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!
To 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.
