Catcher In The Rye

"Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be." ~J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye, Chapter 22, spoken by the character Holden Caulfield

I took the photograph keeping after I heard about the Death of J.D. Salinger.  Wondering if he haunts a rye field these days. =D.... Jokes apart Catcher in the rye is one of my all time Favs. RIP JDS


  1. Rest in peace JDS. Catcher in the Rye is also one of my favorites. The photo and quote are a lovely tribute to his passing.

  2. Aloha from Hawaii my Friend-
