This week Ailsa has posted the Travel Theme: Leading Lines over at her blog. She is in the midst of an amazing cross-country adventure, first by train, and now heading back by road. How exciting – I’m envious. But, she has set me thinking and I might have to hop onto a train for a long ride, unlike the short train ride I did last week from New York Penn Station to New Jersey on the New Jersey Transit line. The one-hour train ride is nothing exciting except for a glimpse of the ocean – I wait for that view every time I travel on NJ Transit. I tried to take a few pictures from the train last week, and here are some of them, which seem to fit the challenge of Leading Lines. You can see the Manhattan skyline in the second picture with the Freedom Tower looming in the distance above everything else.

This week the Weekly Photo Challenge Growth has some great entries, and you can check them out here.
For several photo challenges, I have posted pictures of Georgie, my cat. He is quite a character and I thought I could document his growth in a few pictures for the challenge. He was a stray kitten and now rules the house. He is a handful of mischief and terror all rolled into one adorable cat.
This picture was taken the day he arrived in the Fall of 2010.
A few weeks later Georgie feels totally at home!
A couple of months later
And this is a recent picture of Georgie where he has climbed onto a high windowsill, and then next thing I hear is something crashing onto the floor, yup, he broke the blue vase. Oh well……
Tomatoes growing in my little backyard. Other entries can be accessed here.
This week’s Sunday Post is Road, and Jake says:
A road is a route, or way on land between two places, which typically has been paved or otherwise improved to allow travel by some conveyance, including a horse, cart, or motor vehicle. Roads consist of one, or sometimes two roadways each with one or more lanes and also any associated sidewalks . Roads that are available for use by the public may be referred to as public roads or highways.
So, on that note, here is a road from New York City. If you live in the city or have visited, you know that the yellow taxicab is a big part of the NYC roads, and the picture of a NYC road is incomplete without a taxicab. This picture shows Broadway by the City Hall in downtown Manhattan, close to Ground Zero.
Can you guess what this is? No cheating 🙂
OK, you give up? Here it is….
On my way home from work, I walked past a little farmer’s market and here are two of the purple veggies I found – the other veggies did not qualify for the challenge, but the purple cabbage and purple beans did.
Check out the other ‘Purple’ entries here. A lot of folks seem to have purple as their favorite color – and I am hoping to see the picture of a purple kitchen wall!
