travel theme: peaceful

Today, with everyone so plugged in with their phones, computers, TV’s and countless other devices, there comes a time when you physically and mentally need to unplug and have a little peace and quiet. I usually find my peace in those little moments when traveling ~ once you’ve gone through the hassle of security and are finally seated on the plane and next thing you know you’re flying high above the clouds with your headphones plugged in and a good book or fashion magazine in front of you.

Lately, I haven’t traveled as much so I’ve been finding peace in my own neighborhood (read: not in my apartment. As I’m typing this post the kids above me are running or wrestling, a car is blasting its music, and another car is honking at the traffic that can’t move because the light is red!). Anyhow, back to the post at hand. While NYC is known as the city that doesn’t sleep, there are pockets of places and times that do take a nap and provide some peace.

Take a look…tell me this isn’t peaceful! Photos taken in Ft. Tryon Park (located in Washington Heights/Inwood) and along the Hudson River and Westside Highway.

  2. Tiffany, these pictures are truly beautiful, peaceful and the serenity of it all!!! Great job!! you now have to add photography to list.

    • Thank you!!! I still have LOTS to learn about photography. Definitely not my forte, but I had fun taking these pics. Next time you visit we’ll take a walk to these places they truly are peaceful in the midst of the noise.

      • Tiff, I think it’s absolutely wonderful how you’ve taken to NYC – – it really does suit you. Great job on the blogs, you’re giving folks a lot of good info; much of it has come in handy for me too over the years. We think about you often down here in VA, but wish you well in the Big Apple. You do your thing girl, and keep those pictures coming. You do have a knack for photography and Tryon is a beautiful park… reminds me of a springtime walk to the CC VRE. Anyway, keep up the good work.
