Revisiting New York City

I took quite a few photographs in New York City, but just realized I had only posted a few.

Here were some of the highlights of the trip:

For those that have never been to Central Park, it is quite expansive and has many nooks and crannies to explore. It even has exposed bedrock. Yes, even natural landscape shots can be found in one of the most densely populated areas in the United States.

One morning, while Megan and I were walking around a pond at Morningside Park, Megan spotted this yellow lab that really, I mean really wanted to take a swim. Its owner fought back.

Megan's grandmother lives on Riverside Drive, which runs along the western edge of Manhattan, just to the west of Riverside Park. Here, you can walk down to the Hudson River. The wide open expanse of the river was really quite a contrast from the closed, confined, and tight spaces of Manhattan.

And finally, back to central park. I've realized that statures make wonderful portrait subjects. They stand still for you and they never talk back. It is a bit tough to get them to change expressions though. This lovely lady shares her space with three other women, who have their hands joined, encircling a fountain at the conservatory garden.
