Wednesday walk challenge Bryant Park and Steem Basic Income Give away

I

Wednesday Walk is a challenge started by me, the idea is to get out for a short walk and get some shots of what you can see within a short distance of your home office or wherever you start. And this is my entry for this week, but first, let me explain the challenge.

This is my post for the Wednesday Walk challenge hosted by myself, let me first explain the guidelines

Try and get out once a week for a short walk, can be from your office, home or anywhere really and walk for a few blocks or a few minutes looking for things to get shots of.

Your walk does not have to be on a Wednesday I just ask if possible to share your walk photos on a Wednesday.

Try and get a few shots not just one

You can look for anything in general or decide on one subject you want to get shots off.

Try to limit yourself to a set distance or time from the starting location, say 5 Blocks, 5 Minutes walk or whatever and see what you can find in that short distance

Make a point of looking around and up and see what you can find to get shots of that otherwise you may miss

Do a post with the shots you get on a Wednesday and tag it with #wednesdaywalk, also if you happen to join, please leave a link to your post in a comment on this post and I will try and visit them all.

Following me and resteeming the post so more see it would be appreciated but isn't a rule just a suggestion, but you may have a better chance of receiving a Steem Basic Income Share if you do.

I am not strict on these rules and hence why they are called guidelines and not rules

I will try and visit, resteem and upvote all who take part in the Wednesday Walk, plus I will be sending @steembasicincomeshares to a selection of those who participate.

And if you are looking for another fun challenge, check out the Make Me Smilehosted by @elizacheng, coming soon we will be working to collaborate on occasionally on these challenges,

The third Wednesday of the month out two challenges will collaborate so if you combine the two into one post you have double the fun

This weeks walk in Bryant Park

For this weeks walk I took a cool walk around Bryant Park, which is between 5th and 6th Ave and 42 and 43rd streets in Manhattan

I walked from Grand Central up to Bryant Park and this is the entrance I took into the Park, as you can see it was pretty deserted, the chilly temperatures no doubt stopping many from considering a walk in the park, before Christmas I shared a shot in this same spot and the area was full with little huts that they put up each year where they sell all kinds of cool things, as you can see they had taken them down.

I did see a bunch of people in this shot, the workers dismantling the Winter village and ice skating rink, soon it will be back to the warm large green that it is for all but the winter months

I did mention it was a bit chilly, and I got this shot to give an idea of how chilly it was, as you can see a lot of the fountain is covered in Icicles, I was actually surprised there wasn't more of them I have seen this whole fountain incased in ice, most of the fountains in the city are shut off during the cold spells of winter so the pipes do not freeze or burst, they take another approach here they heat the water going out of the fountain and keep it running, which make sit more impressive that even with heated water it freezes like this.

And back on the same pathway where I started with in this post.

By this stage I was feeling the cold, I believe with the wind the real feel was about 10 Degrees that morning and I probably shouldn't have been out walking, but I felt the need for a walk, but by this stage it was a few quick snaps and a brisk walk back to the office

Steem Basic Income give away

I mentioned in the guidelines that from this week I will be sponsoring a few who join the #wednesdaywalk challenge with shares on Steem Basic Income

What is Steem Basic Income you may ask well here is how they explain it

Steem Basic Income is a social experiment to bring a basic income to as many Steemians as possible. Members join by sponsoring others into the program. Steem Basic Income is delivered through providing regular upvotes to member content. so I have decided to send some Steem Basic Income shares to 5 people selected through a random draw so on the weekend, all people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk. @leylar, @kamrunnahar, @fitinfun, @tali72, @tijntje,
all people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk .
And a special bonus this week @elizacheng will send one SBI share to @bigtom13,

I would love to be able to give everyone who joins a Steem Basic Income share, but I don't make enough steem each week to do so, but I will try and share them around fairly between those that join the challenge

I hope a few of you may find this an interesting challenge and decide to join in.

It's funny, because when I was a kid I always wondered why the water was running and freezing. Now I know why, of course but I wonder how many kids or even people wonder about that same thing. Wonderful shots of your Wednesday walk and it's always a good time when you peruse us around New York City! Thank you for the awesome shots at Bryant Park and it sure is looking like spring there!

I do love walking and hence why I created htis challenge and giveaway to help others to get motivated for walking
I thanked @lonejaveed for the nomination and let me thank you for hosting the up-gage challenge

I must say I like that fountain covered with icicles. Here the fountains are shut in winter for the same reason you mentioned. But the image with running water and icicles looks great.

·

Ye most here are closed but they keep this one open and its cool to see I make a point to go se eit every year although this year i missed it at peak of icicles

You've managed to capture wonderful hues and reflections here @tattoodjay, starting to look a tad warmer?

·

Today it is warmer up to 45 right now, which feels pleasant, the day I too these shots the temp was about 16 Degress I think

I hope you didn't get sick after such a walk. I think, at this temperature, 10 minutes for a walk can be a lot :) I'm amazed at the view of the fountain !!!! it's great!!!! To be honest, without those shops the park looks much more beautiful :)

I was fine after the walk, probably was silly to do it and the walk around the park was 10 minutes but then 10 Minute sot walk there and probably 15 or so back to the office so I was lucky to not get ick, I love the ountainwhenit is frozen over like this, and I missed the leak some years I have seen it totally covered with ice

You always make me miss NYC, but maybe not the weather! I've been there in the bitter cold and the tall buildings make it so much worse with wind.

Thank you so much for the sbi from last week. I love doing this challenge. always so many interesting things to see in the different posts.

Here's this week while I attempt to get water in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia :)

·

Ohh yes NYC in Winter is the worse season the tall buildings make most streets a wind tunnel, and to me it feels that no matter which direction your walking the wind always seems ot be directlyly into your face lOL
Cool Post this week, gettign water there seems quite an adventure and a workout all in one

What a nice early spring shots! I like cold shadows and a warm light, and reflections in the windows are so beautiful!

We have such a nice sunny day today, what a pity that I have to stay in the office

·

Indeed a pouty you have to stay inthe office today, its the same for me the sun is coming out and I will be stuck in the office all day, when spring starts and its starting to warm up after a cold winter, a sunny day and being stuck inthe office is worse than any other time of the year for me

·
·

And then, you'd go out and suddenly notice that green explosion - all trees are with leaves, and grass and spring flowers ...

Thanks Keith I loved the signs of spring in your post 😎

Hi @tattoodjay, I managed to get one out this week, so here is my Wednesday Walk - North Beach Durban, hope you enjoy it.

·

Your post made my day to see such a nice beach and beautiful weather ;)

Yikes! Yeah, that heated fountain water is no match for the record low (or so I've heard) temps in the Northeast this month! It does make for an awesome picture, though. Great shots, as always, @tattoodjay!

·

Thanks so much and yes but they do it on purpose I think to draw people to the area to see it, and I have seen it covered in so much more ice

Great photos JJ. Fountain with frozen water is my favourite. Colors in last picture really catch the eye.

·

Thanks kindly even after seeing it frozen for years now it still fascinates me

Wonderful #wednesdaywalk through Bryant Park my friend. When I was out- processing in the service, we rolled into Fort Dix New Jersey on July 4th weekend on 1994...Some of my "buddies" wanted to have a welcome home party and travel to New York by taxi. Thank goodness our First Seargent sent us back to the States from Germany with no pay lol...

These are some beautiful photographs of the park; I like them all, but think the second is my favorite... that structure just screams "come and check me out"... is that a lift in the left of the screen? Guessing that's what they used to take items down as you said...

In all the photos you share, the one thing I notice that surprises me is the lack of trash on the ground. I am again reminded of my time in Germany... we would be leaving the clubs at "oh my goddness'thirty" and see a continuous row of workers in orange suits... a "police call line" if you will... we asked them what they were doing, and from what I could understand, their only purpose was to sweep the streets... there werent any cigarettte butts, cans, trash... anything. It was quite impressive considering the huge amount of American soldiers that frequented the clubs there. Anyway... another great Wednesday Walk my friend; I have attached the link to mine below, as you requested in your post...

Thanks again for joining the walk
And yes that is a lift in the background taking Ng down the winter village
Ohh yes I had many nights like than in my army and post army younger years leaving pubs at 0 dark thirty

For the most part NYC is kept so clean no big crews like you saw in Germany but each building cleans its own space

Awesome shots of the city! I grew up across the river in New Jersey, but now that I live elsewhere, I haven't been to NYC in years. There is no other place like it. You've got me inspired to get together some photos for next week's #wednesdaywalk!

·

NYC sure has so much to see anytime of year, and i look forward to you joining Wednesday Walk next week :)

That is funny, I was going to comment about why they leave the fountain running during the Winter! Thanks for the reasoning and the great pictures!

·

I think there are a couple of fountains in the city that they leave running over winter one is ore of a man made waterfall that doesnt really freeze that much but has stem runningup fromthe warm water, and this one which I try and catch each winter but i missed it at peak this year, here is a shot from a previous year to show what I mean
