It is cold and crisp in Spring Lake–perfect weather for some winter fishing.

The Bronx Zoo

Took an Autumn  trip with Visions Photographic Workshops to the Bronx Zoo, the largest in the United States with 265 acres. Some of the more interesting sights included Tigers and Gorillas, as shown below.

Memphis TN

We just recently returned from Memphis, Tennessee, home of rock and roll and the blues. The trip included a visit to Graceland–the ultimate in kitsch, circa the 70s. We paid a visit to Sun City recording studios, where Elvis started recording. They give tours by day, and it’s a working studio at night. U2, Ringo and a host of others have also recorded there. Mary Anne, can be seen here at a microphone Elvis used.

The National Civil Rights Museum is also located in Memphis at the Lorraine Hotel where Dr. Martin Luther King was murdered. It is well worth a visit.
