a stroll in the snow before Sunday brunch

 – slideshow photos taken in the Stockade and Riverside Park before 9 AM Sunday, Dec. 15, 2013 –

Long before Sunday brunch, I was out strolling with my camera to explore the Stockade after our first real snowstorm of the season.  I traversed only Washington Avenue, Front St. to Lawrence, N. Ferry to Union St., Union back to Washington Ave., and then Riverside Park. Snow removal was the predominant activity I encountered, plus a single dog-walker (in the Park), a smoker on a frosty stoop, a pre-schooler helping dad, and a young woman bringing home a steaming cup of coffee for herself and a lucky guy.  There were also a pair of police cars and a flatbed tow truck on Union Street, of course.

It was a rather gloomy day for photography, despite the clean blanket of snow, so I did my best to find splotches of color. Yes, I braved the cold so you wouldn’t have to get bundled up in order to enjoy the neighborhood.  It was my pleasure, of course.  There are about 40 photos in the Slideshow above and Gallery below.
