I knew I'd be heading to Brooklyn a couple of times for some shopshoots, so I picked up my cameras and went out exploring.
On my first visit, I walked from Brooklyn Borough Hall back to Manhattan.
I passed some beautiful houses in Brooklyn Heights, some of which were being used for location shoots.
I walked along the promenade for a look at the New York skyline and a touching memorial to 9/11. I managed to walk the Brooklyn Bridge without being bowled over by a cyclist but it was a bit hair raising at times.
I love this photo I shot on film during my visit to Williamsburg.
My last visit to Brooklyn was purely for my enjoyment. I visited the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, which was one of the highlights of my trip. I'm sorry to learn how much damage was done to the gardens by Hurricane Sandy.
I visited the gardens on a gloriously sunny Saturday. I explored the rose garden and the Japanese Gardens.
I admired the bonsais that were on display in the greenhouse.
I have plenty more images of pre-Sandy New York to share with you over the coming weeks. I'll see you all again next week, so until then
