Wednesday walk challenge Hunters Point Park and Steem Basic Income Give away

I
Wednesday Walk is a challenge started by me, the idea is to get out for a short walk and get some shots of what you can see within a short distance of your home office or wherever you start. And this is my entry for this week, but first, let me explain the challenge.

This is my post for the Wednesday Walk challenge hosted by myself, let me first explain the guidelines

Try and get out once a week for a short walk, can be from your office, home or anywhere really and walk for a few blocks or a few minutes looking for things to get shots of.

Your walk does not have to be on a Wednesday I just ask if possible to share your walk photos on a Wednesday.

Try and get a few shots not just one

You can look for anything in general or decide on one subject you want to get shots off.

Try to limit yourself to a set distance or time from the starting location, say 5 Blocks, 5 Minutes walk or whatever and see what you can find in that short distance

Make a point of looking around and up and see what you can find to get shots of that otherwise you may miss

Do a post with the shots you get on a Wednesday and tag it with #wednesdaywalk, also if you happen to join, please leave a link to your post in a comment on this post and I will try and visit them all.

Following me and resteeming the post so more see it would be appreciated but isn't a rule just a suggestion, but you may have a better chance of receiving a Steem Basic Income Share if you do.

I am not strict on these rules and hence why they are called guidelines and not rules

I will try and visit, resteem and upvote all who take part in the Wednesday Walk, plus I will be sending @steembasicincomeshares to a selection of those who participate.

And if you are looking for another fun challenge, check out the Make Me Smilehosted by @elizacheng, coming soon we will be working to collaborate on occasionally on these challenges,
The third Wednesday of the month out two challenges will collaborate so if you combine the two into one post you have double the fun

Make me Smile Collaboration

As I mentioned above Wednesday Walk is collaborating with the Make Me Smile hosted by @elizacheng,
Starting now with this post, on the third Wednesday of the month out two challenges will collaborate so if you combine the two into one post you have double the fun

Here are the rules for her challenge

Your post can be writing, singing, video, poen,drawing, photography etc.... the most important part is your post Make me" smile, Remember, the ME is whoever read/view/listen to your post and this includes YOURSELF.
b. Your content must be ORIGINAL CONTENT
c. Please include at least 50 Words in your post

So the collaboration giveaway is as follows
As well as the SBI shares normally given away from the Wednesday Walk and Make me Smile Challenge, we will send one SBI Share each to one lucky winner who joins both challenges in one post

This weeks walk in Hunters Point Park South

When I was taking some shots looking across at Long Island City from Manhattan over the East River including the pano I shared in this post, I noticed a park and a couple of structures I had not seen before, so one morning I headed over there to check it out and that's the walk I will share in this post.

I took the Subway from Grand Central and went one stop on the 7 train and then walked to the Park and this is the first shot I took in the park, looking back along the riverside you can see the 59th Street bridge and the gantry at Gantry Plaza park which I have shared before in posts

And this is looking in the other direction into the park, its a real nice area, that I had not visited before I think it may be fairly new, and you can see one of the structures I saw across the water in this shot.

Steem Basic Income give away

I mentioned in the guidelines that from this week I will be sponsoring a few who join the #wednesdaywalk challenge with shares on Steem Basic Income

What is Steem Basic Income you may ask well here is how they explain it

Steem Basic Income is a social experiment to bring a basic income to as many Steemians as possible. Members join by sponsoring others into the program. Steem Basic Income is delivered through providing regular upvotes to member content. so I have decided to send some Steem Basic Income shares to 5 people selected through a random draw so on the weekend all people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk. to @bricbric, @adalger, @thebigsweed, @willowisp, @mantishands, all people who joined in last weeks Wednesday Walk .
And a special bonus this week @elizacheng will send one SBI share to @bashadow,

I would love to be able to give everyone who joins a Steem Basic Income share, but I don't make enough steem each week to do so, but I will try and share them around fairly between those that join the challenge

I hope a few of you may find this an interesting challenge and decide to join in.

You always make #WednesdayWalk an enjoyable tag-a-long treat for my day. I especially love when you wander around the city and give us your view, which is almost always an unusual view and very much preferred as I know how everyone else normally photographs it.

It looks a tad brisk, although I know it is warming up. A wonderful walk, as usual! Thanks for taking us along and for hosting the challenge!

Thanks kindly as always a comment from you is like a breath of fresh air or a lovely spring breeze so I am doubly blessed today with a gorgeous spring day and your wonderful comment
This walk was last week actually and it was a tad brisk I almost didn’t go over there as it was below freezing after a day in the 70s the day before but I have been this park across the river from work and I was intrigued to go and check it out as I had not been to it before
It’s a cool park and pretty new and I have more from there to edit and share in fact the interesting structure that I saw from across the river I have yet to share 😎

Thanks kindly my friends thanks also for the !tip

Thanks so much for joining the walkI just saw your post :)

There is something about those pictures that just looks cold. Not cold in a bad way, but cold in a way that you can feel it in your bones just looking at them. Maybe is just the lack of people in them. I am sure it was probably warmer than it has been when you took them.

·

It was actually quite cold that morning, I was layered up, the day before it had been a nice day but overnight the temps dropped big time I think there was a 35 Degree temperature change from the high of 70 the day before to the high of 45 the day I took these and it was just over freezing point when I did that walk

·
·

Ah yes, I think we had that a couple of days before you...

·
·
·

Spring is struggling to take a full grip here but i keep hoping it will soon :)

Cold blue sky with lots of jet trails, the metal on the structures appear to reflect early morning light, giving a gentle golden sheen to the last two captures.

Hope you enjoyed the walk-about, I enjoyed seeing the old bridge in the background down the river, 3rd image.

·

It’s funny I was talking to someone recently where he said he was surprised at the lack of jet trails in my shots and then a couple of days I took these shots and thee were many of them

That Bridge is the 59th Street bridge from Manhattan to queens

·
·

Air is busy with planes, even up in the mountains you see trails if conditions are right. Old bridges always add that little something extra to a photo around modern cities.

·
·
·

Ye indeed and NYC has two very busy airports so trails are very common place in the sky here but the weird thing is and maybe it was me unknowingly only getting shots wherein there were not many trails in the sky but many of my NYC shots in the past have few if any signs of trails in the sky

I would like to thank @elizacheng for the SBI, totally unexpected.but very much appreciated. I am not sure If I will get a walk post out today, but I might.

·

If you cant get a post today there is aways next week :)

·
·

I feel tired already, I just walked from Malaysia to Phoenix, to Argentina, my legs are tired. LoL. I love how much of the world post in the tag.

·
·
·

Yes thats what I love about Wednesdays nowI get to see s ugh of the world through all the walks:)

Everything looking bluish color of Hunters Point Park photography and good system to benches here people sit or relax. I have liked your different angler structure. Here is my entry : https://steemit.com/wednesdaywalk/@kamrunnahar/wednesday-walk-to-go-my-daughters-school

·

It was quite brisk the morning I went to that park and maybe that gives the bluish feel
I saw your post thanks so much for joining

Amazing structures JJ. I really like the third one. Always great to follow along on your #wednesdaywalk.

Thanks and there is another feature in this park which Is what I saw also from across the river which is cool as well but that will be for another post :)

·
·

I’ll look forward to seeing the post, JJ.

·
·
·

It may be a while over the last couple of weeks I have raken so many photos I am way behind in editing 😎

Very nice post, great photography !

·

Thanks kindly

Have a great day

The crisp morning light really brought out the color in your shots, Jay. They were such a pleasure to look at. Makes me wish I was more of a morning person:)

·

Thanks kindly it was a bit brisk that morning and as for being a morning person I have been that way as long as I remember getting up around 4:00 to 4:30 is just the norm for me a sleep in for me is like 5:30 lol 😂

·
·

You are fortunate:)

·
·
·

Mostly I do think I am fortunate 😎

Like I have said many times, you make New York look like such a beautiful place! Benches to sit and enjoy the view is also a very cool addition. I remember that panoramic shot you did... cool to see the area up close that inspired it!

Your shots are so nice... sometimes I have a hard time discerning if they are real or a digital image. I know for a fact they are your photographs, but man that detail! Thanks again for taking us along with you on your journey brother...

Here is my quick, but planned out #wednesdaywalk submission.

Such a kind comment and truly appreciated your so kind

NYC is beautiful in many ways with all these parks in the early morning when not to many are out and about especially so

Thanks again

All your shots are awesome, as always, but something about that third capture of the structure really caught my eye! Excellent stuff, my walk inspiring friend! 😊
