Marvelous Sightings

Marvelous sightings everywhere in New York City.  Last night, this window caught my eye.

Ralph Lee and Casey Compton were obviously advertising their puppets, masks, and costumes, with this hand-lettered, notebook paper sign.

But what came to me for me was Cezanne and any of his card players paintings.

Paul Cézanne, The Card Players, 1890–92, Barnes Foundation

Don’t you think?

Today was bright and lovely for the marvelous Duck Day in Naugatuck.  Money is raised for local charities when people buy a rubber duck for $5.  The  thousands of ducks are then dumped into the Naugatuck River to race.  Forget the Belmont Stakes.  The real champions are yellow and squat.

The tension definitely was mounting as the ducks approached the starting gate.

And watch and listen for the countdown and launch!

And they’re off…

Except for mine perhaps, probably ending up like so many, mired in the banks.

Look at ’em go!

One thought on “Marvelous Sightings

  1. You are so clever about the Cezanne and the window set up. And Estes Park has a aduck Day but before we come up . I doubt if it is that dramatic. maes a pretty picture, like a splotch of gold paint upon the water. Fun!
