Weekend Reflections

One of many art installations set up around
the city for the summer, this is
Tom Fruin's Kolonihavehus, 2010.
Fruin used about 1,000 locally sourced scraps
of colorful Plexiglas in the construction.

Whoever lived in this glass house would
have a spectacular view of the Brooklyn Bridge!

  2. Alexa, you live in such a wonderful area for such unique beauty capture opportunities!

  3. Shadows and light with reflections too! LOVELY!!

  5. WOW! Amazing shadows on the ground. Have a lovely weekend.

  6. superbe effet avec le soleil j aime beaucoups ;o)
