GV and Hudson

Greenwich Village and the Hudson River

I haven’t seen the streets in my neighborhood so empty since 9/11.

Above the couple of panoramas created in my cell phone is one I call “Hudson River Park – flames.” When I saw the rust pattern on the floating dock it mirrored a same shape in the skyline. I superimposed the pattern in Photoshop on the skyline to bring out what I imagined.

Local Nature

Over the last several days we went out for short walks to stretch our legs while maintaining “social distance”. Here is a selection of plants. The multi-color schist used in the wall along the Hudson River Park has pink feldspar and green feldspar coloring the layers. I used my Samsung Note 10+ to photograph these.

One Rusty Berry

I was intrigued by the little yellow tufts on one berry on this bush. I did a search and came up with Cedar-hawthorn Rust (Crataegus).
