Marian Chapel: Details

Yesterday, on the way to somewhere else, we stopped at a Marian Chapel in West Haverstraw, NY.  On spacious grounds were a school, some shrines, a soccer field, a bookstore, a huge statue of Mary, and a small modern chapel with a few statues and small Stations of the Cross making a circuit around the room.  These are a few images from the chapel.

A quick view of Iona Marsh

Iona Marsh
Iona Marsh is a protected wetlands that has long been a favorite haunt of painters and photographers alike.  It's right on the Hudson River, nestled below Bear Mountain.  Even in winter, it has great weeds.

An Afternoon in Central Park, New York City

Semi-circular trellis overlooking the central lawn, Conservatory Garden, NYC
I spent an afternoon at one of my favorite places, the Conservatory Garden in Manhattan's Central Park.  The garden is at 105th and 5th Avenue and is beautifully designed and maintained.  I have taken many many photos there, and it remains photogenic, even in February!  All of these were taken with my iPhone.
