It always surprises me how beautiful Central Park is! I suppose since it’s in the middle of a bustling city, my expectations for beauty are low. But if you really walk through, there are so many pretty spots and gorgeous backgrounds. These images are from my walk through the park last week. Lots of trees and early spring plants were just starting to bloom. I’m looking forward to going back!
For the first time I walked across the Brooklyn Bridge, which I loved doing! The walkway goes across the center of the bridge and the views are amazing, from the river to the skyscrapers to the other bridges nearby. Not to mention the famously beautiful architecture of the bridge, which lends itself to a million different types of images!
My new occasional hobby is taking photos with my iPhone while on a plane. The trouble is that I’m a rule follower and the rules are that phones are to be turned off during take-off and landing. Oh, and did I mention that I’m a bit of a nervous flyer? So when they say turn off your electronics, I’d like passengers to actually do that. Except, I want to take some photos.. and the best times are during take off and landing, when everything is to be off. So sometimes I’ll put my iPhone on airplane mode and take a few shots if the skies are cooperating. These are from a recent flight when we were landing at Laguardia. My issue with these plane shots is they’re not the best clarity since they are through a window. But the view cannot be beaten! My favorites are the shots of the Verrazano bridge.
