Friday's Fotos-Girl in Central Park and then The Guggenheim

Friday's Fotos-Girl in Central Park

Joanna Cohlan and I were hustling along trying to see many things before heading to The Met to meet our friend, Susan to check out the fashion exhibit there and we briefly walked by Central Park, even though I didn't get to go behind the stone walls that surrounded where we were walking, across from The Guggenheim (which she briefly showed me as I am a big fan of Frank Lloyd Wright who designed it) on the upper East side of New York City. 

After having a quick conversation with a city worker over our both having the denigrated "flip phones" (I didn't feel so badly after I discovered that someone in NYC ALSO still had a flip phone!), I turned to see this flame-haired beauty surrounded by spring greenery and sunshine that presented such a colorful juxtaposition to her hair, the black of her clothing and the gray ruddiness of the tree and rock acting as a natural frame and I was completely enchanted!  

Girl in Central Park-Gayle Rich-Boxman Copyrighted All Rights Reserved 2016To me, she looked like a modern-day fairytale princess (except for the leather)! And the colors were just so...well...pretty.  The hues, the textures and the contrasts reminded me of a modern version of the maiden floating down a stream, Musee de Louvre; Ophelia. 

It was a solitary moment of calmness in a city not known for that.

Joanna, really hardly did a thing to this photo. The eery quality of the sunlight really showed up with a bit of contrast. That was about all. My favorite editing program,!

OH Mimi Foster I heard them all rattling around in my head! So, it would be fun to read YOUR stories that this whips up in that creative writer's mind that you possess!

Why, Lou Ludwig what a nice surprise to see you here! Thank you for the gracious compliment.

Hi Gayle... it's not just women who don't or shouldn't wander around Central Park after dark... men, as well.

Beutiful Central Park photo and contrast with a classic. When I lived in Manhattan near Central Park, it was my nature refuge. Hope you didn't miss the Frick Museum, my favorite, just across the street from the park.

I love the photo - and her red hair. I know you are a red-head at heart despite  your blond locks.  You do have the "eye" for getting the perfect shot. Thanks for sharing more of your New York minutes with us. D

Gayle, I really wish I'd known you were up there!  I lived in an old brownstone 5th floor walk up for many years right around the corner from the Metropolitan Museum.  It's a few hours from DC, and it would have been great fun toshow you and Joanna my old stomping grounds!  Next time.

Your photo is amazing - what a capture!  And the colors make each other stand out!

That is a striking photo! You have such talent!

I've not been to the Guggenheim in NY - hard to believe with my love of art and having lived in New England fro 20+ years. Did see the Peggy Guggenheim Musuem in Venice, however. My fave collection I think is the Paris musuems

After growing up in the area, these fotos make the place more romatic than what they actually are.  Women would not want to venture in this park alone..... May be conditions have changed.....

What is more important is -- that solitary moment of calmness in hustle and bustle of New York City. (lived for 5 years there and I know how fast the life is!)
