Time Passing: May 2014

May 28, 2014

The month of May 2014 is coming to an end, never to be experienced again.

I suspect that I am not the only person who collects colourful picture paper calendars that mark the passage of time. My daily workplace currently has five, most of which seem to have some identification with the actual month. What these calendars show, and where they are from, tells a fair bit about me, about the images that I want to see during the day and about the choices that colour picture calendar producers make.

So here are the photos that I have been staring at during the past month:

From my “New York 2014” calendar: “The Statue of Liberty, Liberty Island, with the Manhattan skyline in the background”, appears to be at sunrise, as the photo is, I believe, facing east.

From my “New England 2014” calendar: “Marina in a cover in Chatham, Barnstable County, Massachusetts” – a bright sunny day with lots of small sailboats at a dock and on a beach.
