Daily Press and Little Skips East
Good News! Submitted some of my photography to The Daily Press. Hopefully the owner will choose one if not all to display on the coffee shops walls. I’m excited!!
Happiness! I’m so glad that I moved to Brooklyn back in November 2012. I did not know but God knew that my photography would develop and begin to take off. I believe that it was God’s Will for The Daily Press to open right across the street from my home. The Owner is so friendly and open to the community. A really nice guy.
Now many of you know I like to do my Soulful Struts on my days off. Provides both exercise and opportunities to take photos. I enjoy walking around my Brooklyn neighborhood. You never know what you will find and who you will meet. From my Advantage point I live in Brownsville and can easily walk to Bed-Stuy or Bushwick within minutes. Yesterday during my Bushwick travels I came upon LIttle Skips East at 1643 Broadway. Purchased a giant chocolate chip cookie, introduced myself and made some small talk with one of the workers. I noticed that their theme is Coffee Art Love. The Key word for me being Art. Hmmm…. Another potential place to showcase my photos. Heck it won’t hurt to ask. You can be sure I will be paying more visits to Little Skips East!
Good News! Hot off the Press! The Daily Press!
Hot off the Press!! The Daily Press a Coffee Shop across the street from me has offered to showcase some of my photographs!! Will let you know further developments!! Booyah!
Once my photographs are on their walls I will take pictures and put them on my Photography Blog ~~ Roaming Urban Gypsy ~~ https://roamingurbangypsy.com/

Cypress Hills Cemetery is where my parents, grandparents and other family members are buried.
My sympathies, prayers and heart go out to all Asian-Americans affected by this terrible desecration.
Teens vandalize Brooklyn cemetery, write anti-Asian slurs on headstones, NYPD says
Three teenagers spray-painted anti-Asian slurs and other derogatory words on dozens of headstones in the Cypress Hills Cemetery in Brooklyn early Tuesday morning, police said Wednesday.
The three males, believed to be 16 to 19 years old, knocked over and spray-painted more than 40 headstones after entering the cemetery at 833 Jamaica Ave. just after midnight, according to police.
They also damaged 15 vaults inside the Memorial Abbey mausoleum, police said.
It was not immediately clear what derogatory words were written on the headstones, but police said there were some anti-Asian slurs.
The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the incident.
Video surveillance of the teens was released on Wednesday.
This weird and strange machine was on our table. Apparently the device serves no purpose as I paid the bill without using the puzzling dinner companion.
There was a warning on the back of our electronic dinner guest that the device will not operate outside the restaurant.
Who would want this thing? I tried picking it up and nearly strained every muscle in my poor arm!
