Brooklyn is a piece of the city that’s made up of many colours and textures. It’s usually the flavour of a place that gets my immediate attention, but here I’ve dished up a compilation of things that merely caught my eye whilst walking about the streets of this dynamic borough.
Mornings were my favourite time of day to explore. The light is perfect, the streets aren’t crowded, and you catch glimpse of the locals going about their usual routine. The elderly woman above was shuffling up to Smith Street with a trolley of magazines in tow. It was her sweet singing that captivated me.
Brilliant blue skies and eye-catching warehouses litter the urban landscape.
Everyone does the Brooklyn Bridge, but having the Williamsburg Bridge close to our apartment meant a morning walk to Manhattan and back was a good way to get fresh air and a touch of exercise.
The train driver even tooted his horn a couple of times and waved when he spotted me taking a photo.
A plethora of faces everywhere. Colourful locals, graffiti and the occasional one peering from a shop window.
Urban gardening and a damn fine way to recycle your old sneakers.
Thanks for having us, Brooklyn!
