See You Next Year, Fred!

October 22nd, 2009 Posted by Photo Journey No Comment yet

I love farmers markets.  I love the color and smell of fresh produce! It’s a cool Saturday morning in early fall. We took the free downtown bus to catch the last day of farmers market at South Street Sea Port.

We bought our usual battalion of vegetables and continued to seek out eggless pastries. For some reasons, whenever I asked, “Are your pastries eggless?”, I would always get a shock blank look from the seller, like I just spoke French or something.  Oh well…. we moved on.

And just before we left the market, there he was, Fred!

I caught him resting on the grape tomatoes. He then flew to the next basket, grasping on to the scallions. See you next year, Fred!

Where: Fulton Stall Market, South Street Seaport. Located on South Street, between Fulton and Beekman Streets. Every Saturday in summer to early fall., 10-6pm.

When: Sept 26, 2009.

Faking it in New York City

October 9th, 2009 Posted by Photo Journey No Comment yet

I was walking around in South Street Seaport with my friend Daphne trying to get a good night scene picture of the Brooklyn Bridge. We turned around, saw the beach and though that it will be good spot to test out her new Nikon D5000 camera. We just snapped away. I simply just love this picture with the lights, the Brooklyn Bridge and the ‘relaxing mood’ that was captured. Skyscraper, Sand, City!

Manhattanites live on an island. We are surrounded by water but there is no one beach insight.  Someone came up with this great idea to have an artificial beach in New York City in 2005, similar to the ‘Paris Beach’ along River Seine.

The first water taxi beach in NYC started in Queens, then South Street Seaport and the most recent one opened in Governor’s Island on July 2009.  (Their office website is here.)

I think this is amazing idea (though faking it)! After hours walking on hard cement, my soles (or soul?) love the feeling of having sand beneath it, the next best thing to walking on a real beach!
