sunny central park

I was in between appointments the other day and found myself in Central Park with a little time on my hands. It was a beautiful sunny day and I really needed some quiet time so I walked slowly and aimlessly around the park.

I saw beauty in the stark contrast between man and nature...


I found a maze of shadows and light...


I captured love walking along the cobblestone sidewalks of Fifth Avenue...


I basked in the sunlight and nourished my weary winter soul in its glowing rays...



Playing at 52 Photos Project today where the theme is "nourish".

And popping by The Creative Exchange too!

P.S. I've got another fantastic interview from my {In The Picture} series coming up this Friday--I hope you will pop by to say hello to our featured self-portrat artist! See you then...

Hi Christy,
I'm with you on trying to soak up any sun this time of year. It's like gold. Love the golden light that you've captured in these! And like the other visitors, I find the shot of the older couple endearing:)

I just booked a trip to NYC for the end of March. I miss the city so much and haven't been there in almost 4 years!! I can't wait to be inspired :)

I will definitely pop by...I loved the last interview with Patti. That was amazing.
Love that silhouette shot you had in the lead, but that older couple holding hands has such a sweet feel.
Hope all is well and the sun will shine for you tomorrow in NYC.
