It’s not exactly Venice, is it? But it is in fact much nicer, cleaner, and less pungent that it was a couple of decades ago. The neighborhood around it is now thriving, and you can see the growing skyline of an expanding downtown Brooklyn straight ahead. This was taken about a month ago on a Sunday morning during a walk for my Prime Lens Expreiment. Another shot made the featured that week, but there are several others from that day worth sharing.

2019 Prime Lens Experiment – Week 7

For Week  I stopped by the Marble Hill section of Manhattan, which is on the mainland, not Manhattan Island. One river moved, another was filled in, and in the end a part of what was Manhattan is now geographically connected to the Bronx, but politically still part of Manhattan, but separated by the bridge you see here.

2019 Prime Lens Experiment – Week 5

I’m still running with the 50mm. Last week I went to 10th Avenue and 15th Street hoping to find a good composition using the temporary exhibit celebrating the 90th Birthday of Mickey Mouse called Mickey: A True Original.*   They have some great art on the outside of the building for the exhibit, and I took several shots, but I couldn’t make it work.  So I also took this frame of one of the few remaining classic covered pedestrian bridges between buildings left in NYC. As I was taking it, I also noted the Milk banner hanging on the right and made a mental note to look it up. It turns out to be for a photography and film studio located on the eighth floor of a building on this block. I never would have guessed. I thought it was some sort of random banner for milk.

Week 4 – 2019 Prime Lens Experiment

I’m mildly fascinated by scenes like this.  I’m not sure if the drivers know that the property owner — despite all the signs — does not care about blocking the garages. Or if the car owners just don’t care and are just daring someone to call a tow truck.  Roughly one month into my 50mm experiment, and the cold weather is cutting into my willingness to walk around with a camera, but I’m pushing through.
