Classically Ornate

The iconic New York Stock Exchange, 18 Bond Stret, NYC.

Just looking at this photo makes my feet hurt – we walked for about 12 hours (with breaks for refreshments) and covered about 50k the day it was taken.  But that’s fodder for another story.  😉

Weekly Photo Challenge – Ornate

Iron Grid

There are many famous bridges.  The Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge, Tower Bridge in London and the Confederation Bridge (to PEI) come immediately to my mind. But the Brooklyn Bridge must be among the most iconic of bridges.  This “grid-y” photo was taken during our visit to NYC last November …… When I checked off a bucket list item, and marched across the Brooklyn Bridge and back again.  It was fabulous!! (And very busy)

Photography 101 – Highlights

One photo, every day!  This was such an interesting exercise.  It’s one thing to point a click when I see something I like and want to record, but the challenge came in focusing on a specific theme every day.

Like “Swarm”.

When I read the assignment, the first thing that came to mind was, of course, bees…..or atleast some insects.  But this is November and all those guys are tucked away.  I certainly did not expect to find a “swarm” in an art gallery exhibit.  But, voila!  There it was.

And that is what I have taken from this workshop.  It’s all about keeping my eyes (and my mind) OPEN. 🙂

I’ve gathered a few of my favourite photos here, taken this month.  But I am very happy to report that I did manage to rise to the challenge every day….even the weekends. It was fun!

Thanks for coming along with me.

Designing a Day

This is a rare moment. A day to do with what I will. Okay, not the whole day, but a large part of it. Oh! The options are truely endless…..because I’m in Manhattan! Galleries, museums, epic landmarks, the parks, the shops(!); the list goes on. The New York Public Library or people watch at Grand Central Station? Perhaps I’ll pick up some theatre tickets. I’ll meet up with my husband in the evening, but until then, the day is mine…..all mine. And the nicest part? There’s no rush…no schedule….no stress. I’ll see what I see, when I see it. But for the moment ….I’ll enjoy this…and really be here in this moment. The anticipation of a day to myself.

That is bliss.
