Gowanus and Red Hook

A couple of days ago we went shopping by car. On the way on Horatio Street a robin was eating cherries. After shopping at Whole Foods we sat at a bench by the Gowanus Canal by the parking lot and ate lunch. It was fun watching the boats and drawbridge. Lastly, we drove to Red Hook (link to history) to briefly shop at the Food Bazaar.

Brighton and Jamaica Bay

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.

JB and Brighton

Yesterday Marc, my friend Paula and I went to Brighton Beach and ate lunch at one of the the Russian Restaurants on the boardwalk. I love the OT decorations. The food was good. After that we drove to Jamaica Bay in Brooklyn, part of Gateway NRA. It was late afternoon and very windy and atmospheric. A storm was brewing. No snow geese for me yet. I’ll try another time.

Breezy Pt and FBF

In addition to the landscapes I posted yesterday, I felt like taking some closeups and used my macro lens on my Nikon D610.

Breezy, Tilden and FBF

On Saturday we drove out to Breezy Point in Queens, NY. On the way back we stopped at Fort Tilden in Queens and Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn. I did a fair amount of work post processing in these landscapes to bring out the composition, colors, and feeling.
