Sunday Scenes – Last one of 2012

tree shadows

The pictures of the pelicans, great white egret and other birds were taken about a week ago while walking at the lake. The shadow photograph was taken then, as well.

Conference Time

The Beak of the Pelican
By J. Patrick Lewis
She looks for wiggly fishes,
At least so it appears,
To stuff inside the suitcase
That’s swinging from her ears.

And though she’s very graceful
When flying round and round,
How does she get that faceful
Of luggage off the ground?

Pelican White Egret

Jewaicious’ Sunday Scenes 1/22/12

I enjoy taking photographs that display forms of shadow play. I love how shadows can depict and/or convey mood and light, structure and texture. The photographs below were both taken at local parks, one with a lake, and one that has a mountainous background.

Book news:

I will be writing a review of The Emperor of Lies: A Novel, by Steve Sem-Sandberg, within the next couple of days.

I have finished reading Two Rings: A story of love and war, by Millie Werber and Eve Keller.

I have almost finished reading The How & Why of Jewish Prayer, by Israel Rubin.

I am intrigued by the architectural history and by the decisions made regarding Beth Sholom Synagogue, and might just try to locate the book, Beth Sholom Synagogue: Frank Lloyd Wright and Modern Religious Architecture, by Joseph M. Siry, in a local library.

The Modern Jewish Experience in World Cinema sounds like an excellent read.

A Daughter of Two Mothers sounds both heartbreaking and uplifiting.

Have a good week! Be well, take care.
