Brooklyn Bridge Park

It was nice to go to this East River park in Brooklyn, New York, after the rain when there are clouds and nice soft light.

Two of the Manhattan Bridge supports were being taken away by barge, presumable for repairs.

Someday when I would like to go to the The River Cafe. When I feel I can burn up a wad of cash.

Floyd Bennett

We drove to Floyd Bennett field for me to have a practice session driving the car on the almost empty old runways. We had a picnic lunch by the community gardens there.

Jamaica Bay

I went to Jamaica Bay NWR in Brooklyn with two dear friends yesterday. There were quite a few winter ducks. I enjoyed the Brant and Snow Geese. A special one was the Long Tailed Duck at Sheepshead Bay. The best one for me was the Long-tailed Grackle who serenaded us. As part of its song it did a wing slap. I learned something new. It was real treat to get out and bird.

Bridges at Sunset

I have been super busy lately and it took me a long time to prepare these. The light changed as the sun set so I made a lot of pictures.

The evening at Brooklyn Bridge Park in Dumbo was very dramatic with a storm and lots of atmosphere.

I added a bolt of lightning that I saw strike the Freedom Tower to the first photograph.
