The Danish word for garden shed.
I love color. I love flowers, plants and anything organically green. So, naturally something like a garden shed art installation would attract my attention! When I read that Tom Fruin's latest NYC art installment would be available for more than just a few days, I had to see it for myself-- but minus the crowds of people. Thankfully, this one is sticking around until June 2015, so there is no rush to see it this week or even this month.
There are two things I avoid doing unless it is a must:
1) being in crowded places and 2) including people in the photos I take of places. I like to feel alone when I am in my visions-zone. I like to feel as if I am the only one there taking in all of its glory. Honestly, I just wanted to take my time with this one.
So, what better way to do all of this at my own pace than to wake up at the crack of dawn, and beat the crowd! Yes, I was up by 5:30AM this morning and was out the door by 6AM. It took me about an hour to actually get from my location in Queens to the Brooklyn Bridge. I was there for over an hour and the only other people around me were joggers, park sanitation workers and one other photographer who wasn't even there to photograph the Kolonihavehus. It was heaven for me.
The other best part that worked in my favor was that since this installment came out in September, this isn't really brand new. It's not the latest blockbuster that everyone is rushing to the theaters to screen.
I can't remember the last time I willingly woke up so early in the morning, but I have to say that it was all worth it. Perhaps I'll have to do that again.
Check out the Kolonihavehus at 3 different hours this Sunday morning.
