Photography: Central Park 1/29/22

The Northeast was hit by a massive Nor’easter this weekend, which dropped massive amounts of snow across the region: While we received about 7″-8″ here in New York, the Boston area received about three feet!

Yesterday, I braved the frigid temperatures — it was 18º F during the day — and went to Central Park with my Canon 6D Mark II to take some snow day photos.

Caption: Bethesda Fountain and Terrace is one of my favorite places in the entire world. And I suspect that i’ll wind up taking pictures of it for the rest of my days. Of course, I couldn’t help but think of how far we’ve come in just over a year. Around this time last year, I was in Central Park — for the same reason. The park was virtually empty. Despite, the frigid temperatures, people were out and about — to take photos, to play in the snow or to take their children out to play in the snow.

Caption: This woman was gingerly walking down these slush and snow covered steps. Funny thing, I was that just a moment before, I was chatting with a fellow photographer and I joked about being scared to walk down the steps — because of the expensive lens I had. You always protect the glass, as all photographers know! Other than a brief, precarious moment, where it looked like she was about to fall, she managed the steps.
