Shadow Shot Sunday 2 returns on a cold morning around here. Friendly furry family feline Linus McDonald does have fur to keep warm. Of course, any cat prefers to be warmer. So Linus likes the window with a southern exposure and more sun, and chooses the dining room window in the A.M. Naturally, the sun casts an aura onto him, an almost ghostly glow that radiates from his backside. I almost feel warmer just by looking at the glowing furball - who needs a furnace?

|Backside of the Ansonia (CT) Opera House|
We are on West Main Street in our old industrial town of Ansonia CT. This subject is the rear of the 1870 Ansonia Opera House and it seems a bit decrepit - although I used the front of this subject in a WWDD post in April where there is retail on the street side. I wouldn't call it patina, but the old building with modern graffiti seems the norm in old towns like ours. Still, the style, details and hulking presence are still impressive...
And congratulations on twenty years! We are at 26, and it has been the best thing ever :)

Shadow Shot Sunday 2 is back as Cameron celebrates a birthday today - 23 years have occurred since this day in 1990 at 8:52 AM, and our son was born. In fact, the day before was Thanksgiving Day and we were and are thankful for the gift...even though it is his birthday, no celebration today - since he received a nice job offer as a software developer in New York City, he is meeting with apartment brokers in Brooklyn to secure a place to live...As parents, we are quite happy. So a pictorial retrospective is in order. Once a helpless babe, he has grown up with a sense of values, honesty and knowledge. So we celebrate not just a birthday, but also his continued success...

Toby's fun meme, Whimsical Windows/Delirious Doors is back. Readers of this blog know that I am still in the process of scanning a lot of old prints taken by my grandfather over many decades. The curious thing about many of these is that there are bereft of notations - so it is a sort of mystery as to just where it is. However, I believe this to be in Chicago, from 1964 and if my big sister Michele (that I know) on a trip away from home with my grandparents...the perspective here is the large edifice in the behind to the ten-year-old. Big vs, small, merely a different perspective...
