Waiting for Our New Arrival

We’ve been radio silent recently trying to enjoy the calm before our baby arrives this Fall.  Excitement, terror and everything in between would be a fair description of what we’re feeling.  We spent a couple of nice days at Amelia Island in Florida to squeeze in some final “us” time, where we took these self-portraits.  As much as we try to prepare, I’m sure there’ll be a million things we’ve missed but hopefully our little one (a baby girl!), will bear with us as we figure this parenthood thing out.

A Time Series of the High Line

About a year and a half into living on the East Coast, I’m finally beginning to appreciate the changing of the seasons.  The parks of Manhattan, especially the High Line and Central Park, dramatically demonstrate these changes.  I began taking these photographs of the High Line at the end of Winter, with the intention of capturing the transformation from Winter to Spring.  What a difference 2.5 months can make!  The first photograph in each series shows the park with all of the growth that survived the cold.  The second shows the park immediately after the Spring Cutback, a massive coordinated effort to trim back overgrowth in preparation for new growth in the Spring.  The third shows the park at the height of Spring, with lush greenery that seems to have sprouted overnight.  Click here to view in large.

An Architectural Tour of Midtown Manhattan

It’s pretty easy to live in New York and forget just how beautiful the city is. Since we got lucky with some good weather post-Sandy / Nor’easter, I armed myself with a camera and joined the tourists in Midtown Manhattan to get a closer look at this city of mine.  Sorry if I ticked off some of my fellow New Yorkers by constantly looking up and walking in zigzags.

After the Storm – Walking Through Sandy’s Aftermath

The morning after the worst of Hurricane Sandy had passed through Manhattan, we walked from the West Village down to Battery Park City to scope out the damage.  It’s a pretty long walk but we were tired of being cooped up indoors without any electricity and more than a little curious.  Even though the damage in the parts of the city that we did see didn’t seem all too bad, Sandy had definitely taken its toll.  We still don’t have electricity and our neighborhood is positively eerie at night.  Still, our hearts go out to the families who are still dealing with the ramifications of the storm.

Autumn At Walkway Over the Hudson in Poughkeepsie, NY

The weekend of Sandy’s arrival, we had already planned to spend a couple of days in Poughkeepsie to walk across the Walkway Over the Hudson, a steel cantilever pedestrian bridge with access from Poughkeepsie, NY and Highland, NY.  Crossing our fingers that we wouldn’t get stranded out there, we took the Metro North train up on Friday.  The views from the bridge are pretty spectacular and I love that with the Culinary Institute of America so close by, there are some great restaurants in the area.  It’s also close enough for a daytrip from NYC so we’ll be back again, this time hopefully without the added distraction of impending hurricanes.

Theresa - I live 5 miles from the walkway and go there frequently. It’s great to see it through a visitors viewpoint. Gorgeous pictures. Glad you enjoyed your stay & next time definately go to eat. Poughkeepsie has some great restaurants! If you go down to the Mt Carmel section (which is pictured in your first photo), stop by for cannoli.

Autumn on the High Line – Colors Galore

As Hurricane Sandy slowly makes its debut outside my window, I thought I’d share some photos from this past weekend before the rain descended.  High Line Gardener, Maeve Turner, took a group of High Line photographers out to capture images of Fall foliage currently on view.  With so many blooms in sight, it’s hard to believe that Winter is just around the corner.
