Looking Out From Within

This photo was taken from inside Central Park. The buildings in the background are the properties lining 60th Street between 5th and 6th Avenue, otherwise known as Central Park South. It always amazes me that we have such a lush and beautiful park in the middle of the city.

Notice the couple sitting on the bench at the bottom of the photo? Can you imagine how peaceful and relaxing it must feel to be them. Me, I was leaning over a rail behind some bushes trying to take this photo. :-)

No question today.

I love Central Park. I wish I had more time to spend there.

Actually, there IS a question. Yes, I can imagine how peaceful it must be to be there on that bench—and how hard it must have been for you to take a shot that didn't include hundreds of people. Nicely done. I almost feel as though I'm there.

Good photographers have to be good stalkers. I've done that a time or two myself. That is a gorgeous shot. Take a bow Ming!

Hi Ming! Sorry for the absence, but I’ve been busy with my parents’ health; almost 180 years to care... ;)
This is one of my favourite views of NYC! Great shot!!
