Scenes from a nearby barrier island


Here are some photographs from my brief but lovely stay in Cherry Grove, Fire Island last week. A soothing balm, and the friends I stayed with had a little oasis of a cottage on the bayside. It was so serene and lovely that I didn’t even go off on a wander to photograph more of the town this time— and that’s rare for me.

More photos after the jump.

A quiet wander through a green wood (part the first)


This is part one of two, as I took a slew of photos this afternoon, walking through Green-Wood Cemetery with my younger brother, in town for a few days. This cemetery is very near my apartment, yet I haven’t been since last summer. It was a trip to release one of my goldfish (grown too large for my tank) into the beautifully tended koi and comet pond there.

Here begins Elysium.

On the farm after a sudden, short downfall


I apologize— I missed my Monday posting deadline! I’ve been posting a lot lately, but was somewhat busy leading up to go out of town and come upstate. Here are some photographs from around the farm earlier today. There was a brief, thundering deluge around 11am or so. Then the sky brightened which is always a good time for photos I’ve found. Much more so than a sunny day, depending on the sort of images one wants.

Coming soon to a city near you: Park Days!

Had a large wander last Sunday while it was sunny and 60º in Brooklyn. Around and about Williamsburg (where these photos were procured) including a stop in East River Park; Kent Ave, under the bridge and through Fort Greene, finally wending our way back to South Slope. Ten miles of walking on the first day that felt like Spring.

Annex B. Why did the photographer stand so far away? (Although I rather like the composition). And an alternate cropping.
