    It’s funny how in “My view of the East River” you decided to choose the old-fashioned camera besides the advanced one because it took all the fun out of it, I also find it nice on how even though you didn’t like the camera, you accepted it anyway as a gift from your mom.

    • Dear Ethan
      I am skeptical about your poem, “As i walked out one evening,” because i think that it’s a conflicting poem. Like the two main themes are complete opposites.
      One line that stands out for me is, “Walking down Bristol Street,” I think this line is interesting because… i think that it’s a very abrupt line
      Another line that stands out for me is, “The crowds upon the pavement” I think this line is intriguing because… they give no real backstory on what this may be about.
      Your poem reminds me of a poem that I once read. The two poems had some similarities. They both had abrupt lines and they also jumped straight to the point just like this poem.
      Thanks for your poem. I look forward to seeing what you post next.

  • These pictures of Central Park are important to me because it adds a great amount of diversity when compared to other parts of New York.

    • Dear Ethan, I really like these photos, and I also like this part of the park, looking forward to what you post next

      Dear Ethan,
      I find your perspective on the topic of nyc parks pretty interesting. You look at a park aesthetically and it is a good idea to enjoy nature. You stated “diversity” in which I agree upon but there are also aspects of a park that are pleasing. For example, you go to a playground and you see children of many ages playing around cheerfully in a playground, you feel joy as you see kids enjoy themselves. I look forward to seeing what you post next, because it shows how much you are interested about NYC and it’s parks. I also have the same topic and have my own blog which is co-owned by a few of my peers. If you want to check it out, it is https//:parks.home.blog . Thanks for your writing.

    • Dear Ethan :
      I am amazed by your photo of central park because you chose very relaxing and calm spots in central park. I also like the camera angles that you took them from. One photo that really stands out for me is the photo of the water. I think this is interesting because it’s the only photo that’s different from all the other photos. Another part that I like is the first and the last photo, and the reason why I like these two photos is because it shows. Your photos reminds me of when I was younger and I used to just relax and just hang out at the park. Not having a care in the world. Thanks for your photos. I look forward to seeing what you make next, because it reminds me of easier times.

    Why do I get this feeling that before you published this, the poem of yours was longer, and you deleted the bits you didn’t really need to make your poem more powerful, which it surely is. Am I right or nah
