Rower In This Afternoon's Glitter and Haze

I'm afraid that without my intending it, this has become a boating blog this month: every March post has featured an image of at least one. I'll return to a broader range of topics soon, but I just haven't had much time for the blog this month and for some reason in the little time I have had I've been coming across boats. But it's really the skyline in the above image that never fails to strike me from this perspective in the north lagoon: a fairy tale collection of shapes that in this afternoon's hazy sunlight took on an appropriately immaterial appearance--like something projected by one of those old fashioned magic lanterns that figure so prominently in Proust.
