Travel Theme: Pink

By Vladimir Brezina

Ailsa’s travel-themed photo challenge this week is Pink.

In NYC’s Central Park not so long ago, pink was an artificial color.

Pink in Winter

But very soon now, it will grow on every tree—

These photos were taken in April 2013. Hopefully, a preview of coming attractions!

Another classic NYC event, later on in June, at which pink is surely the ruling color is here.

Happy Winter!

By Vladimir Brezina

Ailsa’s travel-themed photo challenge this week is Winter.

In NYC, meteorological Winter has been with us for quite some time. And with tomorrow’s Winter Solstice, astronomical Winter starts as well. But there is a silver lining—even though the coldest days are yet to come, from today the day length will steadily increase toward Spring…

In the meantime, Happy Winter!

However, for reasons that can’t be gainsaid, we are off to Florida for a week’s paddling, in regions that even WordPress cannot reach… Happy Holidays, and see y’all when we get back!

North Versus South

Different materials, but the same impulse. It’s a united country after all…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Let There Be Light, Take Two

By Vladimir Brezina

This week’s Photo Challenge is Let There Be Light! Our first response was here, but here’s another, quite different take on the theme…

Little pools of light in the gathering darkness… The lamps come on in NYC’s Central Park on a snowy night.

February 8, 2013. More photos are here. And yet a third interpretation of “Let There Be Light!” is here.

Playing in the Snow

By Vladimir Brezina

DSC_0795 cropped smallWhat a difference a day makes!

The morning after the snowstorm, we came out into Central Park to find thousands of people playing in the snow and sunshine.
