Color in the City Brookly- Part deux


Still a Decorative Painter at heart, I can't help but smile at the amazing creations that can come from these three basic elements- paint, brush, imagination. And soon as we hit the street, I'm smiling from ear to ear. Of course, there are shops, restaurants, etc. But it's the art on the buildings that catches my eye...

The streets are still very much singular in their brick and stone structure, but that hasn't held anyone back from making their own unique statement.

Even simple touches like the hand painted transom windows in this coffee shop add a comfy touch

Next is the Flea Market in the Fort Greene area...

where the vendors are as colorful as their wares...

Old and new, what I like about this Flea Market is that the creativity and presentation reigned supreme. From the organic foods to original art and unusual collections, the overall feeling is pride of ownership and creative expression. That's so nice!

And as I stroll away I'm thinking about the predominant colors I've seen today.  Then notice this rare empty space...

and my next color for Brooklyn (see yesterday's post for the first!):

The adventure continues tomorrow as I explore the Williamsburg area...
