Stock on Monday - Brooklyn Waterfront - Dumbo

One of the most charming places in New York City is the Brooklyn Waterfront by Dumbo and Brooklyn Heights. It's one of my favorite places to visit in the Spring and Summer. Being able to stand right underneath and in between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges is an amazing experience. There's also a beautiful carousel right by the water. The best pizza in Brooklyn can also be found there at Grimaldi's, and you can indulge in some scrumptious ice cream from the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory. What's not to love! Have you ever been to this part of NYC?

End of Summer - Afternoon on a Hill - Friday Quotes

Afternoon on a Hill

Edna St. Vincent Millay, 1892 - 1950
I will be the gladdest thing  
    Under the sun!  
I will touch a hundred flowers  
    And not pick one.  
I will look at cliffs and clouds
    With quiet eyes,  
Watch the wind bow down the grass,  
    And the grass rise.  
And when lights begin to show  
    Up from the town,
I will mark which must be mine,  
    And then start down!

Do you keep them in a bag
Or move them in a sack
Do you fling them to and fro
When you've got someplace to go
Is it a purse or a tote
Do you schlep them on a boat
How do you avoid using plastic
While looking fantastic
If the answer you don't have
I might have some help for that

OneDayOneImage Photography at the Brooklyn Collective I'm so happy to share that my photography is now available at the Brooklyn Collective in Red Hook. The collective is a store/gallery featuring art, photography, accessories, handcrafted jewelry, home decor and originally designed clothing by local artists. It was an honor to be asked to join and I'm thrilled that they chose my Pink Velvet Flowers photo as the art for the shop's Summer event. Below are a few photos of the locale and my display in progress.

Farewell to Kentile Floors

A couple of months ago, I finally 'got my shot' and managed to take a few photos of the iconic Kentile Floors sign in Brooklyn, NY. Little did I know that it would be coming down soon after. It's been a symbol of the Brooklyn skyline for the last 50 years. Technically the sign is located in Gowanus, but it can be seen from the F & G above ground train tracks, the BQE (expressway) and rooftops all around the area. Last week, while driving on the expressway I noticed scaffolding and netting on it and my first thought was that it was being repaired. The sad truth is that it's being taken apart because the owners of the building no longer want it on their premises. The K and E have already been taken down and the rest will follow shortly. A lights art show tribute was planned for last night, but they didn't even wait for that to take place. I'm bewildered that this landmark would be removed, but thankfully it's not being destroyed. It's being preserved by local art group The Gowanus Alliance and will be rebuilt/relocated. Perhaps we have not seen the last of this icon, although it will not be the same without the downtown Brooklyn skyline as its backdrop. As I say goodby to Spring and hello to Summer, I bid farewell to the Kentile Floors sign.

View of Brooklyn, featuring the Kentile Floors sign is available as fine art prints (single, framed, matted or canvas wraps), eco friendly cards and 8x12 posters.

A different image of the Kentile Floors sign is also available for download at Getty Images.

Panama Mola Shot in Action I was so happy to find one of my photos used in a brochure. Most of the time, when a stock photo is downloaded you never know where it will end up. Panamanian Molas are exquisitely handcrafted by members of the Kuna people of Panama. The designs, usually depicting animals, nature or abstract patterns are painstakingly stitched by hand. Molas are highly coveted by both tourists and locals and traditionally presented as framed art, but have now become popular on everything from handbags, to glasses cases, clothing and home decor. In this case the colorful Mola pattern in my photo was used as part of the art for a travel excursion brochure to Panama, Colombia and Costa Rica. Here are a few screenshots of the pamphlet and the original shot. Have you ever been to Panama, Costa Rica or Colombia? If you have, what was your favorite part of the trip?

Magnolias - The Queens of Spring Finally the queens of Spring have bloomed and are showing their colors to perfection. Every year I eagerly look forward to the Magnolia blooms in my area. Brooklyn has so many of them you can't go a few blocks without running into another frothy giant. The flowers are mostly white and pink, but today I saw two unusual varieties in purple and yellow. The highest concentration of these beautiful trees can be found at Magnolia Plaza at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. I do find joy in the ones sprinkled about the residential streets because it's such a welcomed surprise when you find one on a bright Spring day. Here is the beauty I photographed Friday:

School's Out... For Winter

School was not out in NYC, as you may have heard by the intense media coverage last week! I learned recently that New York City has only had 11 snow days since 1978. Actually, this photo was of one of the weekend snowfalls... storm number... I've lost count. The snowflakes were absolutely gigantic and there was something so striking about the empty playground, the snow just beginning to cover the green pavement and the very lonely basketball hoops in the background. Winter has been harsh. The harshest this tropical lady has experienced in years. The landscape in the city is so beautiful when it's covered in white, it just might be worth it. :)

Available for purchase!

Tourist in My City #2 - Green Wood Cemetery


I recently learned that Green Wood Cemetery is and always has been one of New York City's most popular tourist destinations, at least for the last 150 years! A myriad of famous and prominent personalities are buried there and the grounds are spectacular. What I also didn't know is that it's still a working cemetery. So amongst the roamers and tourists you'll also see people actually coming to mourn and pay respects to their loved ones. It's an odd combination, but somehow it works.  For the past 14 years they've held a Memorial Day concert. I used to live eight blocks away from it and was not aware that this event took place. Furthermore, I had not been to Green Wood in seven years. I revisited this lovely place by attending the concert and even though it was rather strange to be sitting by the gravestones listening to music it was a beautiful and peaceful experience. The concert was performed by the ISO Symphonic Band comprised of talented New York students. They played Memorial Day classics like God Bless America and America the Beautiful plus a few pieces composed by permanent residents of the cemetery: Leonard Bernstein & Louis Moreau Gottschalk. It was a wonderful way to honor them and veterans. After the performance I took a walk on the grounds and took these photos. I enjoyed my time there immensely and I hope to return often and soon. If you're even in the area I highly recommend a visit to Green Wood.

Tourist in My City Challenge #1 - Times Square For the last few months I've been planning a photography challenge and I've finally come up with the perfect one. It is often said that those who live in New York City take a lot of what the city has to offer for granted. We live here and many times we go through the motions of going from point A to point B without really absorbing our surroundings. Although I've been photographing city sites for a few years now, I'm still guilty of not truly knowing my adopted hometown. For example, I've never been to Ellis Island or The Statue of Liberty! Well, that stops today.  I have a fantastic list of places I'd like to see, photograph and experience. I will share them with this Tourist in My City Challenge. Perhaps this exercise will also help me to walk a little slower and take everything in, as the tourist do. (much to the dismay of the locals!)  :) My list includes some obscure places that are fascinating due to their history or architecture and also some classics. I'll start with what is probably the most visited place in Manhattan: Times Square:

The Magnolia Feast Continues I was so pleased to see more magnolias blooming yesterday. With bright pink buds opening towards the sun, these trees are by far my favorite and right now I'm in bliss because they're everywhere. What is your favorite Spring flower and have you seen it yet this year? Are you growing them yourself? This year I'm attempting to grow New England asters, bachelor buttons, daisies, marigolds, bee balm & zinnias. The plants are still rather small so I'll expect some nice blooms in early Summer. I'm hoping I'll have enough to use a few as cut flowers and bring the bright colors indoors as well. I cannot wait to photograph them, so stay tuned for that!  There's something supremely satisfying about starting plants from seed.

Awakening Magnolias This time of the year is quite possibly the most magical in NYC. Nature is just starting to reappear after a long Winter slumber and it's not a slow awakening. One day you walk outside and a tree is bare and then the next day it's covered with buds or fully opened flowers. Magnolias are usually the first and eager to make an appearance. I found a couple of trees putting on quite a show. White magnolias are quick to emerge as they only need to feel a little bit of warmth to know it's their time to shine. The pink heavier and regal magnolias tend to open more slowly as you can see below. When the trees are in full bloom it's a truly magnificent spectacle as I saw last year when all the trees bloomed at the same time at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens and their fragrance was a heavenly assault on the senses. This year, Spring has been shy to arrive, but it's just as encouraging and hopeful to see scattered blooms here and there. It's a firm promise of warmer times ahead!

Empire State of Mind

I often walk around NYC and find myself in neighborhoods like Chelsea, Flatiron & Herald Square. By far, my favorite sight is the Empire State Building. In a way, it's like the Mona Lisa's eyes. Everywhere you go it follows you and it is beautiful, imposing and statuesque from every angle. My favorite time of the day to shoot it is in the morning when the sun shines right on it and the windows sparkle. Above are some of the shots I've taken of this omnipresent landmark. I confess, I've only been upstairs once, and I"ve not yet been to the observation deck made famous by so many films, including the beloved classics Sleepless in Seattle and An Affair to Remember. The tourist lines are usually wrapped around the block! I cannot wait to photograph it at night some day very soon. Of course, everyone takes photos of it, but I feel privileged to have the chance to do it on regular basis.

Macy's & the Empire, and Empire & The Garden prints available!

Happy Valentines Day - Romance on the boardwalk


I took this photo a couple years ago on the Coney Island Boardwalk. There was just something striking about this couple, so care free, taking photos for their wedding. Even though they were in formal attire, their demeanor was totally relaxed, as you can see by the flip flops and I wish I'd captured them chowing down on some KFC minutes before! It was a treasured moment for them, and I enjoyed it as well. 

With Sandy come and gone, I often wonder if the Boardwalk will every be the same, and all of Coney Island for that matter. I hope there are many more special moments there in the future both for the locals inhabitants and visitors who love it so much. Myself included. 

May you have a lovely time with friends, partners and family. Feliz Dia del Amor y la Amistad, as we say in my home country. Having 'friendship' be part of the greeting makes a lot of sense to me.

Featured on RedBubble and mi bello Panama

The start of 2013 is turning out to be fantastic! Firstly, I received a RedBubble prints promo today and my 'Take Me Out' photo of Citi Field was included once again. I'm very happy and grateful for this 'printsly' feature! Secondly I had the chance to escape the cold and visit the balmy tropics of Panama (my home country) this past week with many many photography opportunities. I've already posted the shot I took of Gatun lake, which is just so lush and beautiful. The entire area of Gamboa is protected so the Panama Canal can function properly. The Canal uses the natural movement of water from the lakes, rivers and oceans so the eco-system must be pristine so water levels can be optimal. It's great to see a technological marvel that does not hurt nature and works with it. I will be sharing more photos of both city and nature Panamanian landscapes! Also stay tuned for the upcoming full 12 month calendar giveaway, which I will be posting shortly!
