Photo of the Week: Sakura

IMG_2003Brooklyn, USA

My parents came over to visit this past week and we went to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden to see the cherry blossoms.  Even though we were not there during the Sakura Festival, the park was still full of people out enjoying a beautiful spring afternoon. The promenade of cherry trees in full bloom is  sight to behold.  They even insisted on taking a few selfies in front of the delicate flowers. I managed to sneak in a picture of them while they were doing it.

Photo of the Week: NYC

I love walking, that’s probably the biggest reason why I love living in New York.  If you have the time, you can walk from the top to the bottom of Manhattan and explore the different neighborhoods that are constantly changing.  This past weekend, we decided to take a walk across the iconic Brooklyn Bridge on a lovely sunny day.  From the bridge you can see the Manhattan skyline across the East River.  You can also see the Empire State Building as well as the Chrysler Building in this photo.

This weekend is Sakura Matsuri, the 35th annual cherry blossom festival at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.  It’s the peak time to see all the beautiful spring flowers in bloom. This picture was taken on a stroll of the Japanese garden, a little piece of calmness in the center of chaos.  It was a beautiful Saturday and thousands of people made the trip to Prospect Park not just to enjoy the flowers but to take in the colorful cosplay and and performances at the festival.

Photo of the Week: Abandoned

IMG_7481Red Hook, NY

On a photography excursion to Red Hook, I saw this old abandoned train.  I had to climb in and take a picture of the inside.  There was bright sunlight filtering through the windows creating a nice contrast against the grimy interior. Sometimes old broken things are full of character and beauty.

Photo of the Week: Promenade

IMG_4456Brooklyn, New York

Home sweet home.  I never get tired of looking at the New York skyline no matter how many times I see it, from all the different angles and vantage points. This particular picture was taken from the Brooklyn Heights promenade with the idyllic view of the Brooklyn bridge spanning the East river to lower Manhattan on the other side.  This park is a great place to get away from the bustling city and hosts many activities from yoga sessions to free movie nights. It is also a great place to take your date on a romantic stroll.

Photo of the Week: Brooklyn Bridge

IMG_4442Brooklyn, New York

As much as I love to travel, I also love spending time in New York City, especially when the weather is nice.  One of the best ways to get to know the city is by walking, and you can walk across this iconic bridge spanning from lower Manhattan to downtown Brooklyn. The Brooklyn bridge is one of the oldest bridges in the United States. 

There are designated walkways and bike lanes on the bridge so you’ll never have to worry about oncoming traffic, but make sure you walk off to the side to avoid the bikes that come whipping by. Once you get to the half-way point, stop at the lookout points where you can check out the Manhattan skyline.
