This version of Chalk Scribblings, while it will remain posted, is now closed for business.

Please find the new, improved Chalk Scribblings at :

I was just getting a bit frustrated with the limitations for displaying photos here.

This new site is much better, methinks.

Top of the Rock

The view from the Top of the Rockefeller Centre was incredible. I'm definitely taking Gabi there upon my return to the Big Apple next month.

Where is the church in my life these days?

St. Patrick's Cathedral, 5th Avenue, NYC.

What I'm listening to : The wheeze of my breathing with this rotten cold. I hate summer colds.

Staring Down the Barrel of a Gun

This shot of the statue "Non-Violence" was taken at the UN.

What I'm listening to : nothing, everyone else is asleep. The Depeche Mode song is running thru my head, however.

I chose this one first because I could not get this statue out of my mind.

Mama Bird

My brother has a nest built under his deck. I was pleased with the shot, considering it's through glass.

Luckily, there aren't many cats in the neighbourhood.

Grumpy Old Man

My grandfather used to be a crossing guard. Right near McGregor Arena, on Lawrence. There's a traffic light there now. This is his stop sign, or what's left of it, anyways. Still going strong, and he's been gone for a good 13 years now, and wasn't a crossing guard for a long time before he passed.
He was a grumpy old man, but he was always all right to me. I remember the poplar whistles he used to whittle, and how he used to love just puttering around the cottage lot.
What I'm listening to : Cold Irons Bound 7:15 Bob Dylan Time Out of Mind Rock/Pop
