Picture Postcard: Calvert Vaux Park, Brooklyn NY

5 Jul

June 5, 2016

I took these in Calvert Vaux Park on July 3rd. This is a large park in South Brooklyn that, due to its isolation alongside the Belt Parkway, relatively few people go to. You can see the Coney Island Parachute Jump in the background of a couple, and if you look closely, you can spot a horseshoe crab or two. This is their spawning season. Much of the park is brand new and newly renovated, with ball fields and picnic areas. But along the water, there are still old relics of abandoned piers and half-submerged boats. I only covered the southern edge of the park and I’ll follow up with more pics from the bulk of the park later on in the month.

Picture Postcard: Brooklyn Blizzard 2016

24 Jan

January 24, 2016

There is a huge blizzard hitting the east coast as I type this.  You might have heard this on the news. It is kind of a big deal. As of an hour ago, NYC already had over 27 inches of snow and it is still coming down. The Governor instituted a travel ban. Subways and buses shut down, stores closed. Everyone stay inside.

So of course I went outside and took pictures.

This is not me. Who would be taking the picture?

Out of the dozens of pictures I took, here are a few that I liked. Click on the thumbnails for bigger images. And thanks for looking.
