Summer in Central Park: WPC

As you can tell from the green leaves (not to mention the title of this post), I took these photos over the summer. I thought they were perfect for this week’s challenge: weathered.

There’s something quite beautiful about how nature weathers wood and metal–it sort of takes off the harsh edges, making the man-made blend with the naturally occurring. Continue reading “Summer in Central Park: WPC”

17 of 2017: WPC

The Weekly Photo Challenge for the last week of the year is to choose a favorite photo from the year. One single favorite photo wasn’t happening. I thought maybe the top 5 would work. But then I figured my favorite 17 of 2017 would be fun. Some of these are favorites because the quality, some because the subject, some just because. I’ll caption each one, because I just know you are waiting with baited breath to find out why I picked each pic! In no particular order: Continue reading “17 of 2017: WPC”

Fall is Finally Here: WPC

Finally, we are having autumnal weather in NYC! Not that I minded unseasonable warmth for two months, but it was getting old. Fall is my favorite season and it seems to be getting squeezed out.

That’s why when I was walking across the park last week and saw the leaves starting to change and the sunlight peeking through the leaves, casting a mottled light on the path I just had to take out my phone and snap a pic—even if I was running late for a meeting (don’t tell!) It’s wasn’t quite fall weather last week, but we were getting a sneak peek!

The Bridges of Manhattan County: WPC

Okay, okay, it’s New York County; Manhattan is a borough. Also, there are bridges from Monroe County and Oxfordshire in here. But I couldn’t help myself.

I don’t have particularly much to say about this topic. I do, apparently, enjoy photographing bridges, so you’d think I would–you’d think wrong, though!

Still, they say a picture is worth a thousand words, and I’ve got plenty of those… Continue reading “The Bridges of Manhattan County: WPC”

Shakespeare’s Garden

In case you were wondering, this is Shakespeare’s Garden in Central Park, NYC. Not, say, the garden at Shakespeare’s birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon. (Although I have been there. See?:

Now that was actually Shakespeare’s Garden.)

In any case, this Shakespeare’s Garden is tucked away in Central Park, nearish the W81th street entrance. It’s beautiful! Continue reading “Shakespeare’s Garden”
