Water Everywhere


My favorite duck pond with lotus and lilies near the Irish Hunger Memorial.
The pool reflects the towering buildings but retains a human scale.


The ducks, like ducks anywhere, are very greedy.



In Battery Park a play area with a sprinkler.
In the very far distance you can see the Statue of Liberty.



Rotting wooden pilings in the Hudson in Chelsea. I'm always attracted to elegant and picturesque decay.



On 9th Avenue the playground sprinklers make a star design.
Sprinklers rule in August.

  8. Haha...I was thinking of M.Kate when looking at the first photo :) All wonderful! Love your 'picturesque decay' shot. I bet birds enjoy sitting on those wooden poles :)
