A wall of stickers. The outdoor wall. This place used to be a bar I think, it’s on Atlantic Ave in Brooklyn.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth

I was up in the mountains yesterday sitting by the creek, listening to its stories:

creek running wild, spring dance

Photo Challenge:Cherry on Top

Why a cherry on top?

He passed me on the pier. I couldn’t figure out where he was going because there was no one else there, plus it was almost 8pm. And for whatever reason I hadn’t noticed the fishing rod in his hand. Then when he was way way off, he cast his reel. very cool, I thought.

WP Prompt: Solitude

coney island 1

Snow on the beach at Coney Island in Brooklyn taken on a snowy day…


Taken in the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. This is under a canopy of well entwined trees, across from the Japanese Garden.  With limbs low enough to perch on with legs swinging while letting the imagination roam, it’s a child’s dream. Adults too! But, of course you can’t,  it is forbidden. One can only dream:)
