Brooklyn Botanic in May

A friend and I went to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden (BBG) in May to see the spring flowers and cherries. Next post includes some closeups.

Pine Barrens Flora

This third and last post on the Pine Barrens shows what a lot of the area looks like inland and a few of the plants.

Ward Pound Ridge and Keeler Tavern

On this cold a windy Easter Sunday we went for a drive to Ward Pound Ridge Reservation in Westchester, New York. It was so cold we ate our picnic in the car. On the way back I chose a scenic route through Connecticut. we stopped at the Keeler Tavern in Ridgefield, CT. The entry fees to the museum where too much. I had a brief look at their lovely grounds.

Gowanus and the Brooklyn Bridge

I like to shop at Whole Foods in Brooklyn by the Gowanus Canal. I also edited an old photograph of the Brooklyn Bridge while testing the freeze in Photoshop.

NYC Mix

Redoing old images as test files. I am still trying to get Photoshop fixed. It keeps freezing.

Rockaway Baby

This macabre thing caught my eye at Rockaway Beach. I thought it was a dead animal at first. This gloomy image matched my mood at that moment. I am in mourning for our recently departed bird Dinka and slip into melancholy easily.

Little Island

Roosevelt Island

This is the first of a half dozen posts of photographs made during a trip to Roosevelt Island in the East River on February 17th 2022. The two mile long island is part of the borough of Manhattan, New York. The island was called Minnehanonck by the Lenape and Varkens Eylandt (Hog Island) by New Netherlanders (source: Roosevelt Island – Wikipedia). The trip was sponsored by Sierra Photo NYC. Some of these have augmented skies.
