Saturday in the Park - Central Park, New York

Central Park, Manhattan, New York

This is an old photo that I took several years ago when I was documenting New York's Central Park for my son's movie short as part of his time with the NY Film Academy. I had been to New York many times, but spent much of that time in the Wall Street area. This was the first time I really walked the park and captured some of its beauty. The park is quite large, taking up almost 850 acres of some of the most valuable real estate in the US. As I walked around, I was surprised at the many tranquil scenes that I came across. When I walked past this pond with the pedestrian bridge in the background, the song "Saturday in the Park" by Chicago (originally known as the Chicago Transit Authority) came to mind.
