52 Photos Project

The assignment this time: to capture the 
ambient light of twilight.  In this (unretouched 
by me, I swear) shot, I can absolutely see 
why they call this time "l'heure bleu."
[To see more of the blue hour,
go here, to Bella's meme.]

Monday Doorways

If you watched TV in the '90s, you may
recognize this as the home of the Huxtables.
In the show, they lived in Brooklyn (that's right!),
but this is actually 10 Leroy Street, in the Village.

Sunday Bridges

Early-morning fog on the Brooklyn Bridge.
It's becoming harder and harder to take a shot on
this bridge that doesn't include evidence of
ongoing (apparently until at least 2014) renovations.

Weekend Reflections

This is the gravesite of two sisters,
in Paris's beautiful Pere Lachaise cemetery.

52 Photos Project

The assignment: Share one word that describes you.
Seriously, only one?  Hey, I've been around a while!
Okay, fine—don't know if this word describes me exactly,
but it's definitely the one I strive for.  So, what's yours?

Sunday Bridges

This charming little bridge is in the
Brooklyn Botanic Garden. (I am so
lucky to have this beautiful place nearby!)

{And speaking of Paris—it has lots of bridges, you know—tomorrow is
the last day to enter Jordan's wonderful contest at Oh Happy Day.}

Weekend Reflections

The Chelsea Piers (that's the golf driving range within 
all that netting) is one of the good things about my 
old neighborhood (again, they were clearly just waiting 
for the former hippie to leave so they could yuppify).  :~}

What's outside the window?

Italy!  This is the harbor in Vernazza—and that's Monterosso al Mare,
the northernmost town of the Cinque Terre, off in the distance.
[I'm excited to find this 52 Photos Project (if a bit late—this is Week 8).

From a Flower's Point of View

It's tough to stand out in a crowd!

[Recently discovered this fun meme (Exploring With
a Camera) at "The KatEye View of the World."

Today's Flowers

Welcome to the rose garden at the Brooklyn Botanic—
where thousands of blooms have unfolded.  I just
loved this perfect purpley-pink one.

Weekend Reflections

Lots of things are reflected in the BBG's water-lily
pond (do you see the bride and groom?). I think
it's curious that you
can't see the clouds in the
sky but you can see them in the pond.

Today's Flowers

One of my favorite flowers—the wisteria is past its
bloom now, but it was gorgeous while it lasted!
Here's the long view of the
(very necessary) strong support.

Weekend Reflections

Sweet treats, with chandeliers, deep in the
heart of Soho.  But I resisted—would you?
