Today I dragged myself out of my apartment. Should have done it earlier cause it was a beautiful day, and went to the Brooklyn Flea Market in Fort Greene. The flea market was okay. Good people watching. It was a bit too hot and I tried to take pictures but my old camera is sort of messed up. Oh, and I ruined an entire roll of film cause somehow the film detached from the canister while I was rewinding it. Dude, I need money to buy a DSLR!
After the flea market, I used a subway map and somehow managed to figure out how to walk to Brooklyn Heights. Was the perfect day for a long walk and interesting to walk through the various neighborhoods- from brownstones and hipster haven at the market to hip, upscale black, stores, to completely black neighborhoods filled with discount stores, to the wealth of Brooklyn Heights and Montague street. Felt like I got decent exercise and was a good alternative to attempting to run in Central Park while hung over. I sat at the Promenade and walked across the Brooklyn Bridge and got some nice, graphic shots with my old school Pentax. Then made a healthy dinner and vegged out to Princess Diaries II. Man, drinking takes so much out of me. As usual, need to cut back.
