i spent part of the day in DUMBO, NY. my plan was to arrive in manhattan early in the morning for a little shutter therapy, but i slowpoked around and did not board the train until 10:50. i think, with the delay, i just made it there by 11:30 to meet ron. we had to have walked at least 10-12 miles together and 15 in total for me. my body is tired, but in a good way. below are a few photos from the day.
there are hundreds of locks on the brooklyn bridge cables, and i’m not sure why. maybe it’s the equivalent of spray painting one’s name on a wall without the vandalism? i now feel the need to buy a lock, write my name on it and add it to the mix. next time, brooklyn. next time. (fact: i have a niece named brooklyn.)
this beautiful beauty of a bike was found outside a shop in soho. sadly, i’ve never been to soho before, but it is absolutely beautiful. i walked around like a four-year old in a candy store with eyes the size of saucers. my inside voice kept saying, “wow.” (fact: whenever i see a bicycle on the street, i always want to photograph it.)
i loved the beautiful and bright-colored shops in soho, reminded me of bermuda. (fact: ron and i waited for people to move away from in front of this shop so we could get a photo without any people in it. odd that i like the photo with a person in it.)
saw this flower on the way down the side street near the brooklyn bridge. (fact: i stuck my lens through the fence to get this shot.)
i love coffee ice cream and always with wet walnuts. this was delicious. (fact: ron bought this for me and he is one the most sweetest/considerate/thoughtful gentlemen i know. always holds the door for me and keeps me hydrated. on the train ride over i was already planning our next trip.)
