Washington DC and Capital Bikeshare

I spent a few days in Washington DC and enjoyed doing the usual tourist things. I have visited DC on many occasions but this time  I decided to use Capital Bike Share . It is a wonderful way to get around with the added benefit of being inexpensive.
A day pass costs just $8 and you get to borrow the bike in 20-minute segments. Most of the sights are easily accessible in that time and I did not go over at any time. I really  cannot recommend this enough, Yo can so easily cover so much more ground than walking.

Mikes Miscellaneous Mondays 5/21/2018. Yellow Cabs NYC

I've been in a major creative slump of late. In an effort to get going again I have been trying to take at least one photo every day. The idea that the best camera is always the one that you have with you is so true. These were all taken with my iPhone.
Yellow cabs have been a theme in my NYC photography for a long time and I'm pretty sure will remain so.

Out and About Springtime in The Bronx

The Irish Hunger Memorial, Lower Manhattan

In the shadow of the Freedom Tower is a memorial to the victims of the Irish Famine. The main part of the memorial is a reconstructed famine era cottage from County Mayo. There are many of these abandoned cottages around Ireland. They were vacated because of death or emigration.
