Central Park Photography

Black & White photo of Central Park, NYC, by the Lake in Spring

By The Lake - Central Park

Central Park remains one of my favorite places in New York City. I find myself returning there when I need a little bit of silence and space.

This time, I wanted to capture this classic "New York View" with the skyline across from The Lake and portray the sense of peace and quiet that prevails by the Lake in Central Park.

When the first signs of spring arrive, people rediscover the pleasure of spending more time outdoors and come to sit on these rocks. They picnic, read, listen to music or just rest. Like me, they want to enjoy the view and experience a peaceful moment before returning to Manhattan's vibrant streets and avenues.
