For me just as the beginning of summer is when we get the boat in the water, the end of summer is when we pull the boat out of the water. This weekend marked the beginning of that process as we made the trek from our mooring to the marina in Norwalk where will be hauled.
This year we were accompanied by Jay our buddy from TowBoatUS who gave us a tow to the dock. If you have a boat a BoatUS membership with on water towing is an amazing insurance policy. I highly recommend it!
I am fascinated with the idea of how time can be represented in a still image. I return time and time again to David Hockney on this subject and recently came across a video that I hadn’t previously seen of him talking about this topic and thought that I’d share it here.
I spent an afternoon over the weekend wandering around the local woods. Not hard to do in this part of Connecticut – everything seems to be in the Woods! It’s nice but I find it a little claustrophobic. Fortunately there are lots of ponds and lakes too which breaks up the walk nicely.
The ponds are now starting to catch the falling leaves. It will be snowing soon enough.
I recently came across the work of Josep Pla-Narbona – a graphic designer, painter and sculpturer. Born in Barcelona, Spain, in 1928, he worked with advertising agencies early in his career producing work such as the advertising poster above. Many of his posters from this time remind me of some of the board books that we read to the kids when they were younger. In the second part of his career his focus has been on engraving, painting, drawing and sculpture.
I found the video below first and enjoyed Josep’s playfulness and thought that he was worth looking into further. Check out the video below (you may need to turn the subtitles on !) and learn more about his work here.
