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: St. Maarten

I took these pictures last week in St. Maarten. I was sitting on the dock waiting for the water taxi and snapped a few pictures with my Fujifilm Finepix XP80, using the automatic setting. I didn’t crop or alter these in any way. They are just a pair of nice shots from a beautiful afternoon that I was lucky enough to snap. I’ll post a pair that I took on the deck of Royal Caribbean’s Liberty of the Sea cruise ship in a few days.



These pictures are for Saarah. She’ll know why.
