Photo blog day 282, May 22, 2011

I slid into my carseat at 5:55 a.m. The skin on my arms rose into goosebumps in protest to the chilly leather seat. As I drove down my street in the early morning light I listened to an author speak on the radio imploring us to believe in the possibility of time travel. I thought I was still dreaming. The peace of the morning and the lack of caffeine somehow allowed me to tune out the speaker and just drive. I met up with my group and we made our way into New York City for another photo walk. [Click here to see my last trip]. On the ride we discussed the weather and how we hoped the forecast would revert back to the sunny/70’s it had originally said instead of the overcast/60’s that was listed for the day. We weren’t so lucky. Under an overcast sky that was dismal and threatening we pushed onwards. We spent the morning walking through Central Park looking for photo opportunities. Stopping as a group and commenting on this angle or that. I hadn’t been to Central Park before other than to drive through it so it was a treat to see how nature and man have come together. I especially loved the skyline of the city juxtaposed with the lush nature of the park.
