Weekly Photo Challenge: Saturated

My entry for the Weekly Challenge: Saturated consists of a few shots captured with my cell phone. I’m sharing a little green from my little corner of the concrete jungle.

Bonus: I grew up on healthy doses of Sesame Street and Lena Horne was an icon in my childhood home.  I hadn’t seen this clip or heard this rendition of  It Isn’t Easy Bein’ Green in years.  I’m glad I thought to seek it out to add to this post.

Lena (we only ever used her first name at home) sings this with such feeling and authenticity. Even if you don’t know her story, you can just tell she knows the challenges of being “green” in a world that doesn’t value the full spectrum.

    • Thanks for visiting and commenting. Behind the green door is a green business called Ice Stone. They create beautiful countertops from 100% recycled glass. They are tenants in the Brooklyn Navy Yard where I work.

      Kermit is a cutie!

    I’m so glad you remembered that clip too. I loved Lena Horne (didn’t dare to call her Lena). Her voice was absolutely inimitable, and she was so beautiful! Kermit’s beautiful too.
    Loved all the photos, your shadow, and your silhouette on the mural wall, O Green Tree.
