|The Blue Lantern|
Tuesday, September 21, 2010
'A' and I went for a walk in the dark tonight. This is always a bit challenging in Rockport where sidewalks can be either rather narrow or very uneven...or both. This seems to be mostly on Main Street. And mostly on the busiest traffic section of Main Street. Add to that the scarcity of street lights and the glare of oncoming headlights. Challenging. Tonight, as we walked back up the hill a brisk headwind was added to the rest of it. The plus side of late season, nighttime walking is that there are no tourists to avoid. I don't think we saw more than a half dozen people in our 2 mile walk. One of those was Policeman Bob collecting the meter money. I like playing around with taking flash photos in the dark of night. Looking for possible good subjects and then taking a semi-calculated aim. You just never know what you'll end up with. At night a blue lantern can turn white.
