This is the second installment of my New York City series. You don’t have to read them in order, but here’s a link to the first one, if you want to.
Our first adventure in New York City was to walk through Central Park. We couldn’t have asked for better weather that day either. It started off as a chilly morning, but the sun was out and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky.
We started at the south (?) end of the park; the end where the zoo is. And initially, we wanted to walk through the zoo, but we didn’t want to pay to go to that part, and we didn’t really have time to do that during this visit. There was more that we wanted to see in the park.
Neither one of us could get over the open green space with the tall city buildings in the background. It was very different than what we’re used to here in Wisconsin. Our parks are not surrounded by buildings that are taller than the trees.
My husband overheard some people talking and they said that this was the building from Ghostbusters. I’m glad that he overheard them talking because if he hadn’t told me, I wouldn’t have bothered photographing this building. I also really enjoy seeing the reflection of the building in the water.
There were many bridges in Central Park, and each one was a different style. I wish I was able to photograph all of them, but there were way too many people, and I want to be able to use these photos for my business.
We walked to the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, which was about halfway through the park. This is one of my favorite images of the day. I am a sucker for reflections, and this one is so different from all of the other ones I have. I’m not typically a fan of photographing buildings, but I couldn’t resist this opportunity to combine nature and manmade objects. Once we made it to this part of the park we headed back to our hotel. It was getting late and we had a date.
I think the fall color in New York City was better than it was in Wisconsin. Either that, or it just was further along on the east coast than it was in the midwest.
I will blog about our main reason for going to New York City tomorrow.
