I# Wednesday Walk make me smile post from Central park to the Rockefeller Center

This post if for Wednesday walk challenge And Make me Smile Collaboration challenge, initially our collaboration was once a month but due to the popularity of it we have decided to make the collab a weekly thing :)

Note I want to thank @bluemist for sponsoring this challenge starting from this week, due to their support I will be from next week sending out Steem to a selection of people who partake in the Wednesday walk as I will explain in the guidelines below all of the liquid rewards for this post will be shared with a selection of participants.

Wednesday Walk is a challenge started by me, the idea is to get out for a short walk and get some shots of what you can see within a short distance of your home office or wherever you start. And this is my entry for this week, but first, let me explain the challenge.

This is my post for the Wednesday Walk challenge hosted by myself, let me first explain the guidelines

Try and get out once a week for a short walk, can be from your office, home or anywhere really and walk for a few blocks or a few minutes looking for things to get shots of.

Your walk does not have to be on a Wednesday I just ask if possible to share your walk photos on a Wednesday.

Try and get a few shots not just one

Add a bit of a write up about where you walked

You can look for anything in general or decide on one subject you want to get shots off.

Make a point of looking around and up and see what you can find to get shots of that otherwise you may miss

Do a post with the shots you get on a Wednesday and tag it with #wednesdaywalk, also if you happen to join, please leave a link to your post in a comment on this post and I will try and visit them all, especially if its not one of the first 5 tags or I may miss seeing it .

Following me and resteeming the post so more see it would be appreciated but isn't a rule just a suggestion.

I am not strict on these rules and hence why they are called guidelines and not rules

I will try and visit, and upvote all who take part in the Wednesday Walk, plus I will be sending some Steem to a selection of those who participate, please note this is a change from sending out SBI shares, as I did in the past.


A good App that works well in conjunction with the Wednesday Walk or any day walk is @actifit, which rewards you with Actifit Tokens and Steemit Upvotes, if you use the app to track your steps and do a post of your actifit total each day.

If you do a lot of activity I do recommend you check it out

Make me Smile Collaboration

As I mentioned above Wednesday Walk is collaborating with the [Make Me Smile] hosted by @elizacheng,

Here are the rules for her challenge

Your post can be writing, singing, video, poem,drawing, photography etc.... the most important part is your post Make me" smile, Remember, the ME is whoever read/view/listen to your post and this includes YOURSELF. b. Your content must be ORIGINAL CONTENT c. Please include at least 50 Words in your post

So the collaboration giveaway is as follows As well as the SBI shares normally given away from the Wednesday Walk and Make me Smile Challenge, we will send one SBI Share each to one lucky winner who joins both challenges in one post

This weeks walk

For this weeks walk I am sharing shots I did of a walk this week from Central Park tot he Rockefeller Centre, Starting with a shot of the Gapstow Bridge, which was built in 1895 and at 76 Feet long is not a big bridge but I do love its style.

The purpose of this walk was to try and replicate a few shots that @bozz did on a previous visit to NYC, and my walk took me down 5th Avenue to get a shot of the Cathedral, which I share din a previous post, but while there i got this shot of the flags

And even though my main aim of the walk was Central Park and the Rockefeller Centre, I did walk back to my office =, taking me down Park Ave, and I could not resist this shot with the Met Life building including a cool reflection

Weekly giveaway of shares

I am sending Steem to a few people selected through a random draw so on the weekend all people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk. this week I am sending 5 Steem to @jerrytsuseer, @janaveda, @iamraincrystal, @mdaminulislam, @rem-steem, @kaerpediem, @sinlg, @honsikhago,

@elizacheng will send one SBI share to @ireenchew

As @elizacheng and I collaborated with our Wednesday Walk and Make me Smile Challenges

And one person is randomly drawn who joins both challenges to receive one Steem from me and this week it is @TBA

I would love to be able to give everyone who joins a Steem Basic Income share, but I don't make enough steem each week to do so, but I will try and share them around fairly between those that join the challenge

I hope a few of you may find this an interesting challenge and decide to join in.

unless stated otherwise all photos used in my posts are taken and owned by myself, if you wish to use any of my images please contact me.

    That is pretty awesome. That reflection shot at the end is great! I have a couple shots of the statue as well. I think when I was there they had a restaurant setup where the skating rink is. I just remember there were a lot of tables and umbrellas.

    Amazing photographs! One day I come and visit NY myself - seem to be an incredible town :)

  • @kaminchan

    Love to try ice skating! Such a spacious place populated by skyscrapers!

  • @joanstewart

    Another amazing city walk capturing life and times in motion or reflection.

    The reflection photo is a winner in perfect balance spread between actual building and reflected side on massive window panes.

  • @jerrytsuseer

    Great photos and encouraging post JJ, I am grateful for the grant from last week (if I understood correctly) I was going to ask what a "SBI" was, but that question was answered in the last few sentences.   I will try to get out and get something for you and @elizacheng today, it has just been so rainy and gray for so long down here in Georgia, it makes it hard for me to get motivated to go out. I really NEED to get back to the pool, so I can begin again to try and get a semblance of healthy fitness back. Love the images @tattoodjay, but then I always do!

  • @papilloncharity

    Wow! Carry on like this and you will be a whale soon JJ hahaha. Of course the photos are the usual classics and once again magazine quality. Blessings and proud of you my friend.

    Hi the first photo I love the reflection and nature, but the last one is my favorite with so much reflection. I guess that reflected in a shop window is great, the color the composition, it was good to change the way Happy day

  • @starjewel

    Beautiful shots. Love the flags. And the skating ring at Rockefeller center is one of my favorite spots to hang out, sipping some hot tea/chocolate/coffee and watching skaters. And taking pics πŸ“·

  • @silversaver888

    NYC is so beautiful! There are countless movies with scenes taken on the NYC "Rock" (the SF "Rock" is the island of Alcatraz). One of these days, I will visit NYC during the Winter and skate that ice! Have a wonderful Wednesday, @tattoodjay! Take care, my friend πŸ₯°πŸŒΊπŸ€™

    Love your photos of NYC - who would have figured buildings could be so interesting but that is a stunning photo of the Metlife building and reflection! Love the Gapstow Bridge looks like a bit of country in the city! It looks like fall there not winter (except for the ice skating) for there isn't any snow - is that normal for this time of year? thanks for sharing Here is my #WednesdayWalk post
