Pearl Fisher





"Miami Beach, pearly iridescence,
Your Fisher man's dream.
A sunset's call,
Siren incandescent,
Along evening's sheen."

  • Best photo I've ever taken. Even better than this or even this.

  • Yes, it is very, very beautiful...it made me sort of wistful, even before reading about my dream! I promise to take nice A2 pictures for my blog, especially in the fall, where things here are at their prettiest.

    Thank you, for this one Victoria...

    Oh yeah nice snap.

    Yeah, I agree. It's got a touch of fading bathos, which can give one a sense of deep wistfulness.

    It's good to pine a little for things. That means you're paying attention to it, at least. :)

    Oh, Ann Arbor must be glorious at that time. I only saw it in July (for the 4th actually!), but even then it was magical.

    My Ann Arbor was very preppy though. All popped collars, boys in polos fiddling with their yachts, and topsiders. What's up with that?

    Can't wait for those pics. ;)

    Thank you, for this one Victoria...

    Thank YOU, Ron!

    Cheers,

    Me! :)

    I composed this poem for Miami Beach, and the other sunset one in the link I provided in the first comment, above.

    Oh yeah nice snap.

    Thank you, Conv442! My mother liked another one I took that day, but I'm saving it. :)

  • Note for those who didn't get "Fisher man", especially spelt that way.

    Carl Fisher, Jr. was the modern-day founder of Miami Beach. This man almost singlehandedly built Miami Beach out of nature's ruins, by seeing a vision of holiday retreat, where people merely saw overgrown brush and dense palm trees.

    God bless Mr. Fisher.

    Cheers,

  • The Beastie Boys, yes, those white rappers from NYC, used to publish a really cool magazine(!) called "Grande Royale." One of the regular features was a long article on a "Real American Badass," the first such article being on Carl Fisher. It was outstanding, and if you're interested... I'll send it to you.

    Another one of the articles was on Aaron Burr!

    Hate rap, but LOVE the Beastie Boys.

    Why not, even when you dislike something, you still can recognise genius.

    How kind, Ron! I may just take you up on that, but first I have to send that Goya Carepackage to you. ;)

    What eclectic tastes those boys had. They are brilliant...

    Aaron Burr, indeed. What did they say?

    Cheers,

  • BTW, thanks to all for not being nitpicky and correcting my "iridiscence" bad spelling.

    As if Wordsworth ever would've made that mistake.

    Cheers,

  • The Beasties portrayed Aaron Burr as a monsterously selfish psycho, but an interesting one.

    I have some cool mash-ups of "The Beastles", Beastie Boy lyrics on top of Beatles music...pretty cool.

    And check out their new concert film, "Awesome! I F***in' shot that!" where they handed the cameras to the fans, let them film, and edited it themselves.

    Oh! I have heard about something like that -- I'm guessing from you or Renato.

    What a capital idea.

    Cheers,
