Loving Summer ~ Brooklyn, NYC

A life without love is like a year without summer ~ Swedish proverb

Wading through the think humidity that weighs down on Williamsburg, there’s sweet relief in looking up. Up at the leaves that provide shade, listening to their rustle as a breeze runs through them; up at the grey cotton ball clouds, set in formation against the iridescent colours of a NYC dusk.

The days of New York summer are hot, humid, and sensuous; they tease with thunderclouds while wrapping you up in a steamy embrace.

    • thanks Gabriele! I took my camera with no idea what I’d be taking and with how hot it was, looking at the magnificent skies was soothing! It started raining a few hours later πŸ™‚ a nice cool down!

  1. It feels like a loveless life in Stockholm this year: no real summer! But there is hope that the rain and chilly temperatures will go away before the end of August πŸ˜‰
    Love the clouds in your photos, but my favourite one is the first with the shades on the building.

  2. Lovely skies Marina. A nice time to be out and about with a camera. The Manhattan skyline with the Empire State with and without fishing rods are my favourties. πŸ™‚

    • Jenny, I notice the clouds so much more when looking onto Manhattan. In Manhattan, I hardly ever noticed the clouds because of all the buildings! And I agree – their formations always amaze me πŸ™‚ Thank you!

  3. Loving the shots, they are gorgeous! I’ve heard that it’s extremely hot over there at the moment! According to the BBC weather forecast we are expecting some sunshine and proper summer from next week!

    I especially love the shot #4, the sky looks so dramatic! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks so much K! Glad you liked these – it is hot over here but I am learning to appreciate it moreso than staying out of the humidity. Wishing you sun especially for the Olympic Games!

  4. I can only imagine how refreshing that coconut ice must be! Looks to die for – great shots Marina, summer really is in full force there!
