Looking up in New York City

One of my favorite things is to walk New York City streets and photographing it's architecture. I love capturing all the old and newer buildings. I am also intrigued by fire escapes. They have great lines.
Manhattan seems to be always having a new buildings going up. They contrast to all the older buildings

Our recent trip was to Manhattan. Our focus was midtown to the Bowery. We planned our weekend around museum visits. Lots of walking and picture taking.

Spring is here

One of my favorite spots in Massachusetts is the Eleanor Cabot Bradley Estate in Canton. It is a Trustees of the Reservation property. Last Thursday, we had a photo meet-up. The theme 
was gardens. 

Dandelions are not part of the garden theme but I couldn't resist. Ruby the Llama, also, wasn't part of the theme but, she is hard to resist. She is a funny character with quirky expressions.  

We hope to have a show at the Estate in July of our photos. It is a busy time for the estate, many weddings happening there all summer, Stay tuned for details

A side Note: I live in a neighborhood called the Manor. Manor Neighborhood Association has made great strides in making this a nice place to live.

The neighborhood just received a Little Library! It is next to Terri's Market and is super cute. It was painted by Artist, Cindy Mootz

I was the picture taker and it was an honor

The Dedham Square Artist Guild Hosts
A special exhibition hosted at the Dedham Community Theatre
SHOW DATES: May 4 to June 30

Theme: Water is transparent and therefore takes on the colors around it: the blue of the sky, a reflection of a mountain, or the darkness of an approaching storm. We swim in the water or gaze at it from a sandy beach. There is an underwater world and a vastness that comes from sailing on it. What does Water mean to you?

This show will be hosted in the lower gallery at the Dedham Community Theatre! 580 High Street, Dedham, MA

See the show and catch a movie, see what's playing

It so Vibrant, San Fransisco

I love the vibrancy of the neighborhood, Chinatown, in San Fransisco, California. It is hilly and full of lots of lanterns, old signs, restaurants, stores and more... I will always recommend visiting this part of San Fransisco

San Francisco Chinatown is the largest Chinatown outside of Asia as well as the oldest Chinatown in North America. It is one of the top tourist attractions in San Francisco. You can use this site to learn more about the attractions, culture, history, and events in Chinatown. If you plan to visit us, you can book a Chinatown tour, hotel rooms, and more. From this website
