Wednesday walk Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza and Steem Basic Income Give away

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

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

Try to limit yourself to a set distance or time from the starting location, say 5 Blocks, 5 Minutes walk or whatever and see what you can find in that short distance

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.

Following me and resteeming the post so more see it would be appreciated but isn't a rule just a suggestion, but you may have a better chance of receiving a Steem Basic Income Share if you do.

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

I will try and visit, resteem and upvote all who take part in the Wednesday Walk, plus I will be sending @steembasicincomeshares to a selection of those who participate.

For this weeks post, I will share with you a visit to Dag Hammarskjold Plaza

Dag Hammarskjold Plaza is a little park on east 47th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues.
The park is quite close to the United Nations compound, which is quite appropriate as he was the Second Secretary general for the United Nations, he sadly lost his life while serving the UN in an airplane crash in Congo.

This is taken in the center of the park, which is just a couple of blocks from my new office location so I will be regularly taken a stroll around a little loop which will take me through this park.
and in this first shot are most of the things I will feature other shots of in this post, the Market you can see in the distance, however, will have to wait for my Market Friday post this week for @dswigle.

The park or Plaza as it is also sometimes called has quite a few fountains, including this one

Another thing that you always see lot sof in this park are Pigeons, and they really love the fountains it seems.

And you may have noticed int he first shot the Park has a lot of trees, this is a shot looking up one of them, they give a nice bit of shade while walking through or sitting on one of the many benches in the park, on a rela hot day that makes walking through this park more pleasant than walking on open streets in the sun.

And my last photo for this post shows one of the lights in the Park, I like the old style feel of the lamps.

you may wonder what the Basket for is under the lamp, I was actually suprised to see them empty, often flowers are planted in these baskets, maybe they were holding off adding new ones with the heat wave that was going on when I took these shots.

Steem Basic Income give away

I mentioned in the guidelines that from this week I will be sponsoring a few who join the #wednesdaywalk challenge with shares on Steem Basic Income

What is Steem Basic Income you may ask well here is how they explain it

Steem Basic Income is a social experiment to bring a basic income to as many Steemians as possible. Members join by sponsoring others into the program. Steem Basic Income is delivered through providing regular upvotes to member content. so I have decided to randomly send some Steem to add shares for some of my followers so on the weekend I sponsored the following people
@steven-patrick, @redheadpei, @starjewel, @rossfletcher, @swedishdragon, @lyndsaybowes, @saffisara, @eaglespirit,

All people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk, 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.
