… float…

“But, for all that, they had a very pleasant walk. The trees were bare of leaves, and the river was bare of water-lilies; but the sky was not bare of its beautiful blue, and the water reflected it, and a delicious wind ran with the stream, touching the surface crisply.”

- Charles Dickens

Above the Heights…

It seems like a fleeting memory but it was warm enough, not too long, that strolling along the water was a good idea. However right now it would be beautiful it would undoubtedly be too cold!
So in memory of the not too distant warm weather behind us (and in our future).. enjoy these photos from a walk through Inwood Hill Park this past fall.

…a fall evening on the lake…

Still love sunsets! That will always be one of my most loved times of day!
And because this summer (and fall) have been full of sunsets that I didn’t post photos of (or didn’t even take photos of because… Gasp…. I didn’t feel like taking out my camera) here is one beautiful one from this past fall…

One good thing to look forward to as we approach winter is all the upcoming (although we all know it is actually here!), dramatic and breath-taking winter sunsets!
And I promise I will post them :)!

…Fall in upstate!…

We are so lucky to be able to get out and enjoy nature outside the city (although there are plenty of outdoorphins to enjoy within the city too) as much as we do! Thankfully, in part, to all the wonderful friends we have in upstate New York!
Two of our upstate friends tied the knot this past fall on Brant Lake on a beautiful weekend! Here’s a collection of fall photos from their wedding weekend….

…Ohhhh Sandy…

Walking around in your own neighborhood and being one of the lucky ones is really an odd feeling. I had my camera with me as I walked around DUMBO the day after Sandy brutalized the east coast. I only snapped a few shots; maybe I was overwhelmed, in a state of shock or truly realizing how lucky we were. These few photos don’t capture nearly the enormity of the situation but here are the shots I snapped….

…Yet despite the insanity around it… The Brooklyn Bridge still stood mighty and strong…

And, now, having been a part of one of this monumental NYC events I am amazed at the community my city, of 8 million, has. I wish everyone could take the kind of love and commitment they have towards helping each other and embrace it without having a natural disaster be the root of it.
