Brooklyn Winter Flea Market

My wife and I had last Saturday off from work and whilst looking for something to do indoors on a blistering cold winter morning with windchills driving down the temperature into the single digits we found ourselves at what was the old Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower in Brooklyn.
What a treat it was considering the unique architecture of this iconic building. Completed in the late 1920’s in a modernised Byzantine-Romanesque style with 63 foot vaulted ceilings this place could have been a church!
Considering I was heading to a flea market I did not carry any of my Nikon’s and as the old saying goes the best camera is the one you have with you, I used my Google Pixel for this shot.

Celebrate our Diversity,
For we are very different;
Respect our uniqueness,
For each of us are distinct;

For in the end we are but one,
We all represent Humanity;
In a little speck of the universe,
On a planet we call earth.

This photograph was captured while visiting South Carolina last year and credit to the above caption should go to Joe Giordano as it was he who drew the parallel between this photo and Mister Ed, the talking horse, featured in the popular American sitcom going back to the 1960’s
