Take a look ...

Maybe it's because I spent the first nine years of my life among factories and railroad yards, but cityscapes always delight me. My colleague Eric Mencher, currently loafing in Spain with his wife, Kass, is especially adept at catching the formal beauty of the urban scene, as this and this nicely demonstrate. The ship, by the way, is the S.S. United States, which, on her maiden voyage in 1952, crossed the Atlantic in a record-breaking three days, 10 hours and 40 minutes. She now sits forlorn and neglected at a dock on the Delaware.
And that will be my blogging for today. Tomorrow, back to Russell Brain, the nervous system, and Walter de la Mare.
