A 52-Week Photo Journey

Week 34 – #49. Tiny World


While visiting New York, you will not have trouble finding many neighborhood bars/restaurants such as the “tiny world” of Tiny’s and the Bar Upstairs, a three-story townhouse located at 135 W. Broadway in the heart of Tribeca. The building dates to 1810 and much of the original materials have been restored and overlayed with whimsical American finish detail. In addition, the space is decorated with pieces dating back as far as 100 years. The rooms are finished with brick, two-tone antique wallpaper, original tin ceilings, salvaged wood paneling, custom banquettes and hand-made tile. The cozy back dining room has a wood burning fireplace in the center and lights embedded in the original brick walls around the perimeter. My photo processing involved isolating the attached buildings and applying a faded desaturation, not because they were not attractive but because I wanted to draw your attention to the pale pink façade and size of Tiny’s and the Bar Upstairs. As I was planning the composition, etc. I noticed this beautiful blonde headed my way so I waited for her to enter the frame before I took the photo.

A true Southerner, I was born in Georgia but lived most of my adult life in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In 2001, my husband and I retired and moved to beautiful Sarasota, FL. We quickly realized that we were not retirement material and could not play golf two or three times a week so we got our real estate licenses and affiliated with Coldwell Banker on Longboat Key. My love for photography is very beneficial to me when photographing interiors and exteriors of the homes we list. Other than photography, I have a keen interest in genealogy and golf (whenever I can find the spare time from our real estate practice).
