Photography from the Google Plus Photowalk - Queens Edition.

Socrates Sculpture Park. Long Island City, NYC.

I had the pleasure of going on my 4th (or 5th?) New York City Google Plus Photowalk yesterday. It was quite cold but everyone bundled up with cameras in tow and met in Queens where we walked through Astoria to Long Island City and ended up in Socrates Sculpture Park. As on the past few photowalks, I ended up not taking very many photos. I find that I usually get so wrapped up in talking and observing other people taking photos which is part of the fun, of course!

The small amount of photos that I did end up taking were taken in Socrates Sculpture Park which was an intriguing stretch of land at the western most point of Long Island City. The land was an abandoned riverside landfill and illegal dumpsite until 1986 when a group of artists and members of the local community transformed it into an open studio and exhibition space for artists and a neighborhood park for local residents. Currently, it is an internationally renowned outdoor museum and artist residency program that also serves as a New York City park.

To view these photos as an album (larger and less compressed), feel free to take a look at the set here at my profile on Google Plus:
