Cleopatra’s Needle (Wiki) isn’t really associated with Cleopatra, and predates her quite a bit (1450BC), and Wiki has the full story about how it got to New York in 1880… it may very well be the oldest human-crafted object out in the public in NYC.
The view from the castle, which is an odd piece of architecture in my opinion to begin with, is really nice, especially the view of the Delacorte Theater and the Turtle Pond, which didn’t seem to have any ducks on ice at the moment.
This is another attempt to photograph the cop cot. The first one was beautiful, snow and everything, so I was hoping to recreate some of the magic, but I guess this scene is really difficult with out snow, so I will give it another try in winter, given that we will ever see snow again …
This is another attempt to capture the sculpture in an interesting panoramic way, I am not completely happy yet, and will have to wait for some night to try it again. Here is the previous attempt: newyorkpanorama.com/2008/08/20/alice-in-central-park
Alice in Wonderland (by José de Creeft) was commissioned by George Delacorte for his wife in 1959 and is said to be the most beloved statue in Central Park. It is certainly, together with Hans Christian Anderson, the most approachable statue, almost like a playground piece. About 500 megapixel
The lake in Central Park is simply called The Lake. Going to the Hearnshead at midnight was a bit scary, whoever you meet at that time is either scared of you, or you should be scared of them. Shooting on the streets of New York at night is no issue for me, but the Park …
I shot this panorama the same night as I shot “Hearnshead.” It was really cold, and Peter was already a bit complaining about the cold. We found one of the many strange rock formations that are very common in Central Park. Looking at this Panorrama, i think i could have choosen a slightly different location, …
Not a single turtle in the turtle pond near the castle in Central Park, but sleeping ducks, and two racoons in the bushes. Digital, about 26000x7000px.
Only one duck was out that night. And I had no idea Hans Christian Anderson was sitting here all by himself. Digital, about 26000x7000px.
Nights in Manhattan full of those beautyfully wasted photons. Just get out and capture some of them. Digital, about 25700x8000px.
