The Brooklyn Way

My wife and I spend many of our weekends in Brooklyn. Whether it be exploring different neighborhoods, food or culture.      Brooklyn seems to have it all. LibertyDuring our ill fated search for a condo we’d canvas the different areas going from one open house after another. Knowing my likes, dislikes and moods.   She noted that Brooklyn was my “Switch”. No matter the circumstance, I always seem to enjoy my time there. On this particular day we did a lot of walking, stopped for mediterranean food, antique shopping and a Greek bakery.Pic ture of the Day III By the time we got to the river, the sun had just begun to soften. We walked a long distance in the high wind before grabbing a ferry back to the east side of the ferry. I shot these around 4:30 /5:00. My wife suggesting the set up for the first shot. The idea for the second was all mine. I got these printed at Duggal the next day. If we ever move. I’m going to find a place to hang them. Until then…

    1. Hi Deanna, thank you so much for the wonderful comment. I really appreciated you sharing the link to your blog. I can’t even begin to tell you how quickly I identified with your thoughts on travel. “To be a complete stranger to everybody.” is something I think we’ve all felt at one time or another. Traveling and meeting new people allows us to do that. It gives us a clean slate while rewarding us with new stories to tell.

      I’ve been able to do a lot of traveling over the years and though I really appreciate and understand how much doing it on my own has helped me grow as a photographer and on a larger scale, a person of content. I find that traveling with someone (Definitely not a group.) can be just as rewarding, if not more. It’s allowed me to see with a second set of eyes and given me a perspective I might not have had otherwise.

      So I guess I’m going to have to leave you with an open ended answer. I’ll say this though. I found out long ago that depending on others for our happiness and getting things you want to do, done, never works in the end. I’m slowly finding myself going out on my own to shows and concerts. Each time I’ve done so, I find myself coming away with more and more friends. It’s been a great experience.

      Thanks again for the comment and the question. You gave me a new blog to follow in the process.

      Talk to you soon.
