Wednesday walk on Roosevelt Island and Steem Basic Income Give away

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.


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

My Walk this week is on Roosevelt Island NYC

Now I know some feel bad if their photos are not taken o the Wednesday when they do their post, I will highlight here that for Wedesnday Walk posts the photos are never taken on the day, but I try to post photos from a walk in the previous week, but I even sip sometimes on that, but these photos were actually taken last Wednesday not today of a morning walk I took around part of Roosevelt Island before heading to my office.
Here is one of the first shots I took on the walk that morning not far from the subway station I came out from, Looking across this little lark and over the eats River towards Manhattan, with the 59th Street Bridge in the background

And here is another shot I took on that walk, it may look like I am out on the East River to take this shot, but looks can be deceiving and that is not the case, this is on the Long Island City facing side of Roosevelt Island and showing another Bridge across the river, I am kind of fascinated by bridges and took a few shots of this one which when I find the time I will edit for a future post

the last shot was taken from one of the viewing platforms around the Island which gave the impression I was out on the water, this is not the one I was on but I do not seem to have a photo of that one, this is one looking out towards Manhattan I believe

Sorry the photos in this post are a bit out of sequence, but I will just blame that on the fact that as I am writing this my mind is wondering off all over the place :)

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 randomly draw names and send some Steem to add shares for some of those who joined last weeks challenge to @bashadow, @cherryng, @plantstoplanks, @quotes-haven, @owasco, all people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk . And a special bonus this week @elizacheng will send one SBI share to @jayna,

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.

The one time I went to NYC it was awesome... I think we walked like 80 blocks or something on one of the days I was there... over the Brooklyn Bridge all the way to Central Park and parts of the park. It was an amazing trip because it is an Amazing City!

Ohh yes indeed it truly is an amazing city with so much to see, I have often walked 80 Blocks or more around the city, if you ot just rushing from and tot he office you can sure get some exercise seeing the sights of the city

Thanks for the SBI share! Happy Wednesday walking everyone!

MY Pleasure :) and Have a great day

Good Morning @tattoodjay
Beautiful photos...!!!!!
My entry for this week

Good Morning and thanks so much for joining the walk :)

And I am glad you left the link I had forgotten to Resteem it :)

Nice shots! I can't get over how blue the sky is. Any post processing there or is it just a clear day in NYC?

Well all my not actifit posts are edited on the computer i shoot in RAW mode and do the editing myself, but i think they colors of the sky are chaos dot accurate of what I saw that day, but ten again I have a ver positive attitude and i think that comes across sometimes whenI edit photos

Very bright sunny day for a change! Where are all the people?
It’s so beautiful and strangely quiet!

I generally tend to try and avoid people/in shots for the mos part, but this was about 7Am in the morning so there were ot to many people out and about :)

Thanks @ tattoodjay for SBI share. Hope everyone enjoy wednesday walk!

Such a beautiful #WednesdayWalk! The view of the river and the beautiful bridges wash over me like sunshine. I am fascinated by bridges also and I love that they are all so different.

It is such a wonderful day that you take us with you and yes! I love the trail with no people on it!

I will be going over to the Shore House sometime this weekend as they have their fireworks later than they have them here. I love that they do it over one of the bridges. Happy #WednesdayWalk! I'm working on the post! :)

Upped and Steemed


WOW I love that shot and the sepia tones, I know I should know which bridge it is but y brain is failing me at the moment, is it the one they have the fireworks over that will make for awesome shots

Oh, Darn!!!

Thanks for being such an awesome Guide on #SteemUSA!

LOL you didn't need to do an antra comment for this I know I am Awesome LOL

I love how your images of the water capture the movement of the water. After reading your post I decided to use photos of a walk I took a week ago with the intent to post, for the challenge but didn't time to make a post. I finally had the time to create the post.

Thanks sometimes i try and capture the motion of the water like these shots but at other times if i hve the tripod with me i try for longer exposures to get a Moe silken feel to the water
I just saw your post and thanks so much for joining the walk :)

So happy to see that the Wednesday walk is still thriving!

Ohh yes its still doing well keeps me busy keeping up with all the posts :)

Glad to hear that! It's a great theme!

People seem to enjoy it which is great normally get out 50 posts each week for it ;)

Walking is good, and it opens up a lot of possibilities for a post!

Ohh yeah very true I ideally get out for a walk with my camera every day :)

That's great! To be honest, I have been in a funk since we returned, and have not walked at all. Time has flown by, as I have been dealing with terrible face pain which started the day we returned. I needed 2 root canals in upper teeth. I still have the pain, but treatment is not finished yet. This is getting old. :-(

I just had a root canal a couple of weeks ago Have a temporary filling and go for the crown soon, and plus i have a Hernia, up in my Diaphragm which lucky is just annoying and causes Acid reflux so I can deal with that but i am starting to have trouble convincing myself I am still young lOL

I like the shots of the water.

Thanks I do love walking by the water

Outstanding shots! Must be nice to come out of Subway to such a beautiful view. I have feeling that I had some of the view from the ferry I was on, but the weather was bad, that I couldn't take such a beautiful photos. Maybe next time 😊

Anyway, this is my entry. Photos I took last week Wednesday:

That’s were I am lucky working here I can take detours before work on some nicer days now and again and in dreary days head straight to work 😎
I have only done the ferry once but really must do it again sometime

Lovely detour for sure and I know NY is having nice summer so is perfect time to go on that ferry! I wish I could go with you, lol.

The problem is I only go into the city on works days do taking time out on one of the ferries takes too much time but I am working on plans to allow me more time in the next few months to do ferries museums and such

I can understand that, but as long you have a plan than you will make it work. I will be on the look out for your NY posts 😊

I started activating my plan now I hope in a couple of months or less it falls into place sp I can do more walks in the city :)

Well that's good and I wish that everything will work out for you 😊

Fingers crossed :)

I have the same problem with my brain wandering all over the place every day of the week today!

The shot from the platform is wicked cool - it totally looks like you're standing on the water to take the picture!

Here's my contribution this week -

Thanks, as always, for hosting this. !tip steem

Ohh my brain is always wandering all over I never know where it will head next lol

Thanks for joining Wednesday Walk again this week such a beautiful post

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

Sending tips with @tipU - how to guide :)

Thanks @traciyork for the tip 👍😎👍


Thanks kindly 😎👍😎


I like the open and wide spaces, as shown in your photos. They seem a little crowded and perfect for a walk.
My walk on Wednesday was just today: Again In My Crowded City

I am sure the places I shared get better later in the day in the early morning it is nice and quiet thats why I love doing my walks then :)

Yes, early morning is the best time.

Ohh yes I spent two hours on the beach this morning and was in the SUpermarket as soon as it opened at 7AM

When you wake up the morning the day is much longer and more productive.

Ohh yes I so agree I have always been a morning person Roday I had a sleep in, well a sleep in for me I got up and 5:45

This is very good. I sleep very late, that's why it's harder for me in the morning.

My Wife also sleeps later than me so me going out for my steps in the mornings means we have more fo the day together ;)
