One of my favorite experiences on Martha’s Vineyard is always a visit to the lighthouses of the island. There is something magical and powerful about a lighthouse and their enduring strength that resists everything that Mother Nature throws at it in order to guide sailors safely home. These are two of my favorites.
The lighthouse at Gay Head is in danger of collapsing into the sea. This image shows the erosion of the Gay Head Cliffs as it approaches the lighthouse. The cost to move the lighthouse is estimated at three million dollars and we only have two or three years to move it until it is unsafe to do the work. This CBS News story is a good overview of the lighthouse and the process to move it.

Sometimes the street is a wonderful place. While walking the grounds of the Louvre I encountered this special soul.

Statue of Neptune on the fountain on Piazza della Signoria in Florence, Italy. This was taken about midnight in the Piazza. It was one of those nights when everything seemed perfect – location, light, temperature and the energy in the Piazza.
