Sunday Scenes – March 24, 2013

Curving

This was taken on a walk through the lake and its bird sanctuary, and offshoot streams that lead to the L.A. River. I belong to a walking group, which is nice, because not only do we walk at a decent pace, but we also chatter the time away. We all seem to have a lot in common, which makes it enjoyable.

I am in the middle of reading The Retrospective, by A.B. Yehoshua. I am an avid reader of his works.

The one synagogue that survived the Holocaust near Auschwitz is nearing the state of collapse.

I must read this book, The Rarest Blue: The Remarkable Story of an Ancient Color Lost to History and Rediscovered.

Freud’s Sister looks to be a compelling book, and one that apparently raises a lot of questions.

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.

Visit the links below to see more Straight out of the Camera Sunday, and more Scenic Sunday photographs from around the world.

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.
