thing that lovely cylndrical shape. A beautiful work Mick!
