Wednesday Walk Peter Detmold Park

in #wednesdaywalk3 years ago

Wednesday Walk - Peter Detmold Park

#wednesdaywalk challenge, is a weekly challenge I started before I do my post for this week here are the guidelines for the challenge;

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.

Try and get a few shots not just one

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

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 it this week please leave a link to your post in a comment on this post and I will try and visit them all.

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

For my Entry for the challenge for this week I will take you on a little walk through Peter Detmold Park in NY

This one of the entrances to the park at the bottom end of 49th Street

It's a lovely green pathway at this time of year with all the green on the trees and bushes , you can almost forget the busy FDR highway off to the right

At times this park can be very busy, at other times like when I visited it can be very quiet, the only people in the park the time I visited for these shots were these two snoozing on the park benches.

This is a shot from a walkway looking down on the park I loved all the long shadows criss crossing all over the park, as you can see its quite a good sized park

This is the elevated walkway where I took the previous shot of the park., down to the right is a little dog park which II completely forgot to get shots of, but will on another visit there, at at the end of the walkway behind me there are some nice views across the East river which I will share in another post.

What a lovely park @tattoodjay! I love the colors I see. Great idea for a challenge too.

If I took a walk right now it would be in my neighborhood, and I fear I would look kinda suspicious taking pictures of my neighbor's flowers and stuff lol.

And I have done that in our neighborhood but not often for the same reason LOL

But for this challenge the walkcan be any day, just f possible do the post on a Wednesday :)

Nice walk and visit to a park one normally would not know about. :-)

It is an out of the way Park, many do not know it is there I am sure

This park is really beautiful and so relaxing! And the photos are top! Congrats, my dear Jay!

Thnaks my friend :)

I am glad you shared it here so some others may see your beautiful post ;)

I resteemed yours ...I'd love to see everyone doing this challenge!

THanks Kindly i would love to see more walks from all around the world :)

A beautiful place, Jay. I wonder if I haven't seen people running along the first path in a movie or two ... maybe STC. Here is my contribution for Walk Wednesday:)

I would not be surprised at all if it has been used in a few movies or shows

Off to check out your post

What a beautiful stroll! I think my favorite shadowy walkway - the trees look like greeters, all lined up to make you feel welcome!

Here's mine for today - I decided to do a followup from last month. Thanks again for this challenge!

My post -


Thanks kindly
I love ved your post today such a cool idea to do them and now

Thank you in return, kind sir! I might do one every month - if I can remember, that is. LOL!

The shot from the walkway is my favorite but love them all!! Looks like you had a beautiful day for your walk!! Terrific photos Jay!!

That day was indeed a beautiful day

Thanks for your visit

You're very welcome @tattoodjay!!

Lovely! I especially like the blue railings of the bridge. They compliment the blue sky in the pic very well.

Nice shots! I don’t remember this park! Thanks for sharing! :)

Excellent shots! I love the monochrome in the park, and also that bridge! This is a very enjoyable photo challenge, thanks for running this @tattoodjay! My post for today is here:

beautiful photography friend You have my support. I hope to count on your support to keep growing. regards

nice idea for a challenge, I will definitely be taking part when I return from my vacation. Glad I could see the images here, they are not visible on discord,lol

Thanks for visiting and look forward to you joining

I cant fathom why they dont show on Discord its a mystery to me I have tried everything and there seems to be no pattern as to why

maybe discord doesnt like me lOL

hahaha, no it happens to me all the time so I stopped using!

I did experiment with one post a day on Busy and one on Steemit, and I noticed no difference, in fact for the week I did it only twice did an image show on discord and those were for post shared on Busy

Its weird I just cannot work it out

PS have a great vacation

me neither, but I don't have ever issues when I post links from steemit, but from busy I do, I agree its weird and I am going to pose that question their server now. I will let you know!

OK thanks I would love to work out what is happening LOL

They had some issue (way above my head) that they were discussing today with regard to that specific problem, however, they said it is fixed now. So let's wait and see.

OK cool will see what happens tonight i will try busy again tonight

So lovely, Jay. I am digging the shadows, especially in the shot of the brick walkway. I find myself relating to those snoozers. ;)

I was going to put my link here but you already visited my post. You are so efficient!!! Here it is anyway... Thanks for the tip and the resteem...greatly appreciated!

You should add the link to yours some others may see it and visit :)

I love the shot of the elevated walkway. It really draws me in.

Thanks I love that walkway as well it has a real cool feel to it

Fantastic walk! I love the switch between colored photos and a black and white/monochrome type of one. Beautiful shots. I love walking along with you. I also absolutely love this challenge. I know it is fairly early on Thursday, but I did get it done -

Thanks :)

I saw yours earlier today I am very easy on the rules

Infact I do not have rules I have guidelines :)

Thanks so much for your walk, Loved your detail shots they are so cool

VERY Coool idea, Jay.
You should drop this challenge in the World Of Photography!

Thanks thats a good point i hadn't thought of that I will do next week

This looks like a lovely little park! I wish there were something like this near me! Thanks for taking us along on this scenic little adventure! 😊

It really is a lovely and often very quite park I love walking by there after lunch quite often
