on exploring.

well, these aren't pictures from my weekend, but they are pictures from the weekend before. i spent a little time walking around my neighborhood and other parts of brooklyn i didn't know. it's amazing what you can find on a day where the sky is brilliant and you manage to walk slowly. here's to exploring close to home.

  1. These are great pictures! I was just telling Caleb this past weekend that I want to spend more time exploring our area. We've lived here for almost 2 years but there's just so many restaurants, parks, and little towns left to explore! It's easy for us to get stuck in our rut of going to the same places, taking the same roads, etc, but I want to branch out more.

    1. thanks lady! I do the same thing (rut) but I'm also a biiiiiig culprit of saying "we have to go here for a weekend trip! we have to go there for a weekend trip!" this was a good reminder to take advantage of all the culture and things to explore right outside my door.

  2. I am bummed that we only spent a few measly hours in Brooklyn, it is definitely a place that warrants some serious exploring. Interesting to see the Polish signs, I didn't realise Brooklyn had a big Polish community!

    1. NYC has it all when it comes to european immigrants communities thanks to Ellis island. the polish part of Brooklyn is greenpoint, the German part of manhattan is yorkville/upper east side, the Irish and Italian immigrants were heavily located in the lower east side...the list goes on. you'll definitely have to come back and explore more!

  3. Oh, the blue skies!! I love exploring around your home city, and it is so much easier to do when the weather improves. Love some of those old industrial buildings. The polish stuff reminds me of Chicago... there is a HUGE Polish population here. Upcoming weekends will need to include some exploring of neighborhoods around here!

  4. I love taking a camera around the place you live, you see so many new things. We have a lot of old buildings around here and one day I was walking around and noticed all the old signage that had worn away, but was still visible. It was fun imaging what it would have looked like in the past.

  5. I need to do some of this around my area! It's easy to look over the beauty in my own backyard. And I know there is lots of it, I just need to spend the time exploring. Love those photos of your neighborhood!
