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: Aboard The Liberty of the Seas

16 Jun

June 16, 2015

These pictures were taken on the deck of the Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas last week. I used the same Fujifilm Finepix XP80 as I did for the pictures I posted yesterday. This is deck 11, to be precise, which runs like a track around and above the pool deck. The first two pictures I like because of the amazing sky.

This next one appeals to me because of the symmetry of the deck chairs, all in a row. And trust me, finding this many empty beach chairs on a sunny day was a miracle.

Lastly, the names on the side of the ship have to be to be seen, but I think this gives a nice perspective of how big they really are.
