2021: To Mask or Not to Mask in Manhattan

A couple of weeks ago, before Manhattan officially allowed  “vaccinated” folks to walk the streets maskless, I was in this very city all masked up. So, these were my thoughts while walking through the streets. Also, I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph strangers with their permission and with their masks on. 🙂 While the majority… Continue reading 2021: To Mask or Not to Mask in Manhattan

2021: Memory Lane at Port Jeff

So, the other day I visited Port Jeff (short for Port Jefferson) – or Down Port, as the locals call it. It brought back a lot of memories and it is one of the highlights on Long Island. It’s about a twenty minute drive from my house or about two hours by train from Manhattan. And… Continue reading 2021: Memory Lane at Port Jeff

2021: Visiting the Nassau County Museum of Art

The side view of the Nassau County Museum of Art. Long Island – I stood on acres and acres of grass, surrounded by abstract art. A series of metal rectangular shapes were positioned one behind the other almost ready to fall like a domino.

I think Iceland has become a top travel destination. And I imagine that once the pandemic is diminished there will be more tourists flooding there. Before September of 2018, I had no idea what Iceland was or even of its existence. When I first heard of Iceland, it just conjured up scenes from the ice… Continue reading 2018: The People of Iceland – Part One

2019: A Stroll through the City

The weather app forecasted a chance of rain. Thankfully, though, the blue skies stayed put. In the mid afternoon my mom and I strolled through Manhattan through 10th and 9th Avenue away from the brewing crowds in Times Square. We just came from a Play about Filipinos and immigration called Felix Starro. And I wanted… Continue reading 2019: A Stroll through the City

2019: Audience of the Opera

This is the outside of the Metropolitan Opera. Also, I enjoy stalking photography. 😛 From time to time, or, rather whoever will pay for me, I enjoy going to the Opera! This the interior of the Opera House. It's minutes before we had to head to our seats. People's eye sights were glued to someone,… Continue reading 2019: Audience of the Opera
