Wednesday Walk make me smile post- Riverside Park South

This post if for Wednesday walk challenge And Make me Smile Collaboration challenge, initially our collaboration was once a month but due to the popularity of it we have decided to make the collab a weekly thing :)

Note I want to thank @bluemist for sponsoring this challenge starting from this week, due to their support I will be from next week sending out Steem to a selection of people who partake in the Wednesday walk as I will explain in the guidelines below all of the liquid rewards for this post will be shared with a selection of participants.

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.

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.

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

I will try and visit, and upvote all who take part in the Wednesday Walk, plus I will be sending some Steem to a selection of those who participate, please note this is a change from sending out SBI shares, as I did in the past.


A good App that works well in conjunction with the Wednesday Walk or any day walk is @actifit, which rewards you with Actifit Tokens and Steemit Upvotes, if you use the app to track your steps and do a post of your actifit total each day.

If you do a lot of activity I do recommend you check it out

Make me Smile Collaboration

As I mentioned above Wednesday Walk is collaborating with the [Make Me Smile] hosted by @elizacheng,

Here are the rules for her challenge

Your post can be writing, singing, video, poem,drawing, photography etc.... the most important part is your post Make me" smile, Remember, the ME is whoever read/view/listen to your post and this includes YOURSELF.
b. Your content must be ORIGINAL CONTENT
c. Please include at least 50 Words in your post

So the collaboration giveaway is as follows
As well as the SBI shares normally given away from the Wednesday Walk and Make me Smile Challenge, we will send one SBI Share each to one lucky winner who joins both challenges in one post

This weeks post is at the Riverside East park in Manhattan

Even though I did get out for some walks last week with the family and grandkids I did not take any photos so for my post this week I am sharing shots from a while back of a walk I did at the John V Lindsay Riverside East Park in Manhattan.

I had not been to this park before this visit and its a nice long park where one can get a good walk in with a couple of piers including this one

I decided to go and check out this park when I was looking up art in the city and saw this one mentioned and went to check it out, it is by Sarah E. Brook, and is called Viewfinding

This next shot shows one of the spots to sit and take a break with some shade over the benches, not that it was needed the time I was there for two reasons, it was an early morning for one and secondly, it was cloudy and moody skies at the time

As well as the pier and normal walkways they have little bridge walkways like this one, I do like the little Cacti garden on the rocks in this spot but I do wonder how they cope in the cold over winter

I am not sur eof the significance of this train inthe park, but I thought it was cool, I do like seeing rust at times but I think it would be nioce if it was fixed up a little

Weekly giveaway of shares

I have sent Steem to a few people selected through a random draw so on the weekend all people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk. this week I am sending 5 Steem to @paradigm42, @pablo1601, @barbara-orenya, @sketch.and.jam, @rem-steem, @borjan, @sinlg,

@elizacheng will send one SBI share to @enginewitty,

Note: my projected total liquid steem income from last Wednesday's post will be around 35 steem and I am sending out 35 Steem to people, as I also made a mistake and sent out some SBI shares this week forgetting I had switched to sending Steem :)

As @elizacheng and I collaborated with our Wednesday Walk and Make me Smile Challenges

And one person is randomly drawn who joins both challenges to receive an SBI share from me and this week it is @TBA

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.

unless stated otherwise all photos used in my posts are taken and owned by myself, if you wish to use any of my images please contact me.

Thanks I do boost the vibrancy a little often in my photos I m just a colorful guy I guess LOL

Have a great day

Indeed... you are a colorful guy, LOL. I uploaded a Wednesday Walk article and providing a link here as you have indicated here. Hehehe, I didn't realize that I had to post the link here too.. which is good, so you won't miss me! Here it is:

I try to not miss anyone who joins the walk and have Ginabot notify when people do but sharing a link here makes it easy for others to check out the posts 👍🙂👍

I am happy you had a wonderful holiday with your family! There is nothing more precious than time with grand kids. But I am guessing you will see them more often form now on. Anyway, this park seems another lovely place I should visit next time I am in NY. Beautiful shots as always 😊

Ohh yeah after almost a week with them getting back into work mode was such a struggle

I can imagine! Thank God it will be over soon 😉

Ohh yeah this month will make me even more glad of retiring ;)

By the way, how long exactly before you retire?

Two months and 23 days last day if February 🙂

Just in time before spring, that's going to be awesome 😊

Ohh yeah I am so looking forward to it

Thanks for share your Wednesday memories

Thanks and thanks for your post such great photos it felt like we were there as well and what a beautiful place to be

This is such a lovely contest. Very soothing and healing to do. Here's mine for this week

Thanks and I visited your walk post a lovely one

So many wonderful sights in your home, New York City! I always love seeing what you will come up with!
Here is my entry for this weeks #Wednesdaywalk

As much as I love the city at this time of year, I do also love wide open spaces like you shared in your post

Ooo, love the sepia tones of that first shot! Nice park, and you got some great photos @tattoodjay. I agree about that cacti garden - such a strange place to find them, and with the cold winter winds blowing off the ocean, I wonder how they survive!

Speaking of cold and winter, here's my contribution for this week -

Oh, and how wicked cool that @bluemist is jumping in with a sponsorship! He's done some awesome things for the #Steem community in the past, and it's nice to see he's continuing. It gives me hope that the Bear market isn't driving everyone away. 😊

As always, thanks for hosting this - !tip steem

Thanks and I saw your post so beautiful if also so cold LOL

Yes its great he is supporting Wednesday walks and other contests is a sign of hope for the future i think

🎁 Hi @tattoodjay! You have received 0.1 STEEM tip from @traciyork!

1st image is so so beautiful.
I simply love the colours, my eyes soak pleasure from this colour grade.

I also have a question about the 2nd image -- 'Viewfinding' by Sarah E. Brook. what it is? what's it purpose, why it has different colours?.. a little explanation to feed my curiocity would be much appreciated.

and my lazy me also wants to find out about this 'Make me smile' contest. may you head me with a linky link, please? what its all about? thank you. hope it wasnt too much questions from me!


I am truly thankful for his support I love being able to give out more to those who join the walk each week :)
About viewfinder I had the same questions and I didn't find an answer, and to be honest I was not that impressed by it

and for make me smile her is her latest post which explains it

Cheers and !BEER
