town | snowy central park

Bridge
Sledding
Benches
Cross Country Skier

when i look back on photos of snow, the atmosphere seems so lovely. a sublime blend of tranquility and fun. but, at the time they're being taken, i'm encouraging scott to hang in there as we seem to be walking for miles while thinking 'just get this over with'. the problem with that is snow is so damn photogenic, especially in b&w, so we miss it when it's gone.

this weekend we hope to see gallery shows featuring photos by vivian maier, flickr friend trish mayo, and check-up on what charlie & his home health aide, shakira, have been up to. enjoy your weekend!

xo, cindy

These are great, great pictures - the first one and third one are very fairy-tale-like!

The snow is sooooo pretty....love your photos of it. But I must say...we are having unseasonably warm weather here...and I am so happy....I really don't ever remember having warm weather around my b-day. The snow has ruined more than one birthday plan through the years. Thanks for the happy wishes....and I will let you know if I'm ever early to work..... :)
Happy weekend.

Your photos are beautiful, and i especially love the black and white. They look vintage in a (good) way! I miss visiting the park. I'm originally from New England and visited NYC quite often. But i've lived in OR for the last 16 years and haven't been back to the City in a long time. When my husband and i fly back, we tend to spend our visits with family. But this summer... anyway, i love your blog and will visit often. :)
