Jefferson Market Plants

Assorted plants form the lovely little garden on Greenwich Street and 6th Avenue. I included a reworked Trillium from Central Park. The first three have replaced backgrounds.

Two W4th Street Doors

Classic doors with stoops (from the Dutch word stoep) or stairs. In New York many still call them stoops. When the Dutch colonists settled in New York in the 1600s they added this style of stairs to rows of apartments called tenements and brownstones. The second photograph has the now closed historic Fedora Restaurant in the basement.

Central Park

First of the season Tuesday morning Central Park trip with Linnaean NY. No time for me to photograph much because we were running around looking for things like Yellow-billed Cuckoos.

Central Park Art

I haven’t been to Central Park in quite a while. We went there on Saturday, September 4 for a morning walk. It was so nice to see so many of my birding friends there. There wasn’t a large number of birds, but the few I found where nice ones. The best was a humming bird and a Bay-breasted Warbler.

I spent a few hours today adding new backgrounds to these in Photoshop.

Little Island

Little Island is now open at 6 am on. It is nice to go there before the crowds.

There is a plastic camera glued to he road divide. I made a pattern out of the picture in Photoshop’s Library then adjusted it to fit over the image.

NYBG Scenes

6 of 6 of the New York Botanical Gardens. I know the frog isn’t a scene. I like frogs so I included it.
