Cloudy Day Central Park 

It was a cloudy but warm day in Central Park when I shot this clip at the Lake. Lots of people enjoying the start of spring. Can you see the turtle in the clip? He was the perfect model and hung out the entire time.

Spinning Yards

Seems that I missed my chance to get into The Vessel at Hudson Yards. This was my first visit and I was looking forward to getting into the Vessel. I know that they have had some tragic incidents occur. And people lost their lives. Anybody know when it might be opening back up?

New Years 2022 Sign

2022 is just around the corner. And, people are lining up in Times Square to snap pictures in front of the new “2022” sign.  The sign will be moved to the top of  One Times Square on the 23rd in preparation for the ball drop.  

Last year the in-person celebration was cancelled because of Covid. As of now the celebration is still on for 2022.  But, final determination will be announced the mayor by Christmas.

Jane’s Carousel at Brooklyn Bridge Park

I attended a timelapse workshop last year at Brooklyn Bridge Park lead by Emeric LeBars and Brian Youchak. Two awesome timelapse creators. During the workshop I captured this clip of Jane’s Carousel.

The carousel has an interesting history it was formerly the Idora Park Merry-Go-Round. It is a carved, wooden, 48-horse carousel that was built in 1922 for the Idora Park amusement park in Youngstown, Ohio by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company.  It was carved by John Zalar and Frank Carretta. When Idora Park closed to the public in 1984, the carousel was bought at auction. I was moved to Brooklyn for restoration. And, was opened to the public at its new location in Brooklyn Bridge Park on the East River in Brooklyn on September 16, 2011.
