LANDSCAPES

I got my first digital camera in June when I was in Pocono Manor in Pennsylvania. Then we returned to Queens and walked only in Queens and Manhattan.

The header of this post shows a wonderful example of the landscape architecture. Another example is below. I edited both pictures today to give more color and life.

I also want to show you a black and white photo shot in the Flushing Meadow Park in Queens. Hope that you’ll like combination of nature with buildings of the great city.

Yesterday Cee started #17 “Which Way” photo challenge.

This time I read again what is acceptable for the challenge and decided to show as many elements Cee described.as possible in three photos of the Rego Center in Queens. All shots made early in the morning as I wanted to show beautiful lights in the Center.

WHICH WAY?

One family’s kingdom

There are many hundreds of two-stories sections in the area where we live.

The photo below shows the one that is about 100 metres from our apartment house.

I love this one family’s beautiful kingdom. I am sorry that I am unable to show you a tiny stream with waterfalls among greenery as it’s not running at the moment.

We build families, kingdoms, beauty, happiness.

Surely, our lives have sense!

The Vermont’s apartments

After 80 years of living in different countries with different political and economic systems, cultures, moral values, attitude to value of each person I always ask one simple question: “Why?”.

Below is a photo of a backyard of the Vermont’s apartments. This apartment house is only two blocks from our apartment house. There are many similar houses in the area but only this one has such wonderful backyard where its residents (especially kids and senior citizens) relax and play.

Why only this one?

What do you think?
