a brooklyn sky



























this was one of my first glimpses of brooklyn as we drove towards metropolitan avenue last weekend. I love the old fashioned garland used to decorate the town for the holidays.

Like the colors and the bit of a silhouette....the garland looks a bit like it's smiling.

Excellent, Lily - that garland over the street took «Louis» back to his childhood. The town he grew up in used garlands like that down Broadway.
