Some Scenes From a Pier One Walk

On Friday morning I took a quick turn around Pier 1, Brooklyn Bridge Park, before heading to work. As I was lining up a shot of Mark di Suvero’s Yoga, a small branch with some dry leaves fell in front of me. I didn’t notice it until I downloaded the photo; it’s at the right side of the picture (click on it to enlarge). More photos and text after the jump.
Rounding a corner of a path, I startled some sparrows. They flew up, then alighted on a fence.
These are rose hips from Rosa rugosa, near the Granite Prospect, where Patti Smith will read and sign books this Monday evening, August 6, at 7:00.
Sailing up the East River, a sloop approaches the Manhattan Bridge.

    What is “after the jump” ? What does that mean?

    The “jump” is the additional text, photos etc associated with the article that you only see when clinking on the article or a “read more” link. The Home Page only shows a portion of each article.

    While I reviewed comments about Mark di Suvero’s “Yoga” posted last December, I was wondering about Karl’s opinion and that of others of the new triple installation of dead tree trunks. And contrary to some opinions, Brooklyn Bridge Park is NOT a natural but man-made environment, albeit a successful one that I cherish.

    Lovely photos Claude. No matter what anyone says this park is a real joy.
