New York 4

My recent trip to NYC continues with Central Park. It was such a joy on a crisp spring morning to walk for miles with cameras and relatively few people. One of the advantages of being an early bird! It is huge, at over 800 acres ( compared to london's hyde park which is 350 acres)

I have been interested in other bloggers showing B&W and colour shots of the same view. Not really sure which I prefer. If you have a view do let me know.

The park reflections on this building were amazing, so much so that momentarily you are unsure exactly what you are looking at.

I was able to put my new wide angle lens through its paces on outing. Even better when people are sparse ( probably still having breakfast).

A stunningly good youth choir had informally struck up a performance in this space. The acoustics were brilliant and it drew me in to find this beautiful ceiling.

The sheer size of the park is best gauged from the top of the rock, but I think this shot across the lake, which is itself 18 acres, comes a close second.

Verdict: Central Park must be on your itinerary and given its size, leave plenty of time. Would love to know your favourite parts of the park.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

i'd love to hear from you...
