New York, New York

Far We've been traveling far Without a home But not without a star Free Only want to be free We huddle close Hang on to a dream On the boats and on the planes They're coming to America Never looking back again They're coming to America . "America" - Neil Diamond . I remember when I first heard this song years ago. I couldn't help but feel real proud to be part of a country that stood for hope of a new life for many looking to immigrate here. . The song's music and lyrics, emotional and uplifting in tone, evoke a sense of optimism by painting the United States as a land of opportunity. Sadly, in this day in age, as U.S. immigration laws seem to cross the lines of human rights violations, that same message may have been nulled. Ideologies like "Seeking the American Dream" and "Making American Great" seem in contrast with each other as the country grows more polarized by negative rhetoric. Personally, I'd like to think that we can "Make America Great Again." But not at the expense of those trying to "Seek the American Dream." . . 📷: @apple iPhone 8 plus 💻: Lightroom Mobile .

Queens, New York

Lucky 7. 🚇 Good Morning Insta-world. As promised, I'm posting. Here's one from the photo vaults. Did this with a couple of years ago with a group of IG peeps who "needed" to get this shot. Apparently, at the time, this composition was relatively new on the insta-webs. Then someone posted it, and everyone had to get it. . Though a nice composition, for me the appeal was to see one of my favorite Queens line. Back in the day, I used to take this line to go to Woodside. For me, it was always interesting because of all the different nationalities that would get on that train. I've heard many complain about the line. But for me, it holds some fun memories. . What's your favorite NYC Subway line? . ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• .

Monday Blues

EMERGENCY EXIT Good Morning It's Monday! The beginning of another work week! Aren't you excited??? Nope? It's ok. Neither I. In fact, I don't know about you, but I'm ALREADY ready to pull on the "Emergency Exit" and slide right into the weekend. Are you like me and get into that "Mondaze" where you are in and out of it because you are still wishing it was th weekend? I'm not going to like. I don't like Mondays. Do you? Let me know in the comments. . . .

New York, New York

Tomorrow is Another Day. True Story. Fact 1: This amazing sunrise happened on the morning of November 1, 2017. It was gorgeous and awe inspiring. But what was more touching was the fact that this was the morning after an act of terror on the streets of NYC during Halloween. That hainus act of violence, as I remember, put the city on edge. But as always, New Yorkers showed resilience even during such evil acts. And that is a testament to always remember that even during dark times, the show must go on. Fact 2: I didn't have a camera on hand so I just shot it with my phone. No, really. Just my phone. And with a little editing, it was just fine. You live to catch another sunrise (with your camera) another day. The moral of the story is...to keep going no matter what set backs may arise. . . .

One World Trade Center

Today's forecast calls for... So like a weather person, my original forecast of what I thought I would post, changed. Originally, I said I would probably post a photo taken with a mobile phone. But when as I woke to this morning's rain, that went out the door. Do you ever find that your posts reflect what the weather is like outside? And if so, do you feel that your photo does better if it fits the mood of the day? Let me know in the comments. Happy Rainy Tuesday, Everyone! . . .

Jersey City, New Jersey

"Golden Showers" Summer officially began today but with the all this rain this morning, you wouldn't know it. I was a little undecided if I should have posted a nice "summer" or "rain" type of shot. Well, I couldn't make up my mind so this one will make do. Have a great weekend everyone! . . .

Jersey City, New Jersey

"One day it started raining, and it didn't quit for four months. We been through every kind of rain there is. Little bitty stingin' rain, and big ol' fat rain, rain that flew in sideways, and sometimes rain even seemed to come straight up from underneath. Shoot, it even rained at night" ~ Forest Gump Seems like we've had 2-4 raindays per week, every week, for the past couple of months. It's safe to say, a lot of us are over it. 🤔 . . . Are you sick of all this rain? Let me know in the comments. . . . . .

Empire State Building

Ray of Light. During my time away, there were a few people that kept asking me why I had stopped posting. But rather than just stop at their inquiry, these same people also would encourage me to post again. That's the kind of push that sometimes is needed as motivation. Those of you out there who were my "rays of light," I thank you. Eventhough it took me a while to get back, your words were never forgotten. . . . .

One World Trade Center

Just the tip! Good Morning, Instagrmers! No, you're not imagining things. After a long hiatus, I'm finally posting again. Not going to lie. It kind of feels weird. I haven't completely been off the gr. Just haven't been on this side of the screen. It's kind of like riding a bike for the first time after not ridden one in a long time. You know how to do it but you're a little wobbly at first. So just like that process, I going to start things slow because I'm sure things will be slow. I'm basically starting from scratch. No azing far places or views. It's all from "ground zero." I've been in the dark but now it's time come out and see the world again. So you're only seeing the "tip" of what's to come. . . . .
