|The view from Central Park South.....I stayed at the wonderful Essex House.|
Wow! I can scarcely believe I was there.....and now am back again!
It always amazes me to think that I leave San Francisco, looking down at the Pacific Ocean....and a mere five hours later, I am staring down at the Atlantic Ocean! I had great flights - both ways....I LUV *Virgin America*!
I had a lot of goals in my few days in the *Big Apple*....photograph some of my favourite parts, visit the Frick and Metropolitan Museums and perhaps meet up with my Ex and see Bofie... and hey.....I did all of that!
My first two days were showery.....so the skies were grey....
|One of the many beautiful tunnels in Central Park. There are several, and each one is completely different architecturally.|
|Look closely and you will see a touch of LILAC in the tree....I had missed the Cherry and Plum Trees blossoming.....but, everything was lush and green.|
|My favourite lake with the City Skyline shrouded in mist....|
|King Stanislaus of Poland.... I have loved this statue for years...|
|This little vine-like shelter leads down to my most beloved part of Central Park.. it began to pour....and I was happy to be nearby to seek cover!|
Here is my beloved pond..during my years in NY, I have photographed this spot in all four seasons...it ALWAYS spoke to me since I first walked here. During my last trip, in 2008, the surrounding site was under construction....and I feared I would never walk here again.
|A Castle in Central Park? Of course, the beautiful Belvedere Castle...there's a Turtle Pond below it and to the right, out of sight, an open-air theater, where Shakespeare and other plays are performed during warm Summer nights.|
|A NY Turtle napping with a NY Goose! I did see some Goslings...but they scrambled down a hill and with my still-shaky knee, I couldn't follow.|
|I love this view of the BACK of the Metropolitan Museum....it's a Pyramid, because it houses the Egyptian Collections..|
|The building is under construction....but Barney Greengrass is OPEN....here, you get the BEST breakfasts in town...bagels, lox. sturgeon.... my Ex and I ALWAYS went here...|
Emily adores New York!! A-ha-ha!
This is Part 1 of my photos......more tomorrow!
I missed you all!
