Magical Moment 450, "A Walk in Brooklyn"

My timing is still not great when I'm estimating transportation time from Jersey to Brooklyn. I arrived about an hour early for a gig I played last night (video to come in a few days). So I took the opportunity to walk the blocks near Fulton Street. 

These were the first lilacs of the season that I've seen...and smelled.

I'm sure there's a garden back there somewhere. In the meantime, the tulips were lovely.

Came across this grand old church.

Well, we are in New York City. Gotta love the garbage lined streets. 

Its always fun to explore new unfamiliar areas. Hope I'll be back in Brooklyn soon (maybe the same gig will hire me back....here's hoping!).

Wow - lilacs alREADY ! They're beautiful. We're lucky to have an acre or more of them and I'm amazed how they'll go from green unopened buds (now) to these blooms in the next couple of weeks.

Good use of your 'unplanned' time ;-)

I wish I could have seen the looks sent your way by anyone who saw you photographing the garbage. :)
