Windy Day

With all these high winds of late, I thought this photo quite fitting.

I can never chance using my umbrella when it's windy like this. Because I'm afraid the umbrella will suffer a similar fate to the one in the photo. And I really, really my brolly. :)

I was out last night trying to take photos from Waterloo Bridge, both my camera and I were nearly blown into the Thames - gusty winds.

I don't think you understood, about this post of mine .... You commented; "Its all these dirt diggers. Elections are not what they used to be."

Spitzer is not in an election run now.

And the important part is ~ Spitzer made a name for himself, by PROSECUTING wrong do'ers.

"Spitzer gained national attention when he served as attorney general with his relentless pursuit of Wall Street wrongdoing. As attorney general, he also had prosecuted at least two prostitution rings as head of the state's organized crime task force."

Whether you think prostitution should or should not be illegal, is IS illegal, in New York State.

And the Governor of a State is sworn to uphold the law. He can not be allowed to break the same laws, he is to uphold.

This is not a case of muck-raking journalists.

It is a case of self-proclaimed Crime Chaser, to have been *chasing* the same crime, he says he prosecutes. Two-faced doesn't even start to cover it.

Hypocrisy. Blatant hypocrisy. That is what has us so riled up. Not raging morality or such. -chuckle- Humans are human but geee, they've been dealing with such, with mistresses for eons. >,-)

Hope you understand where I was coming from, with my post.

AH, yes... I do remember your blog - but I lost track of it. Now I have it saved in my little blog folder so I can find my way back!
Great photography!
And this is why I almost never use an umbrella. Way too windy here on the shore!
TG - possum?????

Funny. We had very strong winds on Saturday - up to 48 mph gust and steady at over 30 mph, which is very strong for us if there is no hurricane nearby.

Kostas said...

Very good, I believe that the air to us will take all!
But why time a white and black glove? !

Too much wind is keeping me awake at night, at least it has calmed down now.

Blow me down, that's an amusing photo!

Wow that was a fantastic photo. I never take an umbrella around here because we always have winds. I sure love the expression on this fellows face.
