Theme Thursday - Summer

The schooner Aurora off the Rose Island Lighthouse, Photoshopped to look like oil on canvas.

And of course the only song to use with this - "Sailing" by Christopher Cross:

  5. San Antonians and for former San Antonians of a certain age (I won't say which one) remember Christopher Cross as the voice of Dyer Electronics jingle:

    A Dyer deal
    is stereo steal
    Dyyyyy-er
    Electroooonics!

  9. Beautiful ship and I like the photoshop technique you used.

    I saw Christopher Cross last year in an ensemble doing a Beatles "40 Years Ago Today" tribute -- he still has a great voice.

    Your photography is beautiful!

  11. Whoa! You had me fooled for a split second there with that really eye-popping photo.
    Great musical accompaniment.

    Very summery!

  12. Man does this bring back summer for me. I grew up with a sailboat (on Lake Champlain) and every weekend we went out in it. Ah, just heaven.

  14. Love your treatment of the photo (which is a good one, anyway!) Enjoyed the song, though I'm not that familiar with it. I was expecting Rod Stewart's 'Sailing.' :)

  15. The picture of the schooner and the lighthouse is amazing. It belongs on a wall.

  16. Youve caught the Essense of Summer.
    It must be a human instinct to seek out water in The Summer.
