Walked through to see wha tthey have up for the holidays.
Jane Street between Hudson and 8th Avenue in Manhattan, a block away from my home, is closed off which make it lovely eating at the Tavern on Jane in the street by a little garden. The Christmas tree sellers are back on Jane. I love the scent of pine but I feel sorry for all the dead trees and would never buy one. This leaf was sitting next to me during lunch.
For Thanksgiving we took our friend Barbara with us to eat at Tatiana, a Russian restaurant, on the boardwalk at Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, New York for lunch. We all had red borscht, I had duck, and Barbara and I shared a huge Pavlova for desert. That was so good! After that we went to Jamaica Bay, part of Gateway NRA in Broad Channel for the sunset.
Took some closeups in a cloth box and using my macro lens of a few of my shells and minerals. A few of these are focus staked. I couldn’t make focus stacked images of some without a solid light source. I used an array of mini flashes on the ones not focus stacked. More experiments are needed.
I went back for the second time to Hudson Yards to shop on November 25, 2020. I bought some Levis for Marc at 40% off. I ate lunch there in an almost empty Shake Shake. Outside there is a tent with exercise bicycles. It’s a good time to climb the Vessel because there are few people doing so. On the way home I saw a white cat curled up in a swan in the plant district.
