The phrase “cherry on top” makes me think of an ice cream sundae or something sweet like that. As for me personally, I have never cared for the preserved red cherry on top, but I do enjoy fresh cherries immensely. Besides the obvious Christian theme, maybe that is what this picture is about. Enjoy and here is the official definition for the phrase according to the Oxford dictionary.
“A desirable feature perceived as the finishing touch to something that is already very good.” Fits this picture very well, don’t you think.
I stole this picture from H. Koppdelaney’s Photostream fair and square.

New Year’s Day In Northern New Mexico
New year’s day could not have been more generous for the start of 2013, for here on the western flanks of the Sangre de Christo Mountains she deposited over a foot of fresh powder.

This week finds me bumming around Duluth in both search of work and a place to live. Having not found success at either one leaves lots of time to explore this lakeside city with my camera. Here are some of the results.
Along the east side of the city there is a long shoreline with a couple of lighthouses, a boardwalk, a rose garden and several parks. Following are some images from the lakeshore area.
The Magical Drawbridge
This drawbrige, built in the early 20th century, is one of the few where the main platform rises vertically. The structure is a Duluth landmark, photo by author.
The camera is a great tool for creating abstract images and designs. This is what I found in Duluth.
Superior Street in downtown Duluth cuts across a steep hillside that is filled with stores, banks, office buildings and even a casino. I’ve spent too much time at the casino and not enough looking for work. This storefront window on Superior St. sells T-shirts.
Since Bob Dylan just gave a major interview with Rolling Stone Mag, there is more coming soon on the man from northern Minnesota.
