We took a walk around the Central Park Reservoir with the light just perfect so I shot an in-camera sweep panorama looking towards the East-Southeast. Then, after about a 3/4 circuit, another shot of the southern park skyline with the impudent new needle-nose skyscrapers giving us the finger, below.
Also in Dyer’s The Ongoing Moment, a look at the bench in photography, how it’s been used by different photographers and how their images can be seen to play off one another. Of course, the benches under discussion were occupied by people (like the ones below I took in the early 1970s). This bird bespattered bench was in an odd, out-of-the way spot where it’s hard to imagine anyone stopping.
At the north end of the park, ice flowed down glacial rocks. A stunning sight, it was difficult to quickly capture an interesting picture (click either image to see them both enlarged).
Perfect for the haiku project?
Safely back in the UK for a day or two, now I still have a surfeit of NY pictures to work through for the coming week or so…
