Photo by myself in Bryant Park, at 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue.
The NY Parks Department does its job well, especially at the Bryant Park. Not only are the flowers and landscaping superb, but the lawn is well tended. Humans are prohibited after any major rainfall.
The lawn is wonderfully thick and green, with few brown patches. You wouldn't know that during the summer months, hundreds of people sit and lie out here daily.
All right, the following is a bit about me. Apologies, but you've been warned!
It rained steadily on Sunday. A cold, drippy rain, that postponed the mens' final game of the US Open and kept Mark and I stuck inside all day.
We were bored, and sat glumly on the sofa. We had grand plans about spending an entire afternoon walking downtown, taking photos. Drat.
Since returning from vacation, getting back into my routine has been super tough. One day I was walking around, taking photos constantly, immersed in a new city. Then I came home and photography has been reduced to a moment here and there.
As my lawyer brother would say, 'Okay then Kitty, what is the POINT'?! (He is a very practical person, bless him).
I guess my point is...for every major change, there is adjustment. It rains, you close the lawn, the soil dries out and the grass becomes hardier. Just so, you go away, you return to 'normality' and start seeing your 'normal' life a little differently.
I'm not sure where this is headed. Quite possibly nowhere...but metaphorically, the lawn is closed.
No worries, daily posts will continue here as usual. I just need some time for repair.
