Practicing my Vestibular Rehabilitation Along the Upper Road by Barbara Dexter

Practicing my Vestibular Rehabilitation Along the Upper Road by Barbara Dexter

These are a series of photographs taken along the “Upper Road” just off Cherry Lane in West Orange. The angles of many of the trees are done while practicing my vestibular rehabilitation. In vestibular rehabilitation you walk over and around obstacles and focus your vision at odd angles. I believe nature can be seen and enjoyed from many different angles. This road is just a short distance from the parking lot for the Orange reservoir.

New Year’s Day At Eagle Rock Reservation by Barbara Dexter

Well it is New Year’s Day and I decide to try out my camera on the lights of New York City as seen from Eagle Rock Reservation. The view is spectacular. The photos were taken from the 9/11 Memorial.

The Yarn Show in NYC (“Vogue Knitting Live”) by Barbara Dexter

The Yarn Show in NYC (“Vogue Knitting Live”) by Barbara Dexter

The Yarn Show in NYC (“Vogue Knitting Live” is happening this weekend at the Marriott Marquis in downtown Manhattan. Join in the fun of learning new techniques at one of the many classes or just simply visit the vendors. It is a very friendly gathering of knitters. The teachers and vendors are very helpful .

I started out my day by visiting the tables just off the elevators, right before the entrance. Then went on to the market place to meet vendors.
