Back home to my normal routine

Returning home from our Brooklyn visit, I reverted to my habit of photographing the pond. This one was taken shortly after a storm the day of our return on July 20th.

This second photo was taken a few days later. It's always the same pond, but everyday it's different.

Brooklyn visit: shadows from a Flatbush fence

I got temporarily lost on some of the walks which made me think of the Thomas Wolfe short story "Only the Dead Know Brooklyn." Although my phone gives this location as Flatbush, I think I was nearer the Kensington section, but what do I know.

Brooklyn visit: other walks

I went on many walks around their neighborhood as well as in the cemetery. This bar and grill which has been there since 1933 caught my eye:

Prospect Park was also a frequent walking destination. This is a shot Pam took of me next to the lake. Once again, I was neglectful in not photographing her:

Brooklyn visit: Greenwood Cemetary

Green wood is a  famous, old cemetery which is across the street from Rebecca and Sean.

In the 19th and early 20th centuries, the well-off spent money on elaborate stone grave markers.

Brooklyn visit: Family

 Here is granddaughter Honor with mother and father in the new apartment at Windsor Terrace:

Next is Sean, Rebecca, and I moving Honor and the baby equipment into the Air B&B we rented which was a short walk away:

Then pictured is Greg, Rebecca, Sean, and I at the dinner table in the townhouse we rented:

 Pam is unfortunately missing from these photos because she took them. I was negligent for not taking any shots of her with Honor.

Queen Ann's Lace (or something very similar)


Poltical messages in the park

Protests against racism have been going on all over the country for weeks. During my walks I've seen messages in chalk written on the walkways, but it's usually difficult to fit in the entire message into a photograph without resorting to an elevated platform. This is one message that I was able to get in most of:

It went with the familiar "Black Lives Matter" message nearby and lists a website entitled "young, black, and aware."

Rainbow over Colesville

We've had a couple of nice ones over the last week or so. Pam took this shot:
