Basking under the sun’s rays, lounging on the greenest of grass, sneaking in a little sweet indulgence, browsing through treasures at the local flea, listening to the sounds of salsa…
If all the days of Spring and Summer could be like those that graced New York this weekend, I don’t think I’d ever want to leave the city. Here’s a taste.
Admiring nature’s elegant fringe.
Reclining in the great outdoors. Empire State Building, to the right.
Greeting the new espresso bar Sweetleaf to the ‘hood who lucked it with a perfect opening weekend. An americano, made with precision, accompanied by a cherry and chocolate scone – so worth it.
Walking through the Graham Avenue Fiesta in East Williamsburg.
Queueing up for sugary-sweet snow cones.
Browsing the stalls for garden inspiration.
Grooving to the tunes; dancing in the streets.
Now’s the time for hat shopping.
Catching some shade after a long sun soak.
Picture-worthy windows under the afternoon’s rays.
Visiting the delightful Sunday Brooklyn Flea Market.
Thinking ahead – gifts for Father’s Day (on June 16 in US).
Spotting adorable hand painted hanging art.
Rifling through trinkets and treasures.
Smiling over stuffed drawers of old photographs and postcards.
Wondering what stories these suitcases could tell.
Thinking up uses for these tiny bottles. Beads? Seeds? Potions?
Remembering the rotary telephone – now an antique showpiece next to the smartphone.
Hanging T’s against uptown views…
… Williamsburg Bridge and New York’s tallest, One World Trade Centre, in Manhattan’s downtown.
Appreciating the best of both worlds.
Rotating street art points in the direction of home.
