Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Meandering through some streets of Deira market – Echoes Of My Neighbourhood #7

During my vacation this past week my travels took me to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden a place that is a slice of Heaven and the Garden of Eden rolled into one glorious encounter with nature. I especially enjoyed the Isamu Noguchi sculptures artfully placed int various areas. As I strolled through the various pathways slowly examining different types of plants, flowers, trees and bushes I felt a real connection to Mother Earth in her natural Glory.

Harlem on my mind. Photos taken at the Studio Museum in Harlem, outside the Apollo Theater, and along 125th Street. Tho photos are of James Vanderzee old photography studio at 124 and Lenox Avenue. It is now a real estate office. James Vanderzee was a famous Harlem Renaissance photographer. He photographed my Dad in 1935.

Snowstorm Juno Brooklyn, New York Jan. 2015

Snowstorm Juno 2015.

Espiritu en Fuego/A Fiery Spirit

Snowstorm Juno NYC. These were taken within a two block radius of my house. Fulton Street, Rockaway Avenue & Hull Street between 5:30 am and 6:00am. The MTA worker shoveling in front of my train station probably thought I was nuts. I told him that I was taking photos of the closed subway station for my job.

Yes I will brave almost any weather for my art!! Feeling exhilarated and invigorated!!
