I did do some photography this weekend but it was for another post (finally getting some projects photographed!). So I went scrounging through my folders. I knew I had some pictures from the Brooklyn Botanical Garden saved just for a day like this. Flowering bonsais. But when I looked at those pictures, I wasn’t inspired. Maybe some other time, they’ll be just the thing… I did find two I loved though.
This first one is from early April! I was never going to share it. The focus didn’t end up in the right place (it’s on the branch rather than the flower) but yesterday, I saw it and I loved it. It has that dreamy artsy quality I’ve been craving lately.
And this one was taken more recently.
I’ve always loved the view from the three windows in the living room. They’re all on the same wall but face in different directions. One looks out across the street. Now that the tree’s leaves are fully grown, I can hardly see the building on the other side. Another one looks a little up the street towards the church on the corner (there are so many churches here!). And the last one looks down the street and gives me a great view of the souther tip of Manhattan. I never get bored of it. I’ve shared it a little bit but I can never seem to do it justice. So I tend to admire it without my camera. That morning though, the rising Sun was hitting the skyscrapers just so, making them glow like embers. I had to try again. It’s a pale copy of the original but I’ll keep trying.
