A walk through Central Park on September 5, 2013 did wonders for my soul as I wondered through this oasis on a sunlit New York City day. I started shooting along the Jaqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir near 86th Street, then the Belvedere Castle (built in 1919) and finally The Ramble, where I met some "professional" birdwatchers. I have not been much of a bird watcher -- or bird photographer -- but today I got hooked.
Even when I wasn't shooting, I truly enjoyed the music they were making around me. And when one or two finally flew from a tall tree into high grass and sticks, I was able to get a few shots off. Was it an Oriole or Red Robin? Still doing the research. But either way, one of them stood still just long enough to get some of my best work done. Aside from a few other friendly creatures, just taking shots of the winding walkways was a pleasure as many are lined with beautiful stones. The history behind the creation of Central Park is fascinating and I urge all visitors to New York to spend considerable time there. You simply don't feel like you are in a city at all and that's what makes it extra special.

I'd be equally honored if you shared the prints or this gallery on social media (easy to do) and even more honored if you purchased any of the prints using our simple online ordering system. (Don't worry - the watermarks you see online disappear when you place an order). Finally, please leave any comments below or on any other social media channel where this post appears as well as in our guestbook at www.RichKlein.zenfolio.com.
Thank you again for your support of my work.
