Photo by myself near the Bethesda Fountain in Central Park, around 72nd Street.
This open area is a major gathering place in the park among many.
Tons of events go on in Central Park, often at the same time - people run around a man-made reservoir and many roads and paths, horse-drawn carts pull visitors, weddings take place in the Conservatory garden, kids visit the zoo.
I was in Central Park the other day, where my boyfriend Mark was on a shoot for a commercial he's working on.
He's filming Friday through Sunday, working full days, coming home with a sore back and feet. The work on film or video shoots can be tough - waking up at 5 am, standing around for hours at a time, waiting for a cloud to shift and the light to change.
Working as a freelancer is feast or famine. Luckily for Mark, it's been the former. He's been going from project to project at this one office for a couple months. It's high stress work though, with no room for error. He's always on the phone, checking his emails at all hours, working out schedules and logistics.
By 9:30, he's pooped, falling asleep on the sofa next to me.
