Shangri-La visited

In a recent post I discussed the miraculous discovery of a broad, concealed path along the Mississippi River, hidden in plain sight, that I had somehow missed over the past couple of decades. It is a lovely, quiet, grandly pathed secret world, still, even as a giant city roars all around it. It was a little funny of me to have no photographs of it to illustrate it when I spoke of it. I, who cannot stop from showing you every detail of my little local river worlds somehow omitted that. 

But the thing is, my little Shangri-La isn't terribly photogenic.

Like so many magical things, it refuses to resolve on film.

But as you are probably aware, I have contrived a fix for that sort of thing.

The same trick I use at the library, for various light and dark purposes, I employ here in bringing this Shangri-La to life so that you can see it. 

You deserve to see it.

I will be splitting my pictures in half over today and tomorrow. The division is random, and really just a method for parceling out my efforts. 

I do hope these pictures can give off a little of the charm of the place, which is subtle, but prodigious.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
