Roosevelt Island South

After the Canada geese is a photograph of a root. There is a row of trees that sent out roots from the path into the lawn (seen in the picture with the geese). It is a very curious thing. There must be more water in the lawn for them.

Roosevelt Island Reflections

We all had fun making photographs with the puddles. A gull stepped in and posed for us.

Roosevelt Island Bridge

Another trip with Sierra Photo NYC – New York City Sierra Club Photography Committee. It was a gloomy day, but I didn’t mind because it adds atmosphere. I have 5 posts on this topic. The first 5 I photographed from the tram on the way from Manhattan to Roosevelt Island.
