Daily Prompt: Ceremony

A title can never dictate how the heart feels. Nor does it define a relationship. It can’t rationalize the bullshit swept under the rug. Titles, formalities, ceremonies –  seemingly emphasized more than the quality of the relationship. What happens when the ceremony that’s supposed to usher you into a life of partnered stability, protection, andContinue reading “Daily Prompt: Ceremony”

NYC Summer

Inescapable heat intensified by concrete and steel. Throngs of people crowd the streets, dirt envelops all surfaces, the scent of rancid garbage permeates the air. Despite it all, rain is beautiful on a steamy day; the petrichor feeds my soul, relief has washed over my body.  Shot by me at The Brooklyn Barge, Brooklyn NY

Phenomenal Beauty

A rainbow, so seemingly simple, yet complex A beautiful display of science above us, a natural work of art Sun rays, water droplets, light refraction, reflection Standing proudly, stretching yonder for all to see Radiant, amazing in its own right In ideal conditions, a double rainbow is visible A spectacular sight becomes magnified; The rainbowsContinue reading “Phenomenal Beauty”

Slow Down, It’s Snowing…

The photos in this post are not taken from today, but I’m reminded of this moment in time due to today’s first snow shower in Brooklyn.

via Daily Prompt: Flames Flames…  take me back to A New York City sunset on a summer day, emitting stunning shades of orange, yellow, and gray.

InContinue reading “Daily Prompt: Flames – A New York City Sunset”

Cemetery Serenity: Greenwood and Sleepy Hollow

(all photos taken by me) As I’ve gotten older, I’ve developed an appreciation for cemeteries. Walking through a cemetery makes me feel calm and pensive, and somehow a bit safe. It’s a sacred space and almost surreal in the sense that you’re reminded of how fleeting life is. There’s something about being in a cemetery thatContinue reading “Cemetery Serenity: Greenwood and Sleepy Hollow”

Spring, Summer, A Sunflower, and a Farm

                  (image shot by me at Queens County Farm in Queens, NYC) Spring was officially yesterday and it snowed in Brooklyn.

IContinue reading “Spring, Summer, A Sunflower, and a Farm”

Spring Forward! A Sunday Snapshot

Views from Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Spring is almost here and it is getting quite enjoyable to be outside. As much as I love to get away from NYC, I absolutely love the sunsets here. There’s something about the sun shining off the buildings, the shadows that are cast, and the cascading of light down the avenues.Continue reading “Spring Forward! A Sunday Snapshot”
