bavenius01 It feels like it's been cloudy and dreary for a month, but I only had to go back in my reel a few days to find some #sunshine . Sunshine is apparently not that hard to find if you can see beyond the clouds. #MadSqArt #TonyCragg #WalksOfLife #Flatiron 4d

bavenius01 Thank you all for sharing your work, your hopes, your opinions, your view on the world. Thank you for taking the time to let me know what you thought about mine. Here's to a new year where people respect and appreciate different ways of looking at the world for what they are- the things that make us human. 5d

bavenius01 Every January when we take out the tree, I contemplate getting a fake the next year. But then I quickly remember the joy in my kids' faces as we run around looking for the perfect tree. The sound of their cheering when we cut it and it falls to the ground. The hot chocolate and (grown-up spiked) cider with good friends at our tailgate party. I look at all the little air-cleansing saplings that have been planted and may become our #tree in 10 years. I think of the friendly family at Battenfeld's from whom we buy our tree each year, and the local jobs that depend on their #farm. I think of the little shops with unique wares and food spots in #Rhinebeck that we invariably support later in the afternoon. I think of the fresh smell of the #outdoors brought into our home. And suck it up and vacuum the needles. 1w

bavenius01 #ff This is a big wheel that goes round and round. We share. We observe. We learn. We encourage. We get better. We share. And so on. I'm committing to sharing the great experiences I enjoy on #instagram And exploring. And learning. And getting better and more adventurous. And sharing that with people who see the world the same way. This week, I'd like to introduce you to four artists whose work I enjoy and am inspired by:

  •   kendraclarkphotography Brian, you are a gentleman! Sounds silly but I got a little lump in my throat! I'm a softie, what can I say?

  •   bavenius01 Thank you, Darrell! That's largely my style! 4d

bavenius01 Want to know what it feels like to have super powers? Try sitting in the driver's seat of a true sports car. Grab the shifter. Feel the Gs push you back into the seat. Imagine for a moment that you can fly. You'll never forget it. 1w

bavenius01 Heading to the back of the bus where the cool kids hang.
Built to operate in #NewYorkCity , #Bus 3100 began as an experiment – it was the first air-conditioned transit bus in the United States. This General Motors model introduced an air-ride suspension that remains the standard, as well as other novel features like padded seats, wraparound rear seating and fluorescent lighting. After nearly two decades of service on the streets of #NYC, followed by assignment to the Transit Police, Number 3100 was retired in the mid-70s and restored to its original appearance in the early 90s. It is making appearances around Manhattan as part of the Transit Authority’s vintage bus and subway program during December.

These are all some fantastically talented photographers- you may know some of them already. If not, you'll be glad you found them.

bavenius01 Sometimes the weight of your load becomes too heavy to bear, and you have to set it down for a moment. But don't get too comfortable, because the world still needs to hear your music. 2w

bavenius01 A thousand "thank you"s. I happened to look up after deleting (I think) all of the trolls and cam girls, and was shocked and pleasantly surprised to see there were still four digits in my number of followers. I don't do this to rack up likes or followers, but to be a part of an engaged, like-minded community of people who share the same passions. Thanks to every one of you who has been part of that so far. I hope you stick around. 3w
