Hi Dalibor. It is the rectangular block of white near the top of the photo. If you click on the spot, I found it enlarges to show that area.

Thanks Nick. Somehow that envelope caught my imagination. Was it dropped into the river accidentally or thrown in. I came up with stories for a half dozen scenarios.

yap, i think we mean the same thing, looking so it looks like shiny L, but when enlarged it looks like white rectangular.

Hi Bruce, since you'll probably be on the Turnpike, honk as you pass I-195 (either exit 7 or 7A). It's a straight shot eastbound, towards the water and me. I'll be listening for you; drive carefully.

Right on Dalibor, we're at the same place. I'm glad you both liked this one. It was a lucky shot.

This scene tends to bring things into perspective. A waterfall in an urban environment holding a human message. Perhaps tragic however wonderful.

Hi Tom. Thanks for joining the imagining. I think that's the gift of this shot. It touches that creative sector of our brains for some reason.
