Photohunt: View


The photohunt theme this week is view. Since I am always showing the view from North Carolina, both the part where I live as well as the mountains to the west and the beaches to the east, I thought I'd show you a different view.For my fiftieth birthday last fall, my family gathered in New York City where one of my sisters lives. The shot above is the view from my bedroom at the Washington Square Hotel. When I'm in a city, I enjoy looking out over all the buildings, especially when there is a lot of variety as I got from this view.When we stepped out into the hall, I enjoyed viewing the elevator markers. I'm not used to elevator numbers that look like the one above.
The view across the street from the hotel includes Washington Park which is lovely. I always enjoy city parks. They are so important in the middle of the buildings and concrete. Garibaldi below has a good view of the park.
If you have time, please visit the views which SabineM and I are showing in parallel shots on Snap2Days.

To find other photohunters you can browse on technorati for early birds here and on Saturday at the home of the hunt here

A lovely park right in the middle of busy New York city! It should be relaxing for the busy people.
Happy weekend!

AuTom said...

Thanks for taking us from your hotel room down to the park. Nice views indeed.

YTSL said...

Your New York-hotel themed entry got me thinking about how I've visited New York several times but never stayed in a hotel there (thanks to having New Yorker friends to stay with, etc.)! ;b

Forever Foster said...

I love the elevator marker. What a lovely way to brighten up what could be an everyday thing.
We agree that city parks are important. They help keep you grounded.

sho said...

Those elevator markers are special, Carver!

prinsesamusang said...

i like the second one it is very interesting like it has a story to tell.

Greyscale Territory said...

Interesting pics as I have never seen New York! But, I must admit, I love that Art Nouveau elevator marker! It looks like Audrey Beardsley's style! Quite unique for an elevator!

tanabata said...

Those are lovely views! I'd really like to visit NY someday.

Kathy C. said...

I am such a country loving person, but there is something about city parks that attracts me - very nice photos. :)

Aileni said...

The verdant face of the city. I am a sucker for Art Nouveau or Deco.

JC said...

Neat shots... very cool elevator door!

Sabine said...

Wonderful views! I'm hungering for such lush greenery, as summer has scorched everything and we haven't had enough rain yet to "paint" the world green...
Happy Weekend! :)

Hootin' Anni said...

Love the Autumn walkway!!!

Mine's up, it's a Cat's Eye View of fun.

Happy Hunting.

Sandy said...

This are great shots...love the Art Deco elevator.

Deborah said...

Thanks for reminding us that there is so much more to NYC than Wall Street! Great photos.

julie said...

These definitely are lovely views. I remember that NY trip because you blogged about it :)

mimi11460 said...

You probably had a great time in that beautiful place..

Gattina said...

At least that was an interesting view ! when we stayed in NY, the view was on a wall and the whole night we heard the firemen sirenes !

mirage2g said...

Like you I only have views of the east and thats what I have on my post! Thanks for sharing great views today, happy weekend!

diXymiss said...

Great views, Carver. Looks like a fun and eXciting setting for a birthday celebration. I love city parks too ~ especially those with history, statuary, stone and ironwork. They're such a welcome reprieve amongst the concrete and glass.

crazy working mom said...

I've never been to NYC before. Nice view. :) This is a perfect view isn't it? Here is my view.

Dragonstar said...

That first photo is stunning, with all the buildings and the trees as well. Love that design in the elevator.

Sanni @ Life... said...

Beautiful views, Carver. I like photo #4 best. :-)

girasoli said...

I have never been to New York City. I enjoyed seeing some of the views of this city from your eyes. The park looks so peaceful. Great choices for the theme this week!!

Floridogz said...

Like tourists huffing and puffing to reach the peak we forget the view on the way up.
-Friedrich Nietzsche

I am so glad that this is NOT true of you, My Friend.
Love, K.
