June 29 - John Finley Walk

Took a stroll on the East River Esplanade.  This esplanade is by the FDR drive and from 81st street, it is over the FDR drive.  I have not walked beyond the 86th street mark.  Took this picture at the 81st street entrance.

Light house park on the northern tip of the Roosevelt Island. Since I normally don't walk up that far, I was awestruck by the view from the 81st street, above the FDR drive.

June 21 - Delaware Valley

We lived in Philadelphia for 5 years before moving to NY. Since we moved, I was in Phila for an over night couple of years ago.  This time I was there for 5 days and felt good to be back in the valley!  Took this picture from my cousin's apartment.

June 20 - Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds

Horse Shoe falls from Maid of the Mist boat ride.

Another shot at Horse Shoe falls.

Rainbow near the American Falls

American Falls from Cave of the Wind tour. This tour was lot more fun than the Maid of the mist boat ride. In this tour, we take the elevator to the bottom of the falls and climb up the stairs very close to the falls. The intensity and force of the water fall was such that at certain points it was very difficult climb the stairs. Nonetheless, very fun tour!

June 19 - Light show at Niagara Falls

Lights are focused on the American Falls from the Canadian side. Do you see the pink/red color water??? We were on the observation deck near the American falls and could not see the lights reflecting on the horse shoe falls. I am sure those falls very beautiful as well!

June 9 - Choper in a cloudy sky

It rained all afternoon and did not take many pictures.  This is the only picture I took.   Although it is not a great shot, I did not want to post an archived photo and hence this is the picture of the day!  Took this photo from my apartment.

I will be traveling for the next 10 days and may not be able to post a picture everyday.   However, I will take pictures everyday and will put it up on the blog, once I get back from Virginia.
