Half Price Special for the launch of our new store:“Blue Fire over a Ghostly City” 13x19 framed, signed, numbered ©Mark D Phillips

New Notecards available from our store! Packs of 10 fro $25.00

 

Here's your chance to win a signed and framed original artwork from SBN! The Best Images of 2017 on The South Brooklyn Network includes a couple of series of photographs as well as several stand-alone moments that we especially liked.

The Gowanus Canal is always one of our favorite subjects as anyone who regularly comes to our site knows. The Great American Eclipse was an event of a lifetime taking me back to my roots in North Carolina and our sister site, kidseclipse.com, taught children (and adults) the astronomical events that bring a total solar eclipse to our skies.

Baseball and sports are always high points of the year in our household and in our coverage on southbrooklyn.com and when Noah Syndergard became a Brooklyn Cyclone for a day, we could not miss Thor in Coney Island.

Photography continues to grow in Brooklyn both on southbrooklyn.com and the wealth of galleries throughout the borough. Photoville has become one of the premier worldwide events with its unique galleries of shipping containers under the Brooklyn Bridge.

So choose First, Second and Third in our Best of Gallery and enter your email address for your chance to hang your top choice on your own wall. YOU MAY ENTER UP TO FOUR TIMES! Results will be posted on February 1, 2018.

 

All the photographs are ©Mark D Phillips and are available on markdphillips.com
