Last week, I woke up and went outside to enjoy the beauty of Catherine's garden and snapped a few photographs before walking to the train enroute to my studio. A ride to Woodside on the LIRR, the number seven local train, several stops to Queensborough Plaza and a 20 minute walk found me working in the studio. Beautiful day....quickly into a few collages, working on a painting, designing some new cards.....and then...a loud, muffled thud sound....within, it seemed, seconds....I looked out the windows of my studio and saw a horribly dense, dark smoke rising from the 59th Street Bridge.
I thought the worst. Grabbed my camera to get a few images of this scary scene unfolding in front of me.
