Central Park, New York City, August 21, 2022

A photograph taken in Central Park, New York City. The view is southwest over The Pond. In the foreground are blooming yellow flowers. The mid ground is the pond and trees surrounding it. In the background, skyscrapers tower.

I visited New York City this summer and took in the city and its galleries. I took a spin through Central Park on a Sunday and it was jam-packed with people doing all sorts of things.

But a close look revealed moments of natural stillness and beauty.
