I've learned a lot this year.. I learned that things don't always turn our the way you planned, or the way you think they should. And I've learned that there are things that go wrong that don't always get fixed or get put back together the way they were before. I've learned that some broken things stay broken, and I've learned that you can get through bad times and keep looking for better ones, as long as you have people who love you.

And thankful for family and friends, I feel so loved today.❤️
.
My special day is observed as World Photography Day, which aims to inspire photographers across the planet to share a single photo with a simple purpose: to share their world with the world.
.
#WorldPhotoDay originates from the invention of the Daguerreotype, a photographic process developed by Frenchmen Louis Daguerre and Joseph Nicephore Niepce in 1837.
.
On January 9, 1839, the French Academy of Sciences announced the Daguerreotype process. On August 19, the French government purchased the patent and announced the invention as a gift “free to the world”.

A day is a day. It’s just a measurement of time. Whether it’s a good day or a bad day is up to you. It’s all a matter of perception.

Throwback to a lovely summer day in Capri, Italy

Snapped this a couple of years ago during a visit to Italy where my sister in-law and hubby took us around the country. This weekend it will be their turn to visit the US. So excited for new adventures! 🎈

A pleasant surprise to see this view of the Manhattan Municipal Building from Battery Park City, New York City
.
The 40-story Manhattan Municipal Building was built to accommodate increased governmental space demands after the 1898 consolidation of the city’s five boroughs.
.
On the top are three tiered drums on top of another, flanked by four smaller pinnacle turrets symbolizing the four boroughs joined to Manhattan.
.
At the very top is the 25-ft high Civic Fame statue, the second largest after the Statue of Liberty. Made of gilded copper, she carries various symbolic items including a crown with five turrets symbolizing the five boroughs.

Flashback to last Saturday’s #SummerStreets in Union Square, New York City
.
The structure at the back is Metronome, a public art installation funded by the developers of One Union Square South for $4.2 million in 1999.
.
The artwork consists of several sections, including a round circular void from which puffs of white steam are released throughout the day, and a clock made of large orange LED digits, called The Passage, which displays the time in 24-hour format.
.
The rose-colored structure near the bottom right is a 31-foot sculpture by Dale Chihuly. The Rose Crystal Tower is on display in Union Square through October this year.

Trying to shelter from the summer heat in Times Square, New York City
.
The structure the people are seating on is part of the public art by Mel Chin entitled Wake. It represents parts of a shipwreck modeled on the USS Nightingale.

It is part of a two-part mixed reality art installation. With the app Unmoored, the work presents a sunken shipwreck which rises to the surface of an imaginary flooded Times Square.
.
Mel Chin: Wake and Unmoored is on view in Times Square until Sep 5, 2018.
