Election Day – America

Election Day, November, 1884 by Walt Whitman

These stormy gusts and winds

waft precious ships,

Swell’d Washington’s,

Jefferson’s,  Lincolin sails.

In August I made this image in Bruges, Belgium.

After a stormy day, the rain stopped,

The dark sky cleared,

Blue sky swept the clouds away.

In a small square men and women danced

the tango among puddled reflections.

Dusk in the Medieval City of Bruges – Belgium

The light sprinkling of rain had stopped. At dusk, the sky turned an extraordinary blue. Light settled on the buildings creating a night of wonder for our overnight stay in Bruges. We walked in awe, our faces looking up at the sky mixing with buildings from the 12th century on.  When darkness settled, we found  a restaurant on the canal where we ate dinner and talked about the beauty of this old city.
