No. 26 - The View from Boerum Hill - Bergen Street.

The contrast between the blue and the reddish-orange stopped me in my tracks as I was walking toward the F Train at Bergen Street this morning.

There was something about the way the shadows from the trees fell across the street, but left open this sea of sunshine across five houses, which are all painted almost the same color.

It felt as though the sun, the trees, and their branches and leaves all decided to spend a half-hour honoring these five houses; and I, thankfully, was walking by at just the right moment.
