PhotoHunt: Together



I love New York City because of its architectural masterpieces, glittering cultural gems, palpable history unfolding each second. It can be daunting for first timers, a bit impersonal, very taxing. Central Park though can offer a breather to the overwhelmed.


There you might just see, among the stringed benches lined up against unbelievable flora in the City That Never Sleeps, a testament to a love that humbles any skyscraper.

this was my first Central Park visit and it is quite an experience- a shutterbug will go bonkers in it, what with all the sights that are just *there* ready to be photographed =]

I like the benches looks like that. I could always have a good book there and set for a while. :)

Thanks for the hop!~

thanks again everyone for visiting!

this set of benches surround the IMAGINE mosaic in the Strawberry Fields area of Central Park. if i remember correctly, the plaque belongs to another bench we've encountered earlier in our walk through Central Park, from the MoMA side.

regardless, whenever you're there in New York, or we're just in our corners of the world, it's best for us to be on the lookout for small surprises and wonders that surround us =]

have a great week ahead!
