"Snowberries"


Without snow shield or macro lens but open to anything ....and the nice crisp cold air is great for comfortable "mask weather".

Today I returned to a favorite spot, with a little hill loved by sledders, and plenty of snow being used for snowmen & snow fortresses.




This snowman I found in the middle of Central Park in my last blizzard fun (2016) - More: http://www.fenichel.com/blizzard16.shtml

I ("coincidentally") came across this just now, sent to me 10 years ago by a then-74-yr-old woman, a treatment of my Central Park photo, which she insisted needed to include a Christmas tree. So she did it & wrote to me that she posted this to her "blob".

The original is here

It is what it is


Mini-spoiler: In the city life goes on, if altered and unevenly. This is the week of Chanukah and Christmas shopping and celebrations. Or not. Distance. Masks. Here a long line for a food store as a blizzard ("Noreaster") approaches. In a pandemic (did I mention?) Sigh. Enough 2020.

Random find (&/or YT algorithm-gods)

New York in the mid 1930's in Color!


Not as exciting to me as a 1911 film I'd seen, with more scenes of daily city life, and the sounds (street cars, etc.)...
[https://youtu.be/hZ1OgQL9_Cw ]

But this is also interesting. Documenting a historic time, towards the end of the Great Depression.

Not much skyline, visually ("sky scrapers") other than Empire State Building, lots of flat land still, and big ships in the ports... but ah, the music here made me stay. Almost klezmer/big band.

Good weekend. #StaySafe

I agree
Wise words from Mr. Gardener. By Chance. It's quieter, calmer, eerier. And safer too. From my very-socially-distanced walk in the park.

OK, Alexa....

All You Need is Love


Yes, please. The song and a return to (New York) normalcy.

Remembering John Lennon, who would have turned 80 this past week (Oct 9 2020)

JOHN LENNON: Oh, My Love


Some "Context & Perspective" - This is the view from a very sweet and powerful spot, for John Lennon once and for many people still. The view is from Central Park, with Strawberry Fields to the right, Pleasant Place, just here, and looking up ahead: it's where this song was written (The Dakota). To me this is one of the most beautiful love songs ever. Pure and inspired. Written by John in the last joyful chapter of his life, devoted to love and family, "for the first time in my life". He was blossoming in what he envisioned as a new life....

Saturday, in the Park.... You'd think it was the fourth of July...

Central Park, 10 October 2020


Well, it was warm but not hot, and there were many people, but distanced and masked.
Smart and safe, and joyful too, with some wedding parties and receptions and photo shoots.

Almost like "normal street photography with masks". And - sigh - already got a copyright claim notice within hours from evil Google.

Saturday in the Park .... Imagine


Well, there were wedding receptions, Lennon celebrations, geese, ducks and a "homing pigeon" (landing on people's head).
Other than that, I can say that I've not seen the park with so many people since March. Wow. And almost everybody masked,.
A Central Park Ball. I also saw several chalk signs for "Find Bear", a facebook page. (Check it out. I didn't see Bear.)
The only colors were a few plants and the Imagine mosaic offerings. The trees are decidedly all solid green. No climate change here!

And, in an alternate October, here comes, live! 10 days of Steely Dan, with different themed concert sets.
Ending with Gaucho Oct 22. All this was real. Before all this became surreal. Happy Weekend!

I just realized this is brand new, from The Pretenders!
Yes her voice has endured and some say, ripened ... And what a song! A new album, said to be golden throughout.

Maybe love is in NYC. I know we don't feel much hate. People may be (physically) distant, but are mostly kind and thoughtful.
Truly, I believe New York has had its share of trauma in recent times, between 9/11 and #trumpvirus. But most feel "in it together".

And life goes on, even with so man - everywhere - numb, anxious, suffering PTSD, or in a state of denial. We do the best we can.
