I dug through my folders while house bound and came up with these six plant photographs I would like to show.
In case anyone finds this useful. My filing system for my over 100,000 images starts with folders named by location (USA, World, People, etc.) with sub folders by year. Inside the year folders are dated folders: YYYMMDD and subject. Inside those folders are folders called RAW, TIF, JPG, PSD – as needed. This folder structure works well in Lightroom as I can select by type of file easily. I use file names starting with YYYMMDD subject, and number. I also find files easily searching the added meta data of location and details on the subject. Using the date first in a file name means that files will will sort chronologically in any computer system or app.
A few doors south at 43 Fifth Avenue is this door.
“Once home to Marlon Brando and novelist Dawn Powell, 43 Fifth Avenue defines grandeur. Completed in 1905 and converted to cooperative in 1978, this 11-story Beaux Arts residence, with its dry moat, bay windows and wrought-iron balconies, is an elegant example of the stately pre-war apartment houses for which Lower Fifth Avenue is known. A grand entrance, framed by limestone lampposts, leads to an extraordinarily ornate marble lobby, attended by a 24-hour doorman. Its sizable homes, with their soaring, 10-1/2 foot ceilings, boast an eclectic variety of original details. 42 residences. (Source: https://streeteasy.com/building/43-5-avenue-new_york)”
Completed in 1908, the American Seaman’s Friend Society Sailors’ Home and Institute was designed by William A. Boring, the architect of the Ellis Island’s immigrant station. Originally built as a hotel for sailors with cabin-like rooms, the landmarked hotel was restored on its centennial in 2008.
In 1912, the survivors of the Titanic stayed at the hotel until the end of the American Inquiry into the ship’s sinking. The surviving crew held a memorial service at the hotel four days after the ship sank.
In 1944, the YMCA took over the hotel from the Seaman’s Relief Center. And during the ’80s and ’90s the hotel hosted Hedwig and the Angry Inch and the Million Dollar Club, amongst many other rock-n-roll events. (Sourec: https://www.thejanenyc.com/history/).
